Verse from the Veda for Acting in a Spiritual Way

Manuscript of the Bardo Thodol. Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State

Manuscript of the Bardo Thodol. Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State

Quite often, when a person dies in this country, the United States, I hear that they are now in a better place. I frequently hear that if the person was of the Christian faith but never for a person of another religion. I also do not hear it for someone who carried out a suicide bombing or some other horrible act, but after death, all will attain the same place.

A person lives and dies, and upon their death, the body is usually buried or cremated. They do not go to heaven and spend eternity singing hymns, or writhe in agony in a fictitious place called hell. They are dead and in a state of nothingness. They have no sense of taste or touch. They see, hear, and know nothing for all of that was connected to the body, which is gone.

Who knows how long a being remains in an empty state, but there is little reason for it to be very long. According to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the Bardo Thodol – Liberation Through Hearing During the Intermediate State, the maximum time is forty-nine days. I have never translated a verse from the Rigveda that gives the time, but there is little reason for it to be very long.

Nothing happens in the death state, which everyone can confirm. Everyone living today has lived and died countless times, and knows little or nothing about it. Some information can be retrieved through Past Life Regression and such, but most of a person’s past lives are gone – the Veda says it is like a bubble on liquids.

Unless a person has attained a state of a Buddha where one has merged with the Supreme Being, a person will be reborn upon the earth. Those who have lived a spiritual life of non-violence and caring for others will be reborn in a safe place to caring parents and those who have faltered will not. There are many places upon the earth today where food and water is scarce, and it is dangerous. Everyone is given a choice upon the earth, yes, and the hope is that you will be one of the lucky ones.

Here is a verse from the Veda.

All people violate the Holy Law with imperfections every day,

and just as the action, the person is blemished.

Verse from the Veda for Those Who Have Attempted a Translation

An oil painting by William Turner in 1842 called Snow Storm - Steam-Boat off a Harbour's Mouth

An oil painting by William Turner in 1842 called Snow Storm – Steam-Boat off a Harbour’s Mouth

Over the last few years, we have seen the publication of four new translations of the Rigveda, and they have these two things in common; they are pricey and have little advantage over the oldest English translations by Griffith and Wilson that you can download free on the internet. That option is available, but if you are interested in what the Rigveda actually says, you will only find that here at the Rgvedaschool. Here is a list of the four new publications to avoid.

The three-volume set edited and translated by Stephanie W. Jamison and Joel P. Brereton was published by South Asia Research and Oxford University Press in May of 2014 and costs a bit more than $400. Stephanie W. Jamison is Professor of Asian Languages and Cultures and of Indo-European Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, and Joel P. Brereton is Associate Professor of Asian Studies at the University of Texas, Austin, but neither has any expertise in translating the ancient Sanskrit verses of the Rigveda.

The Complete Rig Veda by R.L.Kashyap was published by SAKSHI in January 2009, and appears in 12 Volumes (and includes the Sanskrit Text, English Translation and Explanation). Mr. Kashyap is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Emeritus at Purdue University, USA. He is also the director of the Sri Aurobindo Kapali Sastry Institute of Vedic Culture, so understandably, his English translations are a bit similar to those of Sri Aurobindo, metaphysical, psychological, but far from an accurate rendition of the true teaching of the Veda.

The Four Vedas: Mantras in Sanskrit with Transliteration and English Translation is by Swami Satya Prakash Saraswati and Satyakam Vidyalankar. It was published in January of 2011, and is a set of 22 Volumes costing about $300. In this, you will find similarities to the work of Swami Dayananda Saraswati, a favorite of mine along with Sri Aurobindo until I discovered how to translate the Divine Texts of the Rigveda. While this translation might clear up some misconceptions of the Sacred Text, the translation as a whole is poor.

The Rig Veda Samhita, Modern English Translation is by Prasanna Chandra Gautam. It is published in four volumes by Bharativa Vidya Bhavan, Mumbai, India and cost about $225. The publisher states that, “this is the first time the whole of the Rig Veda Samhita has been translated in English directly from the Sanskrit Mantras, with each Mantra having first been interpreted by a group of six scholars of distinction. According to the author, there is no similar work, apart from the St. James Bible…” What the author does not know is that the translation of the King James Bible is just as poor as this work, neither of which advances the true teaching of Our Father in Heaven or Mother Goddess.

All the new translations of the Rigveda clarify the Sacred Teaching just about as much as the 1842 painting by William Turner called Snow Storm – Steam-Boat off a Harbour’s Mouth. But fortunately, if you are able to read this then you are on the site that advances the Sacred Teaching of the Veda. Please read the many posts and pages of the site, and think about them. I think that if you give it a thorough investigation, you will not find any holes in the philosophy – you will find the doctrine highly probable.

Here is a verse from the Veda, and the best of luck to all upon the earth.

The Immortal dwells within mortals,

for a mortal to be powerful,

and go beyond to be immortal.

Verse from the Veda, the Sacred Knowledge, to Know

Monk with Scroll

In the last post, I gave a transliteration of the Sacred Text of Heavenly Father in Hebrew to Roman characters. It was a verse from the Old Testament of the Bible, Chapter 20, and Verse 13 of Leviticus, and here it is again.

wə·’îš ’ă·šer yiš·kaḇ ’eṯ- zā·ḵār miš·kə·ḇê ’iš·šāh tō·w·‘ê·ḇāh ‘ā·śū šə·nê·hem; mō·wṯ yū·mā·ṯū də·mê·hem bām

The common translation of the verse did not appear, but appears in the many versions of the Bible, such as the Wycliffe’s Bible, the King James Bible, God’s Word Translation, English Revised Version, Douay-Rheims Bible, and so on. All the translations of the verses are inaccurate, blasphemous, and far removed from the Holy Words of Father in Heaven. I know that because I have translated many verses from the Bible, Rigveda, Quran, Bhagavad Gita, Pali Texts, Yoga Sutras, Brahma Sutras, Shiva Sutras, and on and on, and when you accurately translate any of the ancient spiritual texts, all transmit a consistent message of peace and kindness to all.

Since most people have never taken the time to translate the ancient texts, you might wonder how you can know what they actually say, but think about it. How would the Creator want you to act? You can discover the God of Every Living Creature in the living portion of the breath, and it comes with love to every creature of land, water, and air. God does not discriminate, we are all God’s Children – one big family upon the earth, and the teaching is to be kind and helpful to all.

In the previous post, I stated that all the books deemed holy upon the earth should be burnt. To be clear, the Holy Text is composed in many ancient languages, but the translation of those texts into English, Italian, German, French, or whatever, should be burned because they lead a person down the wrong path.

Here is a verse from the Holy Knowledge, spoken upon the earth a long time ago by Heavenly Father.

With compassion the Holy One rises in a mover and to AH to lead home, for giving and tranquility I am powerful and speedy approaching for fulfillment and a song, a virtue to be friendly as the air you carry knows.

By the way, you can discover the Holy Text composed in Hebrew and Aramaic at Biblehub.

Verse from the Veda to Consider

Vyasa - Believed to have scribed the Rigveda around 3,000 BC.

Vyasa – Believed to have scribed the Rigveda around 3,000 BC.

The other day in Tando Adam, Pakistan, a man was arrested for selling shoes carrying the Sanskrit syllable “Om” which means “yes” or “so be it.” For some reason, the syllable is sacred to Hindus, and the Hindu community in the area wants the shopkeeper punished.

The blasphemy laws in Pakistan make it a crime to insult any religion, and if convicted, the man could face ten years in prison. Such things illustrate a problem with many religions upon the earth today, especially since they lead away from God and not towards.

Upon the earth are many religions based upon the word of man, yes, man, not woman, and definitely not the Word of God. All of the books deemed holy upon the earth, such as the Bible, Quran, Bhagavad Gītā, Pali Texts, and so on, should be burned because the translation of those texts from Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, Sanskrit, Pali, and so on, are offensive to the Holy Teaching of Heavenly Father and Mother.

Last week a Christian minister applauded the killing of fifty people in a gay nightclub in Orlando and sited a verse from the Bible as justification. The verse is from the Old Testament of the Bible, Chapter 20, and Verse 13 of Leviticus. Here is a transliteration of the Hebrew verse to Roman characters if you want to translate it for yourself.

wə·’îš ’ă·šer yiš·kaḇ ’eṯ- zā·ḵār miš·kə·ḇê ’iš·šāh tō·w·‘ê·ḇāh ‘ā·śū šə·nê·hem; mō·wṯ yū·mā·ṯū də·mê·hem bām

I do not want to print the common translation of the verse because it is blasphemous, but you can read it in any of the translations of the Bible, and to use the verse as a justification for killing gays, or anyone, is irreligious to say the least. The translation is far removed from what it actually says because the Holy Teaching is to be kind and helpful to any living being.

The Holy Text says to be helpful, and care for others as if family. God brings you the Godly Breath to live upon the earth and follow any earthly religion or not, but if you follow the teaching of kindness towards others, you will be following the Heavenly Word, and so be it.

Here is a verse from the Holy Book to think about and live with. Remember, a mover is any living being, be it a human or animal. The verse says if you hurt another living being, you will suffer equally.

To be in custody or move to the right,

To hurt a mover to be equal and move tortuously,

But to stop to be gone.

Verse from the Veda on this Sad Day

Amjad Sabri, well-known Sufi musician

Amjad Sabri, well-known Sufi musician

Today in Karachi, Pakistan, Amjad Sabri, the famous Sufi singer, was shot and killed. Two killers on a motorcycle opened fire on his car, killing Amjad and wounding his brother.

I have listened to the religious music of the Sabri Brothers for close to forty years. I listen to music from around the world, mostly of a religious nature, and Sabri was a well-known Qawwali singer, which is rooted in Sufi mysticism.

Allah is very sad. I am very sad. The peaceful of the world are sad that a faction of the Taliban is so misguided to take the life of another. Nothing is more abhorrent to the Creator of Everything, since the Holy Teaching is to be kind and helpful to others.

Allah knows the killers well, and whether or not they are able to evade the police, they will not evade God.

To be a Savior for those of the earth to have the Heavenly Breath, and heaven cherishes devotion to offering from the heart with unconditional love.

Verse from the Veda to Act On

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

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

The First of the Ten Commandments of the Christian Religion says, “Do not Kill.” As a ruling, a decree, or an edict, it seems straightforward enough, but for followers, there is confusion. I wish that Pope Francis and all the Christian Ministers and Priests would clarify the issue, so that everyone in the world will know what the proclamation means.

If they are not clear on the subject, the Sacred Hebrew and Aramaic Texts of the Bible and the Sanskrit texts of the Rigveda make it clear that it is wrong to kill another human. The Holy Texts also say that it is wrong to kill animals, birds, mammals, reptiles, and so on, for food, and certainly not for sport. The rule is nonviolence, and it must be maintained whether someone has killed another, has violated some religious belief, or is deemed an enemy of the state.

The Holy Father in Heaven is extremely clear, and says that it is wrong to harm any creature living upon the same air you live upon. The Holy Father says to go towards others to help, to be of service. That is the Holy Path, and if you are interested in spending time with the Holiest in Heaven, you need to follow the Holy Way.

Here are wise words of the Veda to think about and act on.

To exert one’s self for others separates the good from the bad.

Verse from the Veda to Meditate Upon

The wood engraving by an unknown artist first appeared in Camille Flammarion's L'atmosphère: météorologie populaire (1888). The image depicts a man crawling under the edge of the sky, depicted as if it were a solid hemisphere, to look at the mysterious Empyrean beyond. The caption underneath the engraving (not shown here) translates to "A medieval missionary tells that he has found the point where heaven and Earth meet..."

The caption underneath the engraving (not shown here) translates to “A medieval missionary tells that he has found the point where heaven and Earth meet…”

To be clear, the Rgvedaschool does not follow any of the earthly religions. Every recognized religion upon the earth, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Islam, Sufi, Jain, Confucianism, on so on, is based upon a poor translation of the Holy Scripture. It is unfortunate, and because of that, the earthly religions tend to lead away from God and not toward.

There are plenty of atheists in the world, because the religions of today lack a convincing argument for the existence of God. Not all religions posit a belief in God and for those that do – followers must rely upon faith. It is sad because God is obvious, so look closer, and see what is invisible. To help with that, God is with you from the first breath you take to the last, and if you do not come to the realization in this lifetime and become a follower of the teachings of God, then during your next life upon the earth, God will be with you.

Here is a verse from the Rigveda to meditate upon.

On the journey to the next world to arrive without bearing the body and for that reason the wind is the carrier, the air born with is identical in old age and to set the mind on is a way to begin.

Verse from the Veda for Meditation

Vyasa – Believed to have scribed the Rigveda around 3,000 BC.

Followers of the popular religions today appear to be confused about right and wrong, and some of the faithful find themselves on the wrong side of the law. The problems are numerous, but can be traced to a single cause. All of the ancient Holy Texts composed in Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, Sanskrit, and so on, are guidebooks Our Father in Heaven gave us, but unfortunately, they are not translated correctly. They are wide of the mark, abhorrent, and when the texts are translated correctly, meditation, non-violence, and non-discrimination is promoted, and followers are in line with the law of the land and with God.

The Holy Texts of the Bible are just like those of the Upanishads, the Quran, the Avesta, and so on. None of the ancient spiritual texts of the world promotes hurting any creature living upon the same air you do. They say to be kind to anyone, and to be as helpful as you would a best friend. Those are principles to meditate upon, and act upon, if there is an interest in spending time with the Holy Father in Heaven.

Promoted in the false religions of today are numerous rules and regulations not found in the Holy Texts. There are no rules about one type of meat being better for eating than another is, or about not eating meat on particular days, because the rule is not harming any living breathing creature. A vegetarian diet is the rule if one is interested in having an earthly body, clean enough for the Divine One to enter.

The Holy Text does not promote visiting Mecca, or Bethlehem, bathing in the Ganges, praying in this or that temple or church, because the Holy Temple is Space. The Holy Text says to be dressed when engaged in religious activities, but does not say that women need to wear headscarves, or be subservient to men. It says to be kind and helpful to one another, no matter the sex, sexual or religious preference, color of skin, whatever.

Aleister Crowley laid down the Law of Thelema in 1904. It states, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will. There is no law beyond Do what thou wilt.” Yes, the Law is close to the path, but if I may add a little… how about this? “If it harms no living creature, do what thou wilt. Love is the law, non-discrimination, and meditation.”

Here is a portion of the Veda for Meditation.

Worldly occupation is a fix,

And cutting is a religious act.

Verse from the Veda for Rising with the Sun

Vyasa – Believed to have scribed the Rigveda around 3,000 BC.

While upon the earth, a person has the opportunity to engage in worldly or heavenly activities. Most people choose worldly activities, but if the interest in experiencing the heavenly state during and after the earthly state, the choice must be heavenly activities. There is no free pass to heaven, and for most after death, the Hereafter will be here. Therefore, here are a few items that up one’s chances of rising above. They are meditating, non-violence, and non-discrimination.

Here is a verse from the Veda.

At dawn the birds fly forth from their resting place,

as people to earn their food.

While a worshipper with a generous breath remains in place,

and rises divine for those.
