Mantra to Ponder

HOLD ON TO TRUTHFULNESS

Truthfulness promotes stability in the spheres of our social, economic and family life. Fear and suspicious would mark our days if we move away from truthfulness. A booming economy will be ruined if honesty disappears from the transactions. Love between members of a family is nurtured through truthfulness. The first six commandments in a famous portion of Yajurveda use the words, “na pramaditavyam” that imply: do not slip in these matters but hold on to them!

Hold on to truthfulness!

 satyān-na pramaditavyam

    Dear friend,
    You asked: Please let me know the verbal root of the word pramaditavyam…
    Our answer: the verbal root is “mad” as found in the nouns pramaada, unmaada etc or as found in adjectives matta, unmatta, pramatta etc.
