Ved is Not in the Vedmantrs we recite
So many persons, who have read my article ‘Meditation: An eversuicidal mistake’ have written me via emails ‘if what I’ve written in that article is true, it obliterates the necessity of Ved altogether.’
This confusion has arisen because they think Ved is actually in the Vedmantrs we recite.
Well, yes and No.
What I’ve said, in the article in question, is that the Persian followed practically the principles codified in Ved, while we only recited Vedmantrs then, not followed the principles codified in them.
We were then in the status of ‘The wonder that was India’.
We were ruling the globe:
‘Bhūmi sapt sāgar mékhalā,
Ék bhūp Raghupati Kaushalā.’
‘The entire land, seven seas and mountains were governed by only one Administrator: The master of Raghu clan, having its capital in Kaushal country.’
We forgot how Lord Rām had prepared himself, his brothers, his friends and his followers to achieve this great goal.
He went with Brahmarshi Vishvāmitr to the forests where he had his āshram, in the age when most of the boys of his age enjoy the patronage of their parents.
He went to forests again to learn what the Brahmarshis and Maharshis of those days invented for humankind.
Most of us would have revolted against the great injustice Kaikéyī enforced on Lord Rām.
He never did it.
He knew what the unique knowledge was , he could get from those forests, where his greed crushed stepmother was sending him.
The Persians didn’t know Vedic Sanskr’t.
They didn’t recite Vedmantr in the form they were revealed.
They didn’t perform Stavans even.
But practically they practiced the principles codified in them.
That’s why they won over the so called Hindus who were arguing like Kauts whether the Vedmantrs had some meaning in them, or not.
