Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 2 Text 46

yavan artha udapane
sarvatah samplutodake
tavan sarvesu vedesu
brahmanasya vijanatah

yavan--all that; arthah--is meant; uda-pane--in a well of water; sarvatah--in all respects; sampluta-udake--in a great reservoir of water; tavan--similarly; sarvesu--in all; vedesu--Vedic literatures; brahmanasya--of the man who knows the Supreme Brahman; vijanatah--who is in complete knowledge.


All purposes served by a small well can at once be served by a great reservoir of water. Similarly, all the purposes of the Vedas can be served to one who knows the purpose behind them.
