Plough with truth. Plant the seed of desire for knowledge. Weed out falsehood. Irrigate the mind with the water of patiences. Supervise your work by introspection and self-analysis. Build the fence of yama and niyama. You will soon attain Sivananda or eternal bliss of Siva. –Tirumurai, Saint Appar
He who has got a clear grasp of the astrological science inclusive of the mathematical portion as if it were spread before his eyes in the world and engraved in his intellect and imbedded in his heart, the predictions made by him will never prove ineffective.– Brihat Samhita, 2.15
