Tirumandiram - 51

The way home

Vedathai Vitta Aramillai; Vedathin
Odhath Thagum Aram Ellam Uladharka
Vadhathai Vittu Mathignar Valamuttra
Vedathai Odhiye Vidu Pettravar.

We are lost in a forest and it is becoming dark. We need to find out our way back home fast. Someone comes around with a torch and we follow the path shown by him and reach fast. 
The Vedas or books of knowledge which are nothing but the breath of the Lord, is the ultimate guide in showing our way home. The Vedas contain the essence of all things that we need to necessarily do. The wise ones do not debate on this. Instead, they chant the Vedas and follow its path and reach their original home, the pure and unsullied self. - SS.
