    The unexamined life is not worth living.

    Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

    Obscurity and a competence – that is the life that is best worth living.

    “Because children grow up, we think a child’s purpose is to grow up. But a child’s purpose is to be a child. Nature doesn’t disdain what lives only for a day. It pours the whole of itself into the each moment. We don’t value the lily less for not being made of flint and built to last. Life’s bounty is in its flow, later is too late. Where is the song when it’s been sung? The dance when it’s been danced? It’s only we humans who want to own the future, too. We persuade ourselves that the universe is modestly employed in unfolding our destination. We note the haphazard chaos of history by the day, by the hour, but there is something wrong with the picture. Where is the unity, the meaning, of nature’s highest creation? Surely those millions of little streams of accident and wilfulness have their correction in the vast underground river which, without a doubt, is carrying us to the place where we’re expected! But there is no such place, that’s why it’s called utopia. The death of a child has no more meaning than the death of armies, of nations. Was the child happy while he lived? That is a proper question, the only question. If we can’t arrange our own happiness, it’s a conceit beyond vulgarity to arrange the happiness of those who come after us.”

    Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities.

    Chadariya jheeni re jheeni 

    chadariya jheeni re jheeni, raam naam ras bheeni;

    The fabric (body) is subtle, very subtle, indeed; it is woven with the essence of God’s name;

    asht kamal ka charkha banaya, panch tatwa ki pooni;

    The eight lotuses (chakras) made the spinning wheel which spun the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether) to make the fabric;

    nau das mas bunan ko lage, murakh maili keeni.

    It took nine months (ten lunar months) for its weaving, and foolish people defile it;

    jab mori chadar ban ghar ai, rangrez ko deeni;

    Once the fabric was made and brought home, it was given to the dyer (guru) for colouring;

    aisa rang ranga rangrez ne, lalo laal kar deeni.

    The dyer coloured it with such skill that it became brilliantly red (illumined);

    chadar ode sanka mat kariye, ye do din tumko deeni;

    As you wear this fabric, do not have doubts; it is a gift to you for two days only;

    murakh log bhed nahi jaane, din din maili keeni.

    Foolish people do not know the secret of this fabric, and day after day they pollute it;

    dhruv prahalad sudama ne odhi, shukdev ne nirmal keeni;

    Dhruv, Prahalad, Sudama and Shukdev wore this fabric and purified it;

    das kabir ne aisi odhi, jyon ki tyon dhari deeni.

    The servant Kabir wore it in such a way, that he returned it in the condition in which he received it.

    People pay for what they do, and still more for what they have allowed themselves to become. And they pay for it simply: by the lives they lead.

    சந்தனம் எங்கள் நாட்டின் புழுதி- Santhanam engal naatin puzhudhi lyrics 

    சந்தனம் எங்கள் நாட்டின் புழுதி
    கிராம மனைத்தும் தவ பூமி
    சிறுமியர் ரெல்லாம் தேவியின் வடிவம்
    சிறுவ ரனைவரும் ராமனே
    சிறுவ ரனைவரும் ராமனே

    கோயிலைப் போலே உடல்கள் புனிதம்
    மாந்தரனைவரும் உபகாரி
    சிங்கத்துடனே விளையாடிடுவோம்
    ஆவினம் எங்கள் அன்புத்தாய்
    காலையில் ஆலய மணிகள் முழங்கும்
    கிளிகள் கண்ணன் பெயர் பாடும்
    (சிறுமியர்ரெல்லாம்)

    உழைப்பால் விதியை மாற்றிடும் மண்ணிது
    உழைப்பின் நோக்கம் பொது நலமே
    தியாகமும் தவமும் கவிகள் பாட்டின்
    கருவாய் அமையும் நாடிது
    கங்கை போலே தூய ஞானம்
    ஜீவ நதியெனப் பாய்ந்திடும்
    (சிறுமியர்ரெல்லாம்)

    போர்க்களந் தன்னிலே எங்கள் வீரர்
    புனித கீதையை ஓதுவர்
    ஏர்முனையின் கீழ் தவழ்ந்து வருவாள்
    எங்கள் அன்னை சீதையே
    வாழ்வின் முடிவாய் விளங்குவதிங்கு
    இறைவன் திருவடி நீழலே
    (சிறுமியர்ரெல்லாம்)

    santhanam engal naatin puzhudhi
    graamam anaithum thava bhoomi
    sirumiyar ellam deviyin vadivam
    siruvar anaivarum raamane

    kovilai pole udalgal punitham
    maandar anaivarum upakaari
    singathudane vilaiyadiduvom
    aavinam engal anbu thai
    kaalaiyil aalaya manigal muzhangum
    kiligal kannan peyar paadum
    sirumiyar ellam deviyin vadivam
    siruvar anaivarum raamane

    uzhaipaal vidiyai maatrum mannidhu
    uzhaipin nokkam podunalame
    tyagamum thavamum kavigal paatin
    karuvaai amaiyum maanbithu
    gangaiyai pole thooya gnanam
    jeeva nadiyena paaindidum
    sirumiyar ellam deviyin vadivam
    siruvar anaivarum raamane

    engal vaazkai eetram perave
    endrum geethaiyai voduvom
    ezhmaiyai neeka latchiya deepam
    idhayangalile yetruvom
    irudiyil engal vazhkaiyin vetkai
    iraivan thiruvadi neelale
    sirumiyar ellam deviyin vadivam
    siruvar anaivarum raamane
