No religions have ever monopolized “the great Vedas’. Vedas depicted clearly ‘Vasudaiva Kutumbakam’, which means ‘whole earth is a family’ and ‘Sarve Jana sukhino bhavantu’ which means ‘May all humans live happily’. In it, there exists no pointing up of cast, creed or religion. It’s meant to the mankind as a whole. Moreover, it is said that ‘Janma Jaat Shudra Sarve, Karmenu Brahman Bhavati,’which means every one by birth is inferior and will be superior only by his karmas or deeds. Be proud as an Indian, as the Vedas are our ancestral contribution to mankind, whose origin can be traced back to 1500 BC.
The incarnation of knowledge of Vedas inculcates all the forms ranging from the sacred to the secular. The punch line of the Vedas lies in the authenticity of the thoughts and the truths sketched on it. It is practically applicable at all times yet and in future too. The truth always existed and Vedas are only a revelation of it to the mankind as a knowledge transfer. The knowledge conveyed the Vedas are everlasting and so does it possess an eternal value. It’s the knowledge discovered by various knowledgeable people from time to time in accordance with the needs. This knowledge had already been there, is there and will be there. It’s the eternity of it, which brought in a supreme scope for it. In the words of Swami Vivekananda, “by the Vedas no books are meant. They mean the accumulated treasury of spiritual laws discovered by different persons in different times.”
The Authors of the Vedas are still unknown and the Vedic tradition focuses mainly on the knowledgeable contents. The cosmic mind is not universal. If it was in every one, each of us can make contributions to Vedas. But as it was not possible for everyone to achieve a cosmic state, only those within that state made contributions, which were compiled as the Vedas. In ancient days it was transmitted orally from generation to generation, when finally a stage reached, a written form of Vedic knowledge was incarnated. Vedas are a compiled form of four Vedas namely Rig- Veda, Sama- Veda, Yajur-Veda and Atharva-Veda. Among all these Rig-Veda procures an admirable pole.
The oldest and the superior among Vedas are Rig-Veda. These treasured insightful contents were conserved and were transferred for generations and was preserved in the form of manuscripts. Thirty manuscripts of Rig-Veda were added to UNESCO’s heritage list. ‘Memory of the World Register’ coordinated by UNESCO, accredited the manuscripts of Rig-Veda, preserved in India by Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, Pune, after an international meeting of the advisory committee of UNESCO in Pretoria, South Africa, 2007. For overruling any appeal over accrediting of Vedas would pole to the patronizing of any specific religion, a professional UNESCO team visited various parts of India and made a thorough study over it. They were of the opinion that “Be a Bengali fisherman or Tamilian farmer, his spiritual view in some way or the other was profoundly influenced by the scriptures of the Vedas. So he uttered it in his own way.” This was the basic rule of influence of the Vedas on Indians. Beyond the cast and regions, its thoughts are flying off and spreading its wings over to embrace all the time when it is applied in.
