Are We Intelligent Beings?

Prayer of the Day

Prayer from Thiruvarutpayan (திருவருட்பயன்) 


உயிரவை நிலை

பொறியின்றி ஒன்றும் புணராதே புந்திக்கு
அறிவென்ற பேர் நன்றற.    15

Song as Romanized text


uyiravai n-ilai

poRiyinRi onRum puNarAthE pun-thikku
aRivenRa pEr n-anRaRa.    15

Meaning of the Prayer Song:

 Without the instruments (eye etc.) it cannot realize!
How misappropriate it is to call the intellect as intelligent!!


1. We have our intellect. However it is not a form
of pure wisdom. Our intellect is only capable realizing
what it is exposed to. (Compare this with the intellect
of God that is omniscient.)
   Not just that, unless the instruments like eye, ear,
tongue, body etc take the signals to it, it does not
realize. Having such a limited intellect, calling ourselves
as the intelligent beings - is a big joke!
