Dear JM sir,

“வணங்கியும் எட்டுத்திசையும் வினாவெழுப்பியும் தொண்டுசெய்தும் அறிந்துகொள்கஉண்மை காணும்ஞானிகளே உமக்கு ஞானத்தை அளிக்கவியலும்.  “

This statement explicate a sloka from Bhagavad Gita Chapter 4 (sloka 34) “tad viddhi praṇipātena paripraśhnena sevayā upadekṣhyanti te jñānaṁ jñāninas tattva-darśhinaḥ” (Understand that which is to be known by prostrating the wise, by asking proper questions, and by serving them. Those wise persons, who have the vision of the truth, will teach you this knowledge"

When reading such statement in Imaikanam 16, its remind me a saying that “ the role of a guru could be likened to a jeweler who cleans this gem (knowledge) now and again, presenting it afresh, in its original resplendence. The knowledge is kept perennialy alive from time to time.Excellent examination about action and wisdom from various varieties of student or (seeker)’s manobavam among Karna, Bheesma and Sikandi. Each explanation continuing the same subject of wisdom but were made more explicit from a person to person.  Great sir.

Thank you
