Rigveda Hymns

To produce the Sacred Text of the Sacred Knowledge, the English translation of H.H. Wilson (credited with the first English translation of the Rigveda) and those of many other translators are combined into one, amended to be consistent with the Holy Teaching of Grandfather. Although the translations of H. H. Wilson, Ralph Griffith, and Basanta Ganguly provide the main source material, the works of Swami Dayananda, Sri Aurobindo, Raimundo Panikkar, Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Shyam Ghosh, and many others were utilized. There is a vast library at the school, and much is written in the English Language.

These verses have been revisioned, repurposed, with help from the Creator, and as an honor, all the verses have been arranged so that Brahma is the speaker. In the process of rearranging the words of this revision, the school would kind-of dangle the words in the air and let the wind blow them into position. It was like that, but in the mind. Those who are familiar with the Wilson and Griffith translations will find similarities to the verses, but here, the allegorical story they speak of will make sense. The ancient gods and beings with strange sounding names appear in this text on occasion for continuity with its predecessors, but here, the text easy to read and the message is clear.

The school has translated a portion of almost every verse from the First Mandala of the Rigveda, and this can vary from a single word to the complete verse, so verses that are longer than those surrounding will indicate the degree of activity. For this undertaking, the school has taken the translations of previous translators and transformed them, stepped them up to a higher degree. Yes, and for a devotee, such is the Sacred Teaching. Here are a few hymns from the Veda to enjoy the day with Brahma.
