' BY THE DAILY STUDY OF THE VEDAS,
QUENCH YOUR THIRST FOR DIVINE KNOWLEDGE '
May the learned, nourish their intellect,
As a deity, crystal and perfect !
By the spiritual Vedic feed
Plucked from studies, daily indeed !!
As a thirsty desirous, of quenching thirst,
Digs a well by deep thrust !
So a learned, thirsty of wisdom,
Quenches his thirst, by Vedic wisdom !!
By a daily study of Vedas Divine
Intoxicated by Heavenly wine !
He sings the Vedic songs sublime,
Soaring high, with melodious rhyme !!
~ Rig Veda 1.88.4
