Nothing Besides Vedas Shun Logic Tamil Thirumandhiram


The misinformation that Tamil is against Vedas and that Vedas were imposed on the Tamils, especially by Brahmins is nailed out right by Thirumoolar in His Thirumandhiram which is over 3000 years old. This text of three thousand verses on Self Realization forms the basis of Saiva Siddhantha, a School of Thought in Tamil Traditions, which places Siva as Supreme Deity. The text Thirumandhiram explains how Yoga is to be practiced and it focuses on Vaasi Yoga, the forerunner of Patanjali’s Ashtanga yoga. In a series of verses in the beginning of the Work, Thirumandhiram talks about Vedas. I am providing one verse which states hoe Vedas are final word in Righteousness.(there is no equivalent word in English for Tamil Word Aram , அறம் in English just as there is no equivalent word for the Sanskrit word Dharm in English. )

Thirumandhiram says

‘There is nothing that is beyond Vedas for Righteousness. All that can be classified and followed as Dharm, அறம் is found in Vedas. The Discerning shunned Logic, followed/ practiced Vedas Realised Self/ Attained Moksha, வீடு. ‘

வேதத்தை விட்ட அறம் இல்லை வேதத்தின்
ஓதத் தகும்அறம் எல்லாம் உள தர்க்க
வாதத்தை விட்டு மதிஞர் வளமுற்ற
வேதத்தை ஓதியே வீடு பெற்றார்களே. 1
     வேதத்தை ஓதி வீடு பெற்றனர்! வேதத்தில் நாம் ஓதத்தக்க நீதிகள் எல்லாம் உள்ளன. எனவே தர்க்கவாதத்தை விட்டு வேதத்தை ஓதி அனுபூதி மான்கள் முக்தி பெற வேண்டும். https://www-chennailibrary-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.chennailibrary.com/saiva/thirumanthiram.html?amp_js_v=a6&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQKKAFQArABIIACAw%3D%3D#aoh=16253053224516&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From%20%251%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.chennailibrary.com%2Fsaiva%2Fthirumanthiram.html
