Hindu Quote of the Day

The soul's attachment to the body resembles a fledgling Which forsakes its empty shell and flies away. Death is like falling asleep, And birth is like waking from that sleep. Not yet having a permanent home, The soul takes temporary shelter in the body.


Tirukkural 34:328-340
