Grief destroys one’s courage. It destroys one’s learning. It destroys one’s everything. There is no enemy greater than grief. [Context: These are the words of Kausalya.

But as the sea is the final resting place for all types of streams, You are the only reaching place for all people whichever path, straight or zigzag, they may accept.

It is similar to his seeing due to illusion, during the state of sleep, that the one real fact appears as many different truths, and he realizes, when he wakes up and sees the reality, that he is really the one and only one soul. Salutation to the God facing the south, who is the greatest teacher.
