SrI: SrImathE SatakOpAya nama: SrImathE rAmAnujAya nama: SrImath varavaramunayE nama:
yaḥ śāstra-vidhim utsṛjya
na sa siddhim avāpnoti
na sukhaṁ na parāṁ gatim
‘Whoso discarding Śāstra’s rubric, freely roams at will, he attains not to perfection, nor happiness nor Highest Goal.’
Śāstra = Vedas (= the Inspired knowledge of Revealed Religion)
Vidhi =Rubric= a Scriptural injunction.
Vedas are My Mandates. Whoso abandons them and drifts in the way his unlicensed will may lead, he will not attain to (1) siddhi = perfection = transmundane perfections; nor to (2) sukham = happiness of any kind (sublunary); never therefore to (3) Supreme Goal (the Acme of spiritual beatitude, joining God).
