Dr.V.K. Kanniappan (17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)
The world higher than the place of GODS
A person who is proud of ‘himself'
Does not own his body and physique for ever!
A person who thinks the wealth is ‘MINE',
The wealth will not come with him
While he breaths his last breath!
"A person who cuts the pride of ‘I' and ‘MINE'
Will enter the world higher than the place of GODS"
