Dharamu na dusara satya samānā | āgam nigam purān bakhānā ||
धरमु न दूसर सत्य समाना । आगम निगम पुरान बखाना ॥
There is no virtue equal to truthfulness: so declare the Agamas(Tantras), Vedas and Puranas.
Satyamul saba sukrut suhāe | beda purān bidit manu gāe ||
सत्यमूल सब सुकॄत सुहाए । बेद पुरान बिदित मनु गाए ॥
Veracity is the root of all noble virtues, as is well-known in the Vedas and Puranas and has been declared by Manu (the first law-giver of the world, the author Manusmruti).
