Rigveda Suktas

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 consulted. There is a vast library at the school, and much is written in English.

These mantras 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 mantras, but here, the allegorical story makes sense. The ancient gods and characters with strange sounding names appear in this text on occasion for continuity with its predecessors, but here, the text is easy to read and the message is clear.

The school has likely translated a portion of every mantra from the First Mandala of the Rigveda, and this can vary from a single word to most of the mantra. 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 suktas, hymns, to enjoy the day with Brahma.
