India has been populated for a long time, and current archaeological research has revealed an urban culture by 6,500 BC in Northwestern India and Pakistan that some researchers think the text of the Rigveda originated. The settlements of Mehrgarh and Mohenjo-Daro were well-planned cities by 3,000 BC and of considerable size for the time, populations of fifteen to twenty-five thousand inhabitants. The houses were of brick and many had running water and bathrooms with a sewer system constructed under the streets. There does not appear to be any fortifications for safety so we can assume it was a peaceful time. The Indus Valley Culture, as it is called, is believed to have collapsed after the Sarasvati River partially dried up around 1,900 BC. Because of the close vicinity of the Himalayan mountains earthquakes were the likely cause of that. Over 2,500 towns and cities have already been unearthed from the sands of what is now known as the Great Indian Desert.
Some researcher’s think the Indus Valley Culture was built upon an older and larger culture known as the Naga Empire. The word “naga” in Sanskrit means serpent, a teacher, and the word “nagara” is the written character. Interestingly, the written script of the Sanskrit alphabet is called Devanagari. It is often translated as “City of the Gods” but such is a little short sighted. The Sanskrit language is the root of most western languages, including English. Sanskrit is accepted as a Divine Language and many of the world’s oldest spiritual treasures, such as this one, are written in it. Many scholars claim the Rigveda is written in an archaic form of Sanskrit because they cannot translate or understand it, and many describe the difficulties of translating the verses. If you examine their work, you will easily come to realize the problem. In fact, if you examine their work very closely you will discover that their translations are completely made up, fabricated, and tailored to fit a particular religious agenda. Translating the verses is difficult, but when fully and accurately translated, they describe the Path to Enlightenment. Yes, and this, and all the ancient spiritual texts of the world are the guidebooks the Creator of the Universe gives to humans for a life of fullness.
Here are a few words from the Divine Absolute.
To chant in reverence,
For I, Brahma, am compassionate,
And bestow this abundant universe with love for you to enjoy.
