Abstract

Sangam literary texts have praised many Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharvana Vedas. The four Vedas speak of the praise of God, the sacrificial rites, the mantras of veneration, witchcraft, and mantras for controlling all that man fears in practical life. Aiṅkuṟunūṟu, kuṟuntokai, patiṟṟuppattu, paripāṭal, kalittokai, akanāṉūṟu are explored. Ancient Tamil Nadu accepted the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharvana Vedas with great respect. This article examines the Sangam literature as a definitive proof of the greatness of following the divine morality.
