Satyam or speaking the truth is the most important qualification of a Yogi. In Hitopadesa it says: "If truth and one thousand Ashwameta Yajnas (an elaborate Vedic ceremonial undertaken by kings to attain a son or sovereignty) are weighed in balance, truth will outweigh". In the Mahabharata it says: "The four Vedas on one side, well studied, together with all their Angas and Upangas, are far outweighed by truth on the other". Such is the importance of truth.
