Verse from the Veda about Preparing a Path to Heaven

Woman Giving Water to a Traveler

I think it is very important to question one’s beliefs, one’s faith. Because it is the very foundation people build their lives upon, examine the religion and religious teachings carefully, question everything. I think it is important to know the truth of something, that it is verifiable, and interestingly, whether you are a follower of any of the popular earthly religions today, or are non- religious, there will always be questions.

One great advantage in knowing the Holy Teaching of Grandfather is that one does not have to believe, because the answer to the most important questions is obvious and verifiable.

Understandably, the teaching of the Veda is to become a Buddha, a Messiah, a Magi, an Angira, a Shining One, and no one has attained such a state in thousands of years. But do not be disheartened, the Sacred Text has just recently been deciphered. Today, there is little more than a couple handfuls of people who have heard something about it. And for those who are interested, the text says that by following the teaching of kindness towards others and perfecting the breathing exercises and meditations, it will happen.

Here is a verse from the Veda, from the Creator of Everything, for preparing a path to be together with.

Yes, prepare the way by giving,

And anyone ought to be one to honor.

Verse from the Veda Giving Direction on Meditation

Buddha in Meditation

A Holy Being holding the breath while meditating

Of all the Sacred Text, I enjoy translating the Sutras the most. The Sanskrit word “Sutra” is a line, a cord, a rule, or a direction. Where the verses of the Rigveda are a call and response, a Sutra is the call. It is an appeal, a request, and it comes from the Supreme Spirit Pervading the Universe. It comes with the breath – the Holy Breath, and because the Sutras are short, they are powerful.

The Hebrew and Aramaic verses of the Bible and the Quran are Sutras. Many of the wise sayings of Indigenous People around the world are Sutras. Many of the mantras chanted and sung so religiously are Sutras. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the Shiva Sutras, and the Brahma Sutras are Sutras. Anyway, here is a verse from the Veda about meditation. Sit on a cushion or a chair and abandon the five senses. Do not think about the world – abandon it. Take a big breath and while holding the breath in, go inward.

Set on the tail,

And abandoning the five towards the light,

For the obscure to be unobscured.

Verse from the Veda about a Life of Happiness upon the Earth

Woman Giving Water to a Traveler

Woman Giving Water to a Traveler

Happiness is a cause of offering libations to people,

And for the endeavor,

Water and the Divine come like a river from the Ocean of Delight.

 

To be powerful giving to others is beneficial and a benefit to be happy,

And to be attentive to the Holy Wisdom of Grandfather,

To be together with the Heavenly Light and delighted to be for all living beings.

Verse from the Veda about the Sacred Temple

Strawberry Fields Memorial in New York City

In 1985, New York City dedicated an area of Central Park directly across from the Dakota as Strawberry Fields, where Lennon had frequently walked. In a symbolic show of unity, countries from around the world donated trees and the city of Naples, Italy, donated the Imagine mosaic centerpiece.

Just over thirty-five years ago, on December 10, 1980, John Lennon was murdered by Mark Chapman. On the fateful evening, Chapman shot at Lennon five times, and then calmly took off his coat and hat and sat down and waited for the police to arrive. In his hand was a paperback book of J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. In the book, he had written, “This is my statement” and signed it “Holden Caulfield.”

At the time, John Lennon was living in the United States and was an extremely important figure in the antiwar movement. There were many attempts by the Nixon administration to have him deported, and since that was not successful… there are speculations. One speculation is the Chapman was like a robot, psychologically programmed to kill Lennon.

He penned many popular songs during his years with Yoko Ono and the Beatles. One of his most popular songs is called Imagine, and the song asks you to imagine a world where everyone lives in peace. It happened in the past, many thousands of years ago, but it happened, and it can happen again. It is something to imagine… a great place to begin for bringing it into reality.

The message of peace is important, but there are issues as well. Here is the beginning of the song.

Imagine there’s no heaven – It’s easy if you try – No hell below us – Above us only sky

It is marvelous that people have the ability to imagine, but important to understand the reality we live in. Brahma, the Creator, separated into two parts to create the universe: male and female, heaven and earth, up and down, and so on. Since Brahma separated into heaven and earth, there is no hell. Even if you live in a safe place, you can easily find images of places in ruin, and read horrible stories from people in the many war ravaged areas of the world today. If you want to find hell, there it is.

All the visible universe is considered as the earth and heaven is all around. Many people searching for heaven like to look up – nothing wrong with that, but do not forget to look around. Heaven is all around you, all you need to do is look between the objects. See, it’s easy if you try.

Here is a verse from the Veda about the Sacred Temple.

The wind is conveyed to you from the Temple of Space,

And is a Sacred Place beyond suffering.

Verse from the Veda about the Heavenly Breath

Heaven and Earth Yantra

A post ago, the Rgvedaschool posted a post, and because of the importance of it, I am going to repost it here. The Rg, the Sacred Verse of the Divine Absolute, states, “reality is split, singular and absolute.”

Every human being, every land, sea, and air creature, every tree, every flower and blade of grass is a singular, and superseding that is Brahma. Brahma, according to the Sanskrit Dictionary, is the self-existent spirit, the absolute, and the Divine Absolute.

Another name for the Divine Absolute is One, because the Divine One encompasses everything. To form the universe, the Absolute separates into two parts, male and female, God and Goddess, Heaven and Earth, inhalation and exhalation, and so on, yet remains unchanged.

Your life and the life of all are contingent upon the Holy Breath. In the Veda, the Sacred Knowledge, living beings are referred to as movers, because that is a determination of the living. The Holy Breath is forever, death and stillness comes about because movers become too weak to breathe.

The breath comes to all for life, and when thanking the Creator, the affectionate term of Grandfather can be used. Yes, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, is our Divine Grandfather. The Heaven and Earth Yantra is posted above, and it illustrates our earthly and heavenly connections.

Here is a verse from the Veda about the Heavenly Breath.

The wisdom and the breath for a mover is protecting,

and to hurt,

to be away from is appropriate.

Verse from the Veda about the Heavenly and Earthly Breath

"The Sermon on the Mount" A painting by Carl Heinrich Bloch, 1890

“The Sermon on the Mount”
A painting by Carl Heinrich Bloch, 1890

According to the latest statistics, people in the United States are becoming less and less religious. Although young adults attend church, pray, and believe in God less than adults, both groups have seen a decline. It still appears that about ninety percent of older adults believe in God, but interestingly, only sixty-three percent are absolutely certain God exists.

It is shocking that the existence of God is questioned when it is so obvious. The ancient spiritual texts of the world are uniform in saying that the breath is God. To create the universe, the Creator separated into two parts, male and female, and just as, the breath is two. The God or Heavenly Breath is inhaled by all living creatures, and the exhaled breath is called the Goddess or Earthly Breath. Both are necessary for life.

The Heavenly Breath comes to all living beings, and the Heavenly One says every creature has the same right to happiness, and brings the Holy Breath and the sunshine to all to do so. So that all our brothers and sisters can live in peace, the Supreme Being says, “Do not kill any living creature.” It is a simple message, but hard to follow, and now-a-days in this mixed up world, there are many so-called religious groups killing in the name of God. To top it off, there are many on the other side using religion as a basis to kill the killers. Yes, and when you get a little away from it, you can see that there is no difference in the groups.

Here is a verse from the Veda about the Heavenly Breath.

Heaven calls on from the state above for the endeavor to obtain, and the place frequented by all is away from to go towards the despondent with a smile as the Protector and approaching with prayers.

Verse from the Veda Correctly Translated from Sanskrit

The Endless Knot

The Endless Knot

Today, upon the earth are many religions and spiritual paths for people to follow. During the last Golden Age, there was only one religion, the religion of Supreme Being. That was thousands of years ago, and during the ensuing years, the one Holy Path has split into many. For the most part, the religions of today are man-made, fabricated, with the religious principals based upon a very poor translation of the Holy Texts. Please see the section on this site called Poor Translations Lead to Misunderstanding. This is an extremely important issue and not one to be overlooked when reading the ancient spiritual texts translated into English, Spanish, German, or whatever.

When I say the religions are man-made, I mean that the religions are a concoction of men. Women are marginalized. In the Holy Religion of the Supreme Being there is no segregation, all beings are equal. It does not matter about the gender, skin color, sexual preference, and so on, and that is the way to be in line with the Holy Text.

Here is a verse from the Veda, written in Sanskrit, but correctly translated into English.

Gone is the vehement desire to roar aloud with people and offer, perhaps, to care for the disturbed.

Verse from the Veda Lamenting the Kaliyuga, the Age of Darkness

Kali - The white teeth of Kali represent conscience and the pressing red tongue represents greed.

Kali – The white teeth of Kali represent conscience and the pressing red tongue represents greed.

The 26,000-year cycle (where the sun appears to slowly regress 360 degrees through the twelve traditional constellations of the zodiac) is also separated into four Yugas, or ages. The four ages create a wave pattern where intelligence, spirituality, perception, and such, rise and fall. The wave is the highest during a Golden Age, and the last Golden Age began around 16,000 BC and ended around 7,000 BC. During the Third Age of Tretayuga (that ended about 3,000 BC), intelligence and such begins to fall. It continues to decline during the Second Age of Dvaparayuga, and reaches its lowest point during the Dark Age of the World, the Kaliyuga. The Kaliyuga began around 700 BC and ended around 1700, and we are now in the early days of the Second Age, but now, we are rising.

The word “Kali” in Sanskrit means the “losing die of a dice, the side marked with one dot, the Age of Vice, Discord, and Quarrel.” It was an unlucky period to be alive, but things have turned around. We are now on the upswing, so look for better things in the future. In the Sanskrit language, “Dva” means two, and “Para” means better than. We are now enjoying the early phase of Dvaparayuga, and it will be better.

During the Dark Age, there was no Buddha, Shining One, Messiah, Magi, Savior, and so on, because a hallmark of the Enlightened State is to be shining with light, and no one has been able to do that in a very long time. It is said that the Rigveda was written down to preserve it through the Dark Age, and preserve it it did, and the Sacred Knowledge to be glorious is being revealed again.

Yes, lament the Age of Vice and Deterioration for those, but walk with a name of Buddha and the happiness of avoiding.
