SPEAKING TRUTH

வாய்மை

  1. வாய்மை எனப்படுவது யாதுஎனின்? யாது ஒன்றும்

தீமை இலாத சொலல்.

Vaaymai enappaduvadhu yaadhu enin yaadhu onrum

Theemai ilaadha solal.

Veracity – what?

Those words which harm not others

Speak truth with forethought!

Wht is veracity? It is not speaking anything tht hurts others.             (291)

2. பொய்ம்மையும் வாய்மை இடத்த; புரைதீர்த்த

நன்மை பயக்கும் எனின்.

Poymaiyum vaaymaiidaththa;puraitheertha

Nanmai payakku enil.

Falsehood too also truth

If it does good to others

Sure go after truth!

Even falsehood will be deemed to be truth if the words spoken do good to others.                        (292)

  1. தன்நெஞ்சு அறிவது பொய்யற்க;பொய்த்தபின்

தன்நெஞ்சே தன்னைச் சுடும்.

Than nenju arivadhu poyyarkka; poyththyapin

Than nenjae thannaich chudum.

Truth indeed is pure

Knowingly speak not untruth

When done scorches sure!

Knowilngly let us not speak untruth-falsehood; if spoken, our conscience itself will scorch us.                      (293)

4. உள்ளத்தால் பொய்யாது ஒழுகின் உலகத்தார்

உள்ளத்துள் எல்லாம் உளன்.

ULLaththaal poyyaadhu ozugin ulakaththaar

ULLaththuL ellaam uLan.

Pure in heart and soul

Speaks truth, lives he in all hearts

Salutes the world whole!

The one, who is pure and speaks only truth, remains and lives in the hearts of all in the world.                            (294)

5 மனத்தொடு வாய்மை மொழியின் தவத்தொடு

தானம்செய் வாரின் தலை.

Manaththodu vaaymai moziyin thavaththotu

Thaanam seyvaarin thalai.

Sure greater than him

Who gives and leads life austere

When speaks truth with grit!

When a person speaks only truth, is indeed greater than the one who gives and leads an austere life.                (295)

6. பொய்யாமை அன்ன புகழ்இல்லை; எய்யாமை

எல்லா அறமும் தரும்.

Poyyaamai anna pugaz illai; eyyaamai

Ellaa aramum tharum.

Nothing brings more praise

Than speaking truth all in life

Makes Divine precise!

There is no greater praise in life than what one gets when he speaks only truth. That indeed makes himnoble and virtuous.             (296)

7. பொய்யாமை பொய்யாமை ஆற்றின் அறம் பிற

செய்யாமை செய்யாமை நன்று.

Poyyaamai poyyaamai aatrin aram pira

Seyyaamai seyyaamai nanru.

Sans lies, speaking truth

Virtue of virtues, brings all

Good and joy on earth!

When one follows the principle of never speaking untruth, there is no need for him to do other virtuous acts.                 (297)

8. புறம்தூய்மை நீரான் அமையும்; அகம் தூய்மை

வாய்மையால் காணப்படும்.

Puramthooymai neeraan amaiyum agam thooymai

Vaaymaiyaal kaaNappadum.

Water makes one clean

Truth makes his mind and soul pure

Truth one must be keen!

External cleanliness is achieved by taking bath in water; internal- mind and soul by speaking truth.           (298)

9. எல்லா விளக்கும் விளக்கல்ல; சான்றோர்க்குப்

பொய்யா விளக்கே விளக்கு.

Ellaa viLakkum viLakkalla; saandroarkkup

Poyyaa viLakkae viLakku.

All lights bring not light

For the noble, life of truth

Brings light that is bright!

All lights that dispel darkness are indeed not lights; for the noble light is really life of truth.                               (299)

10.யாம் மெய்யாக் கண்டவற்றுள் இல்லை எனைத்தொன்றும்

வாய்மையின் நல்ல பிற.

Yaam meyyaak kaNdavatruL illai enaththonrum

Vaaymaiyin nalla pira.

No virtue is great

As great as speaking truth

As seen on earth sweet!

In what we have seen indeed in life, there is no virtue greater than speaking truth.                                                      (300)
