Tirukkural-On Virtue-The Renunciation-Kural 346

Yaanenadhu ennum cerrukkuaruppaan vaanoarkku Uyarndha ulaham pukum


He who overcomes the pride of ego and possessions,Will directly attain Godliness.

'I' and 'mine' are persistent delusions, which a virtuous man who aims at entering the kingdom of heaven will have to firmly eschew.

'And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father or mother, or wife, or children, or lands for my name's sake, shall receive an hundred fold, and shall inherit everlasting life.'

(Matt. 19:29)

the message of the Gita (in 2,71) is directly relevant:

'That man who lives devoid of longing, abandoning all desires, without the sense of 'I' and 'mine' he attains peace'.
