“We meditate on the transcendental glory of
the Deity Supreme,
who is inside the heart of the earth,
inside the life of the sky,
and inside the soul of the heaven.
May He stimulate and illumine our minds. ”
– The Gayatri Mantra
From Delight we came into existence.
In Delight we grow.
At the end of our journey’s close,
Into Delight we retire.

Lead me from darkness unto Light.
Lead me from death to Immortality.
“Truth alone triumphs.”
“Whatever takes form is false.
Only the formless endures.
When you understand
The truth of this teaching,
You will not be born again.
For God is infinite,
Within the body and without,
Like a mirror,
And the image in a mirror.
As the air is everywhere,
Flowing around a pot
And filling it,
So God is everywhere,
Filling all things
And flowing through them forever.”
– Ashtavakra Gita 1: 18-20
“Among the wealthy, compassionate men claim the richest wealth,
For material wealth is possessed by even contemptible men.

For if the various ways are examined, compassion will prove the means to liberation.”
– Tirukkural 25: 241-242
