accept truth from wherever it comes

युक्तमुक्तम् तु गृह्णीयात् बालादपि विचक्षणः।
रवेरविषयं वस्तु किं न दीप प्रकाशयेत्॥
(॥बालादप्यर्थजातं शृणुयात्॥ -- चाणक्यसूत्रं १६९)
yuktamuktam tu gṛhṇīyāt bālādapi vicakṣaṇaḥ|
raveraviṣayaṁ vastu kiṁ na dīpa prakāśayet||
(||bālādapyarthajātaṁ śṛṇuyāt|| -- cāṇakyasūtraṁ 169)
യുക്തമുക്തം തു ഗൃഹ്നീയാത് ബാലാദപി വിചക്ഷണ:
രവെരവിഷയം വസ്തു കിം ന ദീപ പ്രകാശയെത്

A man with intelligence should duly consider even the suggestions made by a small boy, if such  views are appropriate.  The powerful sun lights up the whole world during the day but there is night and also there are dark shadows even during the day and a small wick of a lamp can light up and reveal things in such conditions while the mighty sun may be helpless in doing that.
The universal acceptance of wisdom without getting concerned overly for the source thereof is the hallmark of a prudent person.

त्यजन्तु बान्धवाः सर्वे निन्दन्तु गुरवो जनाःI
तदापि परमानन्दो गोविन्दो मम जीवनंII
let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
