Tirumandiram – 54

The only path

Thiruneriyavadhu Chithachithandri
Peruneriyaya Piranai Ninaindu
Guruneriyam Siva Maneri Kudum
Oruneri Ondraga Vedantam Odume||

Vedanta is the end of all knowledge. It talks about something which is beyond knowing. That Vedanta says that the path of the Lord is neither Chit or Achit. His path is non-pareil.  Remembering the Lord, we will realise the great pathless path of Shiva, pointed out by the Guru. It is the one path that unites all paths that lead to the Lord. - SS

Tirumandiram - 53

Supports the Vedas

Irukkuruvam Ezhil Vedhathinulle
Urukkunar Vayunar Vedhathul Ongi
Verukkkuru Vagila Vedhiyar Sollung
Karukkuruvai Nindra Kannanumaame||

The Lord stands behind the beautiful Rig Veda as its essential song. He is the inspiring chant of the vedas by the priest as the pupil of the eye which witnesses all when the Vedas are chanted with devotion and love, the Lord is present completely as he is the essence of the very Vedas themselves. - SS
