Naaladiyaar – 118
Though cows are of different colours,
Milk they produce does not differ;
Virtue is of constant nature, like milk,
Though paths to it are different, like cows.
ஆ வேறு உருவின ஆயினும், ஆ பயந்த
பால் வேறு உருவின அல்லவாம்; பால்போல்
ஒருதன்மைத்து ஆகும் அறம்; நெறி, ஆபோல்,
Though cows may come in different colours, the milk they all produce is not of different colour. Similarly, virtue is unchanging. One may follow different paths to reach it, but what is right always remains right.
