The religions of today have an immense problem in that they require a belief in the unbelievable and in some parts of the world, those who publicly question their legitimacy can be found guilty of the crime of blasphemy. It is no small issue, especially in the Muslim nations of the Middle East where people are murdered for it. Killing in the name of religion certainly gives religion a bad name, and it muddies the waters of who is irreverent. It is a mixed up world today, so it takes a keen eye to discern the truth from fiction.

In the previous post, I wrote a little about Moses and the receiving of the Ten Commandments. This is an important story in the religions of Christianity and Judaism because it gives them a foundation, but the story is just a story and the directives are wrong.

I will not list what has come to be known as the Ten Commandments because the only one that is required by God is non-killing. Although you still need to master the meditations, it is vitally important to hold to not hurting or killing any living being.

We have been given the directives, and they have been carved in stone in ancient Egyptian and Pre-Mayan Temples and scribed in numerous ancient languages. What should be of interest to many is that every one of the ancient Holy Books of the world comprises the knowledge that a Loving God has given to his children. It includes the ancient Sanskrit texts of the Rigveda, the Upanishads, the Gita, the Avesta, the Quran, the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, and so on, but there is a problem with the translations of those texts in print today. The translators of those books are mistaken in thinking that the texts are written in the common languages of Sanskrit, Avestan, Hebrew, Aramaic, and so on. It is a big mistake because the texts are written in a Sacred Language and when they are translated as such, they say something quite different than is currently known. Yes, and interestingly, every one of the ancient Sacred Texts of the world advances the same body of knowledge.

In such unfortunate times, it is particularly lucky that the Rgvedaschool cracked the code of the Sacred Language. When the code was broken, it was discovered that even though the ancient spiritual texts are written in many languages, they can be translated with a single dictionary. Furthermore, they share a consistent philosophy of kindness toward others, and yes, such is the very philosophy advanced by the Rgvedaschool.

 Here is a verse from the Holy Veda from the Heavenly Being.

The Subtle One is a spirit to be absorbed into for a favorable fortune,

and to AH with compassion to be together.

Verse from the Veda, the Sacred Knowledge of God

A still from the movie "The Ten Commandments" by Cecil B. DeMill. An imaginary depiction of God carving the Commandments in stone.

A still from the movie “The Ten Commandments” by Cecil B. DeMill. An imaginary depiction of God carving the Commandments in stone.

The Ten Commandments are associated with Christianity and Judaism and are said to have been inscribed by God on two stone tablets that were given to Moses while he was upon Mount Sinai. The picture above is a depiction of the incident in Cecil B. DeMill’s 1956 movie by the same name. It was a very dramatic scene to watch with the fire and smoke, but as you might imagine, it is imaginary. The Commandments are listed twice in the Bible due to their importance in the religions, so it is quite unfortunate that the translation of those Hebrew verses is so far from the truth.

The Ten Commandments that appear in the Bible are not the words of God, but the words of men. However, in distant times, such as the last Golden Age, a set of rules was known on the earth, and it was given by God. The Golden Age started around 16,000 BC and ended about 7,000 BC, and since then, the Knowledge of Heaven has disappeared and the rules and regulations of men appeared.

What is known as the Golden Rule appears in religions and cultures across the world, and because of that, it is likely from the Golden Age. Here we are 10,000 years later and we still know about treating others as we wish to be treated.

The Ten Commandments of Christianity and Sharia Law of Islam are deemed the word of God, but are simply the words of men. If you are confused, you cannot go wrong by following the Golden Rule. If you follow that, you will not kill or harm any living creature of the land, air, and sea. Nonviolence is paramount if you have an interest in tasting the delights of heaven. Those walking the Holy Path are peaceful and dedicate their lives to helping others. Such is a necessity on the path to heaven, along with mastering the meditations to become enlightened for helping all upon the earth.

Here is a verse from the Veda.

To exert oneself for a mover to be absorbed into on the one side to bring into a state on the other to smile, a virtue attaining for the suffering, and of the five, the number “one” is to be able and to serve a sort of mantra to urge.

Mount Meru – considered as the physical and metaphysical center of the universe. The mountain is sacred in the Jain, Hindu, and Buddhist religions

People inspire the breath to increase their strength,

and to enjoy rising up as the Conqueror on the mountain,

you may be little but to call on to be great in the darkness is huge,

for the force of life is protecting and brings the light.

Verse from the Veda Calling for Peace

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

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

The Rgvedaschool applauds the action of former United States Army Chaplain Chris Antal who resigned his duties in the United Stated Army. Reverend Antal is a minister for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Rock Tavern, New York, and a founder of the Hudson Valley chapter of Veterans for Peace.

He resigned his duties in the army in June of this year because he could no longer support the United States drone warfare program, the nuclear weapons program, the commitment of global supremacy, and impunity from international law.

The Rgvedaschool applauds the action because a main position of the Holy Teaching of the Supreme Absolute is not killing. This is a key point if one wants a taste of the Heavenly Nectar, and it means do not kill any creature living upon the same air we all breathe. Furthermore, since a follower of the teaching does not go towards another to hurt or kill, they go towards to help, to care for, and regard as a brother or sister.

A vegetarian diet is necessary if a person does not kill or support the killing of any breathing creature of the water, land, and air. Yes, such is the case, but we are very lucky, for the Creator has filled the earth with good things to eat and enjoy.

That is the outer part of the teaching; the inner part is mastering the meditations.

Here is a Verse from the Veda Calling for Peace.

To be kind and say prayers for those who strike and insult,

And please heaven with compassion on the earth.

Verse from the Veda for Spending Time with the Eternal One

NGC 3603

As mentioned in the last post, Brahma is the Divine Absolute and Nara – the Eternal Spirit Pervading the Universe. To create the universe, Brahma separated into two parts, heaven and earth. The Eternal One surrounds and pervades everything so there is no place you will be without. All living beings and objects are matter, earth, and the space between living beings and objects is heaven. As you might think, living beings are not completely earth. Because we live on the Heavenly Breath and the air moves everything in the body, it is no surprise that the Holy Text recommends drawing in a large amount of air for holding in the belly. Such is an important meditation on the Path of Brahma, and more about that can be found in the various pages of this site, such as the section called Meditation.

Here is a verse from the Veda for spending time with the Eternal One.

The Lord is bounteous to be a shelter, for a chanter to shelter to be enriched with the wisdom to chant, the Shining Ones abide by the mantras and the righteous action to draw in the air for holding at sunrise for to rise in to send forth the knowledge.

The Supreme Spirit dwells within all beings and the mightiest fill with the Power, to be vast with the air for the light and for blessing all with the Wisdom of the Wind, to praise with AH to be brilliant and joyful and to flow with the truth to chant.

Verse from the Veda for the Day in Heavenly Bliss

Arp 273

Nara in Sanskrit refers to the Eternal Spirit Pervading the Universe, and Nārāyaṇa refers to Brahma. Brahma, the Divine Absolute, surrounds and pervades everything. To create the universe, Brahma separated in male and female, God of Heaven and Goddess of Earth. Heaven and earth are outside of us for a place to exist and inside of us for rising to heaven. Brahma separates out of love for all beings, separates for comparison, for conceptions, and without that, there is no thought but one.

Brahma is called Grandfather, because all of us upon the earth are the sons and daughters of the God and Goddess. Brahma is also called the Creator, the Eternal One, the Protector, Namely, the Universal, the Unborn, and so on. Brahma has many names, and what is important to know is that we are all related to the same Divine Parents for the hope of living upon the earth as one big happy family. If we want, we can say that we are the son or daughter of God or the Goddess, but why, it is the same for everyone.

Here is a mantra from the Veda for the Day in Heavenly Bliss.

To have ears to hear and eyes to see the goodness of God,

And to gladly sing praise,

For to have firm limbs and a body,

And a lifetime to happily call on heaven for.

Verse from the Veda from the Oral Tradition

The Manjushri Kumara, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom.

The Manjushri Kumara, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom.

The Manjushri Nama Samgiti is a very important text associated with Mahayana Buddhism. The most popular translation of the text into English is by Alex Wayman. The book, Chanting the Names of Manjushi, published by Shambhala in 1985, is an extremely inept translation of the Sacred Text. Unfortunately, there is nothing any better in the market these days.

The Manjushri Namasamgiti is promoted as a text of the words of Shakyamuni Buddha who lived around 500 BC, but such is speculation. It is an unfortunate situation today, because there is no Buddha upon the earth, but many hundreds of thousands of extremely devoted Buddhists. It is an unfortunate situation because not one Buddhist in over two-thousand five hundred years has become enlightened by following the Buddhist Doctrine.

Interestingly, Shakyamuni is associated with the Rishis of the Rigveda, which is believed to have been put in writing around 1500 BC. Today, the Rishis are associated with Hinduism, but they were a lineage who became Buddhas, which is connected to Buddhism. Because no one has become enlightened for so long, that which is considered up today is really down.

Seriously, the lineage ended with Shakyamuni, but it can be traced back to a far more distant time. Kanva Ghaura, the Founder the Vedic School, was the celebrated Rishi of Tretayuga that began around 7000 BC and ended around 3000 BC.

The truth is that the Sanskrit Text of the Manjushri Namasamgiti is the word of Brahma, the Divine Absolute, and a Buddha will adhere to the teaching to illustrate the teaching for people.

Here is a verse from the Oral Tradition.

The Oral Tradition is for a wise and learned person to live just as,

But for people.

The air for those grows bright to have authority,

And possessing nothing,

But to call on to sing a Sacred Precept.

Verse from the Veda about Obtaining the Love of Heaven for Sharing Upon the Earth

360-degree panorama view of the Milky Way (an assembled mosaic of photographs) by ESO. The galactic centre is in the middle of the view, with galactic north up.

You cannot help but be awestruck by the immense size of the known universe. The picture heading this post is the Milky Way, the galaxy in which our Solar System revolves.

The Milky Way has a diameter of about 150,000–180,000 light-years, and contains 100–400 billion stars. At the center of our Solar System is one of the stars, and it is 27,000 light-years from the Galactic Center.

The Milky Way is immense in size, yet it is just one of numerous galaxies, as the known or observable universe contains as many as 200 billion galaxies. There is also the Unknown, but that cannot be known, for it is the place only Brahma knows, and it does not change.

There is One Creator of Everything; so therefore, there is only one true path for one to walk. Upon the earth today are countless spiritual and religious practices with very different ways. The practices are not stable, but always changing, and that is different from the Holy Teaching of the Creator, because the Holy Path does not change, no matter where a living being resides in the vast universe.

It seems like we of the earth would be lost to the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe in the vastness of space, but such is not the case. The Holy Spirit Pervading the Universe comes to every living being with the living breath. The breath comes to us with love and upon the stream of air is the Holy Teaching.

Many thousands of years ago, when Enlightened Beings roamed the earth, Brahma was able to teach through them. The Enlightened had many names like Rishis, Buddhas, Messiahs, Magians, Adityas, Serpent Kings, and so on, and they would sit in silent meditation, and the Supreme Teacher would present the teaching utilizing the breath held within. The teaching that was heard became part of the Oral Tradition, which was eventually written down, and today, we have the very text of the Holy Words. Rigveda is a Sanskrit word that means the Sacred Text of the Sacred Knowledge, so Rigveda refers to a particular Sanskrit spiritual text, and every ancient spiritual text on the earth. The Rigveda, the Brahma Sutras, Yoga Sutras, Shrimad Bhagavatam, Mahabharata, and so on, are Rigveda because they contain the Sacred Text of the Sacred Knowledge. All of the ancient Sanskrit Texts are the same, as well as the Pali Texts, the Avesta, the Aramaic and Hebrew Texts of the Bible, the Arabic Text of the Quran, hieroglyphics on walls of Egyptian pyramids and Mayan Temples, and so on.

The Sacred Knowledge is available through many sources, but is not known today because it has been lost in translation. The translation of all of the ancient spiritual texts to modern languages is a sham. The major error is that the translators have taken the Sacred Text to be a common language. Consequently, the books considered most holy to the various earthly religions are but a common translation. The Holy Text says something quite different from what is currently in print. When the texts are translated as a Sacred Language, they are found to share an identical philosophy because their source is identical. Every verse teaches the Holy Path to walk to overcome the suffering of the earth, and the meditations to rise above to be with in heaven.

All of the ancient spiritual texts on the earth are the Guidebooks the Creator of Heaven and Earth has given us to be happy, and we have been given a vast playground of the universe to enjoy. When the Rgvedaschool discovered how to translate the Rigveda, it discovered how to translate the Arabic Text of the Quran, the Hebrew and Aramaic Texts of the Bible and so on. Interestingly, the school translates all the ancient spiritual texts in exactly the same way utilizing the same dictionary, and miraculously, the same philosophy.

The philosophy has many names, such as the Philosophical System of AH, the Good Path to Good Fortune, and so on, and the teaching is meant to be available to everyone, to enjoy living in this awesome universe. In this universe, the teaching is consistent, to be kind and helpful to all living beings, so the deer and the fox can enjoy playing in the field with the children.

Here is a verse from the Veda about obtaining the love of heaven for sharing upon the earth.

Love pervades heaven,

And to gain this on earth,

Obtain Heavenly AH,

And to worship the God of Love,

As a favor stand still,

For the wind and the knowledge to come from the Leader to most cheerfully lead.

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.
