SUPREME SACRIFICE OF PARAMAPURUSHA
IS THE
ESSENCE OF VEDAS
 

INTRODUCTION

 

          "VEDAA HI AMRITAAHA" --- Thus saith the Chandogya Upanishad ( 3:5:4 ), one of the important commentaries on Vedas.  It means "Vedas are immortal".  Hindus consider Vedas as the ESSENCE OF WORLDS (Ch.Up.2:23:2).  It is said in this text, "Prajapati ( Lord of Hosts ) brooded on the worlds.  From them, thus brooded upon, issued forth three-fold Vedas as their essence".  According to Vedas, the worlds may pass away but Vedas remain immortal.  The meaning of Vedas is :- 'VID' - to know, means, to know about ( WISDOM ) GOD.  Vedas always insist on ONE GOD ONLY, even though there are many names attributed for that One and the same DIVINE PERSON, GOD ALMIGHTY.

          The Vedas depict the GODHEAD - DIVINE PURUSHA in a more deeper spiritual sense of experience than what the Monotheists and Polytheists preach.  Prof. Max Muller called Vedas' view of GODHEAD as "HENOTHEISM" but failed to define the term, nor explained the total significance of the Vedic Theism.  Vedas stand on its principle "UNITY IN DIVERSITY".  That is why Vedas say: "EKAM SAT VIPRAAHABAHUDAA VADANTI" --- "ONE (SAT-) TRUTH EXISTS: THE WISE SPEAK AS MANY".  There is no equivalent word in English: THE WISE SPEAK AS MANY".  There is no equivalent word in English, identical with the Vedic principle of God-head, and hence Max Muller's HENOTHEISM is still in force in defining Vedic Theism.

          The Vedic religion has persistently withstood all the oppositions of the later religions throughout the ages of the Universe.  The Vedas are considered to be the most ancient Scriptures available so far, and are considered to be the most ancient Scriptures available so far, and are considered to be contemporary with the very Creator PRAJAPATI BRAHMA, because both BRAHMA and VEDAS are co-created.  It is said in Vedas and Puranas (epics) that BRAHMA came forth reciting Vedas.  BRAHMA, VEDAS, GAYATRI AND GOAT (LAMB) coexisted at the time of creation.  ( In fact the Sanskrit name for BRAHMA and the goat is the same, 'AJA' - meaning UNBORN).

          The earliest characteristic spiritual expression in Vedas and Vedic civilisation is "UNITY (ONE GOD - SPIRIT) IN MANY NAMES (FORMS) AND MANY IN ONE".  Henotheism is meant to cover this aspect of Vedic Principle.  The Henotheism resembles Monotheism as far as the Divinity point of Vedas are concerned, but it is like Polytheism as regards the gods and goddess phonomena.  But Henotheism is different from both, because of the Vedic concept of UNITY IN DIVERSITY - that means - The Governing Spirit of Almighty is ONE, through the forms are many.  It is added here that the Vedic deities are without forms and are the attributes of one and the same SUPREME BEING or PARAMA PURUSHA.  The mode of worship and Vedic hymns are same irrespective of the different deities.  That is why the concept of the Vedic Divinity is beyond the Max Muller's concept of Henotheism,

because (a) All the deities are co-related; and

             (b) All deities are identified as to the THE ONE SUPREME PURUSHA ( EKAM in neutral gender ).

          This Vedic concept of Theism should not be confused with the ADVAITA.  Advaita (of Adi Shankara) tries always to prove the unity of all entities including the nature.  According to them everything is because of ONE SPIRIT and that man can attain that state by adhering to strict renouncement of the world, SANYASAM.  According to Advaita, to strict renouncement of the world, SANYASAM.  According to Advaita, SANYASAM is the only way for MOKSHAM or REDEMPTION.  That means almost the whole humanity has to be devoid of the grace of God except these Sanyasis !  This is the reason why the Advaitists scorn at Bhaktiyoga which preaches that any man can win God by completely surrendering to Him and who loves Him with all his heart, strength, mind, soul and body (which is called PRAJAPATI).   Advaita is otherwise called as PRASANNA BOUDDHA MATAM (Refined Buddhism) by Sri. Ramanuja, the founder of Vishishta-Advaita.  In a way Vishishta-Advaita is the nearest term to describe the Vedic Concept of Divinity.  Many Vedic scholars neglect this concept as of recent origin.  In fact without naming the term, Veda Vyasa describes the concept of Vishishta-Advaita in his famous post-Vedic literary work, BRAHMA-SUTRA.

          Vedic deities do not combine both good and bad characters (powers) like polytheistic gods and goddessess.  All Vedic deities are too good and perfect, each representing a highest morality in the sight of the world.  No deity is deformed.  Thus in forms, (poetic) deities are many, but in SPIRIT they are One.  Max Muller called this Vedic Concept as HENOTHEISM.  Even though Sri. Ramanuja, followed the worship of idol NARAYANA, yet his concept of VISHISHTA-ADVAITA is nothing but what Vedas preach of God; EKAM SAT.  For him, that SAT is NARAYANA, THE SUPREME PURUSHA.  But for Adi Shankara, it is the feminine SHAKTI - closely resembling the Assyrian concept of Isha and Ishi.  This Shakti concept is later followed and promulgated by the later visionaries like Sri. Aurobindo, who started his spiritual journey from SUPREME PURUSHA NARAYANA but ended in SHAKTI CULT  by a worshipping KAALI.  Therefore the Revelation of SUPREME SACRIFICE OF SUPREME PURUSHA, which is the essence of the Vedas was blacked out to them, the Advaitists or Monists.

VEDAS ARE VOID OF IDOLATRY

          The Vedic deities are (Spirit) visions, but formless.  Their forms are described in Vedic poetry just to explain to the world about them.  But the subsequent generations made idols of deities.  But even then the mode of worship is the same.  The Vedic Ritual "YAJNA" is same for all deities.  The Vedas express their deities only in poetry and music but not in sculpture or plastic arts.  In sculpture, one deity is different from the other.  But in Vedas, the male Agni and Surya and the female Usha are considered as EKAM - ONE in the neuter gender.  Such unity are identification cannot be conceived in polytheistic visual arts.  Some of the image of Vedic poetry can't be reduced to definite forms, for example, VIRAAT PURUSHA, Suparna bird, Vrishabha (bull) meaning mobility, Varaaha (boar) meaning greatness.

          There are four types of Vedic Religious Ritual practices :-

(1)    Recitation (VEDA GHOSHAM)

(2)    Singing,

(3)    The Path of Knowledge, and

(4)    YAJNA (SACRIFICE), (Rig Veda. X.71:11).

VEDIC CODE  (DHARMA)

          The basis of the ancient code of the Vedas is the moral law with the spiritual discipline guiding the life.  This concept is called as DHARMA.  It is not what one believes or behaves, nor what the intellectuals conceive as their moral characters and spiritual status.  DHARMA is something different and unique from all other religious concepts of other religions of the world.  The nearest equivalent term in English for DHARMA may be CODE or PRINCIPLE.

          The DHARMA are believed to be existing even before Vedas as DHARMAN which means "ETERNAL LAW"; e.g., Vishnu is considered as holding the ETERNAL STATUTES (DHARMANI) - Rig. Veda. I.22:18; Agni is called as "The Head (Chief) of the ETERNAL LAWS: "DHYAKSHAM DHARMAANAM" - Rig. VIII.43:24.  Earth is considered to be held by DHARMAN - Atharva Veda.XII.1:17.

          "DHAARAYATI ITI DHARMAHA" :  It is so called as Dharma, for it upholds itself (e.g. Mahabharatam, Karna Parvam).  It is DHARMAN which upholds creation, as said in Karna Parvam of Mahabharatam.

          GAUTAMA (BUDDHA) coined the Pali word DHAMMA meaning eternal moral principles but without stressing on one's faith in God.  In his sermon of DHARMA CHAKRA PRAVARTANA at Sarnath (Bihar, India), meaning setting in motion THE WHEEL OF LAW (DHARMA), cessation of suffering and Eight-fold Path conquering all the former three truths.  His Eight-fold Path is:

(1)    Right View,

(2)    Right Aspiration,

(3)    Right Speech,

(4)    Right Deed,

(5)    Right Livelihood,

(6)    Right Effort,

(7)    Right Mind,

(8)    Right Concentration.

So for them there is nothing known as God.

The DHARMA of VEDAS is accepted as the foundation of Vedic religion, being the ideal form of code of conduct.  Its contents are totally accepted by all religious orders of India from traditions.  The Atharva Veda gives the earliest but comprehensive definition of DHARMAN - A.V.XII.1:1 :-

SATYAM BRHAD RTAM UGRAM DIKSHA TAPO

BRAHMA YAJNAH PRITHIVIM DHAARAYANTI.

          " (1) Truth, (2) The mighty, strict Eternal Order RTA, (3) Consecration (Diksha), (4) Austerity or Penance or Meditation (Tapas), (5) Vedic Prayer (Brahma) and (6) Sacrifice (Yajna) or Ritual - These uphold the Earth.

          These six principle form the Fundamentals of Vedic Religion.  The TRUTH is ONE (EKAM SAT); The Eternal Law is HIS WORD OR COMMAND  (RTA); (Rta also means Truth).  By consecration (DIKSHA) one attains His Path.  By true Tapas (Meditation) on Him (Parama Purusha or Supreme Person) one will find out the secret of His Existence.  By constant ceaseless prayers only, one can realise the Creator.  But above all by realising the SACRIFICE (Supreme Sacrifice) only, one draws blessings from the Supreme Purusha, THE ONE EXISTING AS SAT.  The most important principles of DHARMA are RTA and YAJNA, after TRUTH which is placed in first place of importance in Vedas.

SATYAM (TRUTH)

(BHAGAWAN SHRI. LAHARI KRISHNA)

          The word "SATYAM" is derived from the Sanskrit Root "SAT" means "Exists"; that means, IT CANNOT BE DENIED.  SAT + IYAM = SATYAM:   This exists.  This is the TRUMP OF VEDAS, which fully acknowledges the existence of the Supreme Divine Being which can't deny Itself.  In English it is just said as Truth.  What is Truth ?  They can't explain.  But Vedas clearly define what is Satyam, even though the subsequent generations lost the importance of This SATYAM, The Supreme Purusha who performed the VIRAT YAJNAM (The Great Sacrifice) in which He Himself offered to HIMSELF as the SACRIFICE.  HE IS SAT ( Purusha Sukta ).  This is TRUTH.

          The Vedas define SATYAM as the essence of Divinity:  A.V.VII.24:1 says SAVITA SATYADHARMA:  The Deity has truth as the LAW OF HIS BEING.  Rig Veda (I.1:5,29) describes the Deity as SATYAM (Truth).  Ultimately in Vedic Religion, SATYAM alone counts, which stands against all untruth.  Rig Veda (VIII.62:12) reminds to worship India, the Lord of Heaven who is Satya and not  the untrue (ANRTA).  Rig Vedas (X.85:1, A.V.XII.1:1) says that the Earth is upheld by Truth.  Yajurveda says: "SATYAM JINHVA" - "Truth quickens".  The Upanishat starts its prayer from "SATYAM VADISHYAAMI" I will speak Truth.  The National Emblem of Indian Government quotes the Upanishat Hymn: SATYAM EVA JAYATEY - TRUTH ALONE WINS .  But we, the Indians are ignorant of this Great Truth, viz: GOD HIMSELF, That Great Supreme Purusha, The Undeniable Person who died as Sacrifice before the Foundation of the world as FIRST SACRIFICE and rose again with the Power of Almighty.  This is the Truth.  The world may deny Him.  But He cannot deny Himself, and hence is called as SATYAM, Satyam (SATYAM) IS IMMORTAL, ETERNAL, BECAUSE HE IS GOD.

R T A (ORDER)

THE ETERNAL LAW

          The next essential principle of DHARMA after Truth is RTA, The Eternal Order or The Eternal Order or The Eternal Law.  Its meaning is not clear, but its opposite 'ANRTA' is used by ancient Vedas to describe disorder or chaos of the universe.  RTA is considered as co-existent with SATYAM in the beginning of Creation (or even before) out of Perfect Spiritual Order (Rig Veda.X.110:1).  According to Vedas, Truth upholds the Earth and RTAM the Heaven.  Therefore RTAM is the Heavenly Order.  The Vedic Deity SOMA (MOON) is considered as preacher of RTA, being made splendid by RTA.

          Rta includes justice, goodness (grace) and is great synonymous with Dharma.  It is severely opposed to evil, and hence is stern and fierce (Rig. IX.73:6 says that "The wicked tread not the path of RTA (Eternal Law).  BRHASPATI is invoked in Vedas as follows: (R.II.23:3)

"Having chased the wicked ones and darkness

Thou mountest Thy refulgent car of order (Rta)

The awful car, O Brhaspati ! that subdues the foe,

Slays the wicked, cleaves the stall and brings the light"

RTA as RTA:  The Term  RTA is also applied to Vedic Ritual and it signifies the orderly performance of the complicated ceremonial part of worship.  Thus the YAJNA (Rite of Sacrifice) also confirms RTA, The Eternal Order.  In remembrance of what happened in Heaven as per Eternal Law RTA, The Yajnas (Sacrifices) are performed on earth so far are the shadow of what really happened as per the Heavenly RTA - Order, before the foundation of the Universe.   The Cosmic Order RTA is considered to be ETERNAL and IMMORTAL while the ritual RTA of the world is expected to vary with time and is renewed to suit the human desires for change.  That is why all the Vedic Yajna rituals of offering animals and human sacrifices were stopped immediately after the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, to divert the attention of Vedic people from the Real Sacrifice (Jesus) which came to the world to show EXACTLY what happened before the Creation, when PARAMA PURUSHA was slain.  That is why the new RTA of Agnihotra, etc., came into importance replacing the Vedic Sacrifices like ASHVAMEDHAM (Sacrifice of horse), Ajamedham (sacrifices), thus fulfilling Vedic saying: NAVYO JAAYATAM RTAM - Let the new ritual grow: - Rig.I.105:15.

          RTA as FATE:  The concept of Rta is entirely different from the Greek concept of fate.  The Cosmic Rta Order should be translated into World Social Order for an ideal world society.  Unlike Greek Fate, Rta lies above divinity.  But according to Greek philosophers, Fate is the power which even the gods could not withstand, which is arbitrary and which foreordains the course of mortal life beyond one's capacity to alter it.  But RTA is not so; e.g. Markandeya changed his death into eternity; Bhishma could postpone his death at his will; Krishna made Sun and Moon to come together one day earlier before their appointed day of Amavasya, etc.  The Vedic Rta remains as Eternal Law and Eternal Justice.  In later generations, this concept led to the Theory of Karma, but in ancient Vedic says, it was not so.  The doctrine of Rebirth depending on the Theory of Karma appeared in the Vedic religion, only after the influence of Jainism, Buddhism and Greek Philosophy.

          The KARMA YOGA of Vedas is entirely different from the present-day concept of Karma Yoga.  A man can confidently follow the RTA in full faith to prevail against any disorder.  The existence of evil is recognised but Vedas confidently proclaim that we can prevail and win over the evil both within us and surrounding us.  Indra's opposite of RTA, proves the final victory and goodness and Law over evil and disorder.  The Vedic view of life is heroic.  Life is hard and evil is in the midst of us but victory is ours if only we are brave and follow RTA (Heavenly Eternal Order) with determination and grit (R.X. 53:8).

YAJNA (SACRIFICE or RITUAL)

          The Vedic rite of offering libation or oblation (Sacrifice) on the burning altar is called as YAJNA (SACRIFICE) - YAT JUHOTI YAT JAANAATI - This is offered to be burnt; and thus this is known.  The offering of Soma juice is the other ritual of divine offerings.  The ritual is one and the same for all deities.  There are different types of rituals of Yajna, viz,

(1) Agnihorta (The Domestic Sacrifice),

(2) The seasonal mass-scale sacrifices like horse-sacrifice, etc;,

The study of the four Vedas is called as Aparajnana, while the study of Upanishats as Para Jnaanam.  Apara means worldly whereas Para means heavenly.

          The Vedic Society is conspicuous of tolerance towards the opposition to its formal traditions of rituals, because the Vedic Society encouraged the freedom of thought and expression.  Also the later developed famous Bhakti Cult (Path of Devotion) stressing mainly on the Divine Grace, completely overshadowed the ritual part (Sacrifice) of Vedas.  The Bhagavad Gita explains this path of Devotion clearly - The Direct Experience of the Divine Purusha cannot be held by (just memorizing) Vedas, nor by Yajnas, nor by penance, nor by religious studies but only by Devotion (LOVE) on PARAMA PURUSHA (compare in this view with I Corinthians. Ch.13 of The New Testament).  But even the Vedas have propagated such views. e.g.

"No one by work (karma) attains Him,

Who works and strengthens ever more;

No, not by Yajnas (Na Yajnair) can One attain INDRA (Lord God)

Praised of all, resistless, valiant, bold in might "

-- Rig. VIII. 70:3   

         The institution of 'PANCHA YAJNA' - Five types of rituals of Sacrifices, enhanced the importance of the concept of rituals of sacrifices (Yajna).  These are:-

(1)  Agnihotra, the domestic rituals,

(2)  Brahma Yajna, the study and teaching of Vedas.

(3)  Nryajuna, ministering to the guests, the fellow human beings.

(4)  BhutaYajna, ministering to all the creations of God, including animals, and

(5)  Pitr Yajna, offering oblations to manes (departed fathers).

The Hindu Scholars tried to propagate the concept of Spirit of Sacrifice quoting from the Bhagavad Gita.  But the Bhagavad Gita is clear enough as crystal in giving importance to SACRIFICE, especially the SUPREME SACRIFICE.  Because this Supreme Sacrifice was beyond their human conception, they propagated their own doctrines about "Spirit of Sacrifice" and Path of self-less duties.  But actually Karma Yoga means, the Path of Action of Whom?  The Action taken by The Cosmic Purusha (AADI PURUSHA) SAT in that great Cosmic Sacrifice as mentioned in Rig Veda, Purusha Sukta (R.V.X).  A man will be glorified without death only if he believes and follows the Path of that Karma (Sacrifice of Aadi Purusha).   But for that, the world has to wait till the very same PURUSHA enters this world as a normal human being to lead us, His disciples to glory along with Him to Heaven.  In Brahma Yajna, The Supreme Reality Brahma is the Sacrificing fire, and He is the WORD as fuel, and He is the Sacrifice and also the Sacrificer.  Therefore YAJNA (Supreme Sacrifice) must be accepted as the PIVOT of the Universe.

          "Naayam loko 'sty ayajnasya kuto'nyah kuru-sattama" -

Bh. Gita.4:31:  "To the man who does not offer SACRIFICE, even this world is not happy; how, then, can the other world be happy ?".

The Vedas also talk about the YAJNA (SUPREME SACRIFICE) figuratively;

e.g., Yajurveda says that "Life prospers through Yajna (Supreme Sacrifice)".  Even the ritual of Yajna - The KARMA-KANDA - prospers through YAJNA --- "YAJNO YAJNENA KALPATAAM" - "MAY YAJNA (Ritual) prosper through YAJNA (SUPREME SACRIFICE)" - Yajur Veda. IX.21.

          The Hindus always spiritualize the concept of Yajna.  The Yajna emphasized the realistic elements of Vedic Religion.  Unlike the ascetic muni who is austere and silent, the Rishi (Sages) of Yajna expresses himself through poetic oration with music which is in contrast with the non-spiritual yogi's hard strivings in material spheres to master the world.

          But Karma-Kaanda, the Act of Sacrifice, YAJNA, has its own story to be spoken of.  The glorious lustre of blazing fire of altar, the sweet perfume of the sacrificed ghee (fat), the blades of grass (DHARBHAM), the meal offering of cooked material, the crushed Soma (Drink offering) and all the materials of Yajna had their own direct performing the sacrifice Yajna also behave in turn with music, and the mass-action in making the FINAL OFFERING (POORNA-AHUTI) produces an immediate appealing high spiritual sense.

          The Vedic Age delighted in forms and ceremonies.  People may ask:  Is Form necessary for worship ?  Does it have any relationship with the Spirit ?  The Rig Veda says: "ATMA PITUS TANUR VASA OJODA ABHYANJANAM" - R.VII.3:24.  "Food is soul; the apparel is the body; and the ointment is the giver of spiritual vigour".

          Thus the Six Principles of Vedas remain in the same order as in the beginning of the ages.  But only the ritual part of Yajna has caused much dissensions.  SHABDA BRAHMA, the Vedic Text is still being learnt orally by hundreds of people in our country (India).  The Western Orientalists have strenously published the authoritative Vedic Texts.  Consecration and Self dedication (Diksha & Tapas) made a direct impact on the minds of Western Oriental researchers.  The RTA (Order) of Vedas is still to be realized by the world.  (This (RTA) is the hidden mysterious Will of God or The Hidden Plan of God, hidden from the creation, but by which power the creation took place).  Finally the SATYA (Truth), the first Vedic Principle is an integrity for every moment of life, as SAT or Reality for those moments of exaltation (KOOTASTHAM).  Many leaders of spiritual thought in different ages asserted that GOD IS TRUTH, viz., Jesus, who said: I AM THE TRUTH, and Krishna who said: "I AM RTA".

          The Vedic ages with their intellectual adventures and spiritual power attempted to break away the barriers of caste system and to unite men through the ideals of harmony and order of justice and universal fellowship and that is why those sages were called as 'BHOOTAKRITAH' - World Fashioners (Atharva Veda - VI.133:4).  The essence of Vedas is progressive: "Go forward, Fear not, Fight", says the Vedic Spirit of Kshatra (R.I.80:3).

          The Vedas always conceive its movement as the progress on the path of Truth and Eternal Order (RTA) and self-dedication to a noble ideal of prayer and wisdom and of ritual and sacrifice.  Man should grow to the full stature of his being (spiritual) to live in broad, free world in the joy of the Spirit.  Thus the Atharva Veda laid down six principles of DHARMA in contemplating such a New World Order:

"Satyam Brihad Rtam Ugram Diksha Tapo,

Brahma Yajnah Prithvim Dhaarayanti" - A.V.XII.1:1

"Truth, the great stern Eternal Order, consecration, austerity prayer and ritual (SACRIFICE); these uphold The Earth".


B H A K T I   Y O G A

( P A T H    O F   D E V O T I O N )

          Love and devotion are the simplest modes of the religion, wherein The Divinity is contemplated as The Lord, most affectionately as Father, Mother, Brother, Friend, Husband, Guest, etc.  The worshipper prays to the Divine for help (UTI), benediction (Sham), Protection (Sharman), soccour (Avas), Mercy (Mula), Benevolence (Sumati), Love (Vena), etc.  God is the Saviour (THRAATA), The Merciful One (Mardita), Protector (Avija), etc.  He is the Most Beloved One (Jushta, Preshta).  Both He, the Lord as well as His worshippers are called as The Loving One (Vena).  Thus the Divinity is common and universal in BHAKTI YOGA.  The Vedic Poetry and Prayers are aroused by the Spirit of love and devotion.  Poetry and Prayers are aroused by the spirit of love and devotion.  In this context, it is very important to point out Bhakti Yoga is the light of the Supreme Sacrifice, the Essence of Vedas.

          The Supreme Purusha (Person) in the Vedas is addressed as HIRANYA GARBHA SHAAYEE -- Vishnu; - R.X.121:1 ( also in Y.V. & A.V. )

"Hiranyagarbhaha samavartataagre

 means

"What God shall we adore with ouroblation ?
Bhootasya jaatah pathireka aaseet;

 means

The Divine Being who existed in the Beginning,

Sa dadhaara Prithiveem dyaam utemo

 means

Who was the One Lord of Creation,

Kasmai Devaaya havishaa vidhema"

means

Who fixed and upholds this earth and sky".

          Here the Deity is termed as HIRANYAGARBHASHAAYEE.  According to Vedas, The Unseen Spirit, LORD before creation took the form of NARAYANA (Vishnu) as the Cosmic Womb, called HIRANYAGARBHA.  He is the One who created everything.  Before Creation, He Himself is in that Womb.  He is called as HIRANYAGARBHA, because, after AADI BALI (FIRST SACRIFICE).  He was inside the Cosmic Womb of God and then He rose up in the same form in glory ! ! !

          The Vedas clearly say how the FIRSTBORN NARAYANA (VISHNU) got this Cosmic Power of creation, protection and annihiliation of the whole universe (R.X.121:2).

"Ya aatmadaa baladaa yasya vishva

 means

"What God shall we adore with ouroblation?

upaasate prashisham yasya devaah

 means

Him who is the bestower of life and vigour,

Yasya chaaya amritham yasya mrityuh

 means

Whose commandments all cosmic forces obey;

kasmai devaaya havishaa vidhema".

means

Under whose shadow is DEATHLESSNESS, because of His death".

          This Vedic text clearly enunciates the Power of the FIRSTBORN NARAYANA (VISHNU) (The Self-Existing), The Root of all creation, obtained by His total surrender to The Supreme Command of The Supreme Spirit that possessed Him, to lay down His Life for His people, nay, for the sake of the whole universe.  By His death and by His Resurrection, before the foundation of the world, His very shadow brings IMMORTALITY to us, because we are the partakers of that Supreme Sacrifice.   Ironically, The Vedas also prophesy that gathering of all the people of the world is under HIM only, who comes as a GUEST (STRANGER) in this world.  THIS IS GOD HIMSELF.

Transliteration in English (from Sanskrit)

Translation in English

"Sametaa vishva ojasaa patim divo

 means

"Come together, ye all, with power of spirit, to the Lord of heaven,

Ya eka id bhoor atithir - janaanaam

 means

Who is only One, the GUEST of the people;

Sa poorvyo nootanam aajigeeshan

 means

He, the Ancient, desires to come to the new;

Tam vartaneer anu vaavrta eka ith"

-- Rig. VIII. 70:3

means

To Him all path-ways turn; Verily HE IS ONE'.

          The word SAMETAA is very important; as verb it means to gather or assemble; as noun or adjective, it means that the Lord of Heaven comes as Stranger along with His heavenly host.  It also means that the power of the whole universe is gathered or concentrated in Him who comes as a MAN, as a STRANGER in this world, with a desire to make everything new.  Please compare this with THE HOLY BIBLE - The Book of revelation. 3:14 to 22.  This Vishnu of Vedas is called called otherwise only as ALLAH (KHUDA).  Hindus affectionately call Him as "HARI", the destroyer of all evil.  By joining the two names of the Same God, we get "LAHARI".  The New Name of the Lord that has now come down as STRANGER - GUEST in this world.  That is why the Hebrews address God only as "L", the first letter of the New Name of God.  The Egyptian Haggar, the second wife of Abraham called Him as LAHAROI.  The exact equivalent word for HARI in Hebrew is YESHU (Yehhoa Shuah), which is changed in English as JESUS.

          God destroyed our death in AADI BALI and thus He was called as HARI.  the same God came down two thousand years ago as YESHU (JESUS) to doubly confirm and to reveal His right to redeem His people who have once again falled in sin in this world through Adam.  Now the same God has come down as a MAN, a stranger-guest of this world, but who is the Creator as well as the Appointed Heir of the whole Universe.  All the Vedic sages and devotees worship That Same Divine Purusha only.  He is called as POOVYA, The Ancient, The FIRSTBORN !

As Creator, He is our Father.  As FIRSTBORN, our Brother, He offered Himself as a SACRIFICE before the Foundation of the World.  As Friend, He came down again and reminded us of the Early Sacrifice.  Now He has come down as our GUEST, STRANGER.


THE RESURRECTION OF SUPREME SACRIFICE (AADI BALI):

 

"Sarvam samsinchya martyam devaah

          Purusham aavishan"  - A.V.XI.8:13

"When they had rused the MORTAL MAN (PURUSHA) complete, The gods entered into HIM ".

          The real meaning is that human FIRSTBORN was offered by the partakers of the AADI BALI (FIRST SACRIFICE) but they saw Him now as the DIVINE GLORIOUS PURUSHA being possessed by the FATHER OF SPIRITS, who has raised Him from death in this glorious Body,and all those who were created and took part in that Great Sacrifice found themselves inside that Glorious Body of DIVINE PURUSHA.  THIS IS THE MYSTERY OF VEDAS kept hidden by the very Author or Veda Himself to be revealed only by Him through His Spirit in these last days.   Who are the real partakers of that Great First Supreme Sacrifice ? -- Read Rig Veda. X.13:1.

"Shrnvanth vishve amrtasya purtaa

 Aa ye dhaamaani divyaani tasthuh"

"May all the sons of Immortality ( Amrtasya purtaah ) listen,

 all the possessors of celestial natures (divine powers) ".

Through this Aadi Bali only we were already created as possessors of Heaven, even before the foundation of the world.  Now as God has come down in flesh to rule this world as KING, we have also come down with Him, because We are His inseparable part as we are in Him totally even before the creation of Universe.

          In Jnana Yogam, the seeker prays God for DHI (Intelligence), MEDHA (Talent to achieve the intelligence), KRTU (Wisdom), DAKSHA (Ability or efficiency).  These are the principles of JYOTI (Light), VARCHAS is the light of Intellect.  The Man of Knowledge in Veda is called as VIPRA - Wise, or KAVI  ---  poet - philosopher, RISHI - sage, etc.

          GAYATRI MANTRAM:  The Path of Knowledge constitutes the essential part of Vedic Religion.  In this path, the seeker, the sage never accepts faith or belief as a substitute for his personal realization of the Highest Truth.  He always prays for Knowledge for mental and spiritual power which leads him to the Realization of Highest Truth, SATYAM.  This following Hymn (Mantra) called as GAYATRI MANTRAM by the name of the Metre GAYATRI in Vedic Music, is for this bright mental spiritual power (DHI) leading to the ENLIGHTENMENT and therefore this hymn is repeated thrice daily from the Vedic times throughout the Ages.

"Om Bhur Bhuvah svah Tat Savitur Varenyam Bhargo

Devasya Dhimahi; Dhiyo yo nah prachodayaat"

-- (Rig Veda. III.62:10 ; Samaveda. 1462; Yajurveda. (V.S.)36:3; 22:9; 30:2)

means

"We contemplate that adorable glory of the LORD "OM" who is in the earth, the sky, and in the heavens !  May He stimulate our mental power".

 

          (Om means the All-pervading Eternal Spirit, the Ultimate Reality).  Compare this Text with John.3:13 of the New Testament.  The LORD ADITYA, the other name of Vishnu is called as SON OF MAN by Jesus, because as KALKI, (Son of Man) Vishnu comes to rule this earth bodily as the Heir-Apparent.

          This Gayatri Mantram Japam is the prayer for the highest power that a man is capable of possessing - DHI - higher intelligence which brings him material and transcendental knowledge.  What the eye is to the body, DHI or intelligence is to the mind.  SAVITA means light (jn.1:3: "In Him was the LIFE and the LIFE was the LIGHT of men).  This Divinity - LIGHT - cannot be comprehended by the darkness.

ONE WORD ABOUT BRAHMAN :

Transliteration in English (from Sanskrit)  

Translation in English

"Ahameva svayam idam vadaami

      Jushtam devebhir uta maanushebhih

Yam Kaamaye tamtam ugram krnomi

     Tam brahmaanam tam rshim tam sumedham"

-- R.V. X.125:5

means

"I, verily, Myself say this

Which is welcome to the Shining Ones (Devas) and to men

Him whom I love I make mighty

I make him a Brhaman (wise man), a Rishi (seer), a man of talent"

This Vedic Text clears the doubts of Hindu fanatics as well as the critics of Hindus about the caste conflicts.  All that glitters is not gold; so also all the people born in the Brahmin caste are not all of them Brahmins, but only those chosen by the Almighty God and who are being inspired by Him and who are filled with His Spirit.  All such people, because of their acceptance of God as their Father, cannot die.  That is why for their sake, God died as AADI BALI (FIRST SACRIFICE).  They are called as AMRITA PUTRAAH - Sons of Immortality.  As God cannot die, they also cannot die.  No rishi of Vedic times is reported to have passed away.  All are considered to be in TAPOLOKA (World of Tapas, as in Vedas), one of the Seven Heavenly Planets.  In this context, it is worth mentioning BRAHMAM JAANAATI ITI BRAAHMANAHA -- Braahman is the one who knows BRAHMA, The Creator, The Almighty Spirit.  That means everyone who has realised The Creator is a BRAAHMAN.   Thus Jesus can also be called as Brahman as also Kalki as Brahmanottama, the most noble Brahmana, because He is the very SACHIDANANDA BRAHMA VIGRAHA, who has come in this mortal world as a human being.

Dharmam vasaanas tapasodatishthat

Tasmaadjaatam braahmanam brahma jevshtham

-- A.V. XI.5:5

means

"The BRAHMACHAARI (followers of Brahma, The Creator), born before BRAHMA, robed in libation, stood up through spiritual endeavour (tapas); From HIM arose sacred Wisdom, The Highest Brahman and of all the Shining Ones (Devas) with life that lasts for ever (Eternal Life) "
