Vedas Overview

तस्माद्यज्ञात्सर्वेहुत: ऋचः सामानिजज्ञिरे । छन्दां सि जज्ञिरे तस्माद्य जुस्तस्मादजायत ।।

 

Meaning : Adorable God created the Rig Veda, Sam Veda, Atharva Veda and Yajur Veda.

The Vedas are not religious book. The Vedas are the books of knowledge. They are not religiously affiliated nor do they belong to a particular race or country. They are universally applicable to all human beings. Physically, the Vedas consists of four ancient books that contain spiritual, material, and societal knowledge. The knowledge within these books, however, was revealed when humankind first began life on the earth, and was passed down verbally generation after generation. Indians have protected the Vedas from the beginning. It is well known fact that Indian civilization was well advanced when Europeans were in the Stone Age and lived in caves by hunting. That was due to the Indians’ having access to the knowledge of the Vedas.

The name of each book in the Ve Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sam Veda, and Atharv Veda . The Veda name, number of mantras, seer that the Veda was revealed to and the subject matter of each Veda is depicted in the table above. While there are four separate Vedas, the knowledge within them is no four books have information that is linked to each other covering topics from God and Soul to and spiritual sciences. The format of the Vedas is poetical, and stanzas are called mantras. Only the verses in the actual Vedas are called mantras because they are called shruti, which means heard, as they were at first Passed down verbally from one generation to the next from other Sanskrit literature are called shalokas, sutras etc., not mantras. After being passed down phonically from the beginning of time, the Vedas were eventually Written down on palm leaves then on paper. System of memorizing the Vedas is so perfect that not a even a single syllable can be altered.
Mons Leon Delbos says: “There is a of Greece or Rome more previous than the Rig.Veda.”

Professor Max Muller says : “In the history of the world, the Vedas fill a gap which no literary work in any other language could fill.

When the Yajurved Veda was presented to Voltaire, he expressed his belief that “the Veda was the most precious gift for which the West had for ever been indebted to East.” In the words of Yajur Veda, this truth must be propagated to all:
“Yathemam vacham kalyanim avadani janebhyah”: YV-26.2

Meaning : Just as I speak (reveal) this auspicious holy Word of the Veda for all people (without any discrimination of high or low), so should you too communicate it to all people of the world whoever, whatever, wherever they be. The language of the Vedas is Vedic Sanskrit, which is different than the regular Sanskrit. Vedic Sanskrit and language is divine, therefore perfect and sacred; other works of Sanskrit are human creations.

Three Eternal EntIties
There are three eternal entities in the Vedas – God, Soul and Matter :
God : Vedas dictate ParmafmaGod according to its true self i.e. Conscious, Blissful, Formless, Unborn, Omnipresent, Omniscient, Omnipotent, Just, Kind, Sustainer, Nurturer, Holy, Infinite, Flawless, Eternal and the Creator of the universe.

Soul is a conscious entity. It is never born and never dies. It is known from the body it gets. It stays in the cycle of birth and death between human and non-human based on its deeds done in human life. All souls want happiness, joy and bliss. Real joy and bliss is possible only by attaining the Moksha. Human life’s main purpose is to get liberation from this cycle of birth and death. The liberation is called Moksha. In Moksha, soul is blissful and enjoys the company of All Blissful God.
Matter is an unconscious entity. It keeps on changing its shape. though it does not change in quantity. Wood, on burning, changes into carbon, moisture and gases. Vegetation grows from seeds with the help of earth, water, sun and air. Again, it changes it s shape when eaten and digested.

The Purpose of Creation
The purpose of creation is to provide tle opportunity for soul to enjoy and elevate to Moksha/liberation. Take for example a wooden table. There is a maker of the table, wood was used to make it and somebody will use it. So the maker is 1) efficient cause, 2) matter (wood) is material cause, and 3) user (person) is first cause. Similarly for creation 1) God, the all-knowing, all-pervading entity is the efficient cause, 2) the matter in its most primordial form is the material cause, 3) and the tiny individual conscious souls who are infinite in number are the first cause(s).

Vedas are Mother
स्तुया मया वरदा वेदमाता प्रचोदयन्तां पावमानी द्विजानाम ।
आयु: प्राणं प्रजां पशुं कीर्ति द्रविणं ब्रह्मवर्चसम ।
मह्यं दत्त्वा व्रजत ब्रह्मलोकम ।।AV-19.71.1

Meaning : Honored, celebrated and worshiped by me is Mother Knowledge, Veda, purifier, sanctifier and inspirer of the inspired and inspiring Dvijas, enlightened men of culture, education and piety, the Mother who, having g: n me good health, full age, prana, progeny, wealth, hor and fame, substantial power and stability, and the light and luster of Divinity. retires to Brahmaloka, the Eternal Mind of Brahma.

Harmony with Science
Vedas are in complete harmony with science. i.e. they dictate the chronological order of creation. First lands were formed, then the vegetation grew; then insects, birds, 4 legged animals and finally humans were created. In nature, the resources are provided as the need arise. The mother’s milk is produced as the child is being born.

Logical and Rational Approach
The Vedas condemn superstitions, idol worship, worshiping individuals, tombs, trees, stones etc. The fact is, nothing can go against natural laws. Llpasna (worship) is due only to the creator of the universe, who is All- pervading, Just, All-knowing, Eternal and formless. His real name is Om (ओ३म्).

Gurudom
Vedas do not prescribe to the present form of gurudom. The gurudum is that one must adopt someone as a guru and follow himher as the only savior. While a sincere guru (teacher) is must to teach and learn, there are many so-called gurus, who pretend to be the middlemen between their disciples and God; have their disciples worship and shower them with wealth. These gurus are fraud. No human can be an agent of God. God is our Father and Mother, and is accessible to all.

Seek Truth
Vedas emphatically dictate to seek truth, through reading, hstening, analyzing and examining. There is no room for blind faith in the Vedas. All individuals are responsible
for the decisions they make, consequences are not only limited to this life. but also the lives their after . Therefore critical, rational and scientific thinking and decision making is the key for real success.

In Vedas there are no unfounded statements about going to heaven or hell for believing or not believing in something. Rather, there is appeal for unity and working hand in hand for the good of all living beings.

Need for the Vedas
Nothing can sprout, without a root. The Vedas are the foundation of knowledge. Without knowledge, ignorance prevails. As a result there wouId be no civilization, no knowledge of right or wrong, and no advancement in thought

The most important Vedic knowledge for mankind is the knowledge of God and the soul. This knowledge is millions of time better than any other material knowledge, because only with the true spiritual knowledge can one make one’s journey more favorable and without it, one is bound to be doomed for ever. The irony is, not much emphasis is given in the day-to-day life on gaining this knowIedge.

This is very well depicted in the following story that nobody learns anything without being taught. There is a French film titled The Wild Child The Film opens with the statement “This story is authentic, it opens in 1798 in a French forest.” The story is about an 11-12 year old child who was found in a forest. He was just like an animal until they brought him to civilization and started teaching him human skills such as speaking, bathing, and clothing himself.
