Verse from the Veda to Lift the Spirit

The other day I watched a couple of YouTube videos of the Dharavi Slum of Mumbai, India. I thought I would be depressed watching, but I was not. The living condition in the slum is not ideal, the life expectancy of a resident is less than 60. It is noisy, smelly, and polluted, and one of the most densely populated areas in the world. The air and water is polluted and there is no sewage or drainage system. The electrical lines hang low and are such a mess I do not know how anyone can figure it out.

There are about 500 industries and over 15,000 single room factories in Dharavi. The single rooms that I saw in the videos were dirty with little ventilation. The people were working hard under poor conditions and likely receiving little money for it, enough to buy food and live, but little else. Dharavi has plenty of food vendors, and seeing all the wonderful food and bread items made my mouth water. I love Indian food, it makes up the majority of my diet.

An outsider to Dharavi would need a guide to wonder the narrow congested streets and find their way back. The narrow streets are unmarked and filled with small businesses and people scurrying about, with motor bikes and other vehicles weaving in and out amongst the clutter. It is a sight to behold, I had no idea what was ahead or around a corner, it seemed like an endless maze.

I think that life is difficult for the people, and what I found inspiring was watching children playing in the streets with friends, older people sitting about and talking or moving about, is that they were friendly and appeared happy. The people have to be creative and resourceful to live with so little, when some people have everything and are so depressed. Dharavi is a vibrant place to live, and I wish all the community the best.

Currently about 1 in 7 people around the world live in a slum, and what is depressing is the prediction that in ten years 1 in 4 people will make such a place home. Here is a mantra to lift the spirit.

Filling the belly with the air is attractive and divine to cause a juice to flow in the vessel to cleanse a coverer of the earth to cover in the brilliance of heaven. To be in control of that spread out the navel with the air and lift upward to lift the spirit and bring delight, for those to spread joy and compassion among mortals.

Verse from the Veda to Worship

What happened to the people in the past who worshiped the gods and goddesses associated with the Rigveda like Indra, Agni, Rudra, Usha, Mitra, Varuna, Aryaman and so on? What happened to the people in the past who worshiped the Greek gods and goddesses of Apollo, Zeus, Poseidon, Athena, Aphrodite, Hermes, and so on? What happened to the people in the past who worshiped the Roman gods or goddesses of Mars, Mercury, Neptune, Venus, Diana, and so on? What happened to the people in the past who worshiped the gods or goddesses of Thor, Freya, Odin, Frigg. Balder, Loki, and so on? What happened to the people in the past who worshiped Shiva, Krishna, Durga, Hanuman, Kali, and so on? What happened to the people in the past who worshiped Buddha, Jesus, Maharishi, or Muhammad? What happened to the people in the past who worshiped Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri, White Tara, Green Tara, Vajrapani, and so on. What happened to the Vikings or other warriors who believed they would spend eternity in a heavenly paradise should they die in battle? What happened to the people who lived and died and did not believe in religion and an afterlife or worship any deity?

What happened to them you ask? They lived, died, and were born again on the earth. Some of these deities and directives are still worshiped today and the people who do will die to be born again on the earth. They will not experience freedom from suffering or eternity in the heavenly state, only the mortal state repeatedly.

There are not many paths to the heavenly state, only one, and God upon the earth is the heavenly breath. To fill with heaven to serve others, to meditate, and sacrifice the ego (the enemy) to live together with God and Goddess in heavenly bliss. Such is the teaching of heaven, and here is a mantra for meditation.

Sacrifice to the Lord to become perfect and adorned with light, and to scatter the foe or be born an animal and enjoy brushing off flies with a tail.

Compassion for all breathing creatures that cry

Verse from the Veda to be Peaceful

Recently, I watched a television program called Ancient Aliens, and pose a question, “If aliens helped bring about civilization long ago, where are they now when the civil of civilization seems about gone?”

I suspect there are billions of populated planets throughout the universe, although my interest in the show is the ancient historical sites portrayed. The show I watched featured the city of Caral in Peru. Caral or the ‘Sacred City of Caral-Supe’ is located in the Supe Valley, 120 miles north of Lima. It is considered the oldest city and civilization in the western hemisphere, with an unmatched diversity of monumental buildings, both ceremonial and administrative.

The culture developed around 3000 BC, contemporary with other early civilizations in Egypt, India, Samaria, and China. The site was discovered in 1948 and has an elaborate complex of temples (nineteen temple complexes scattered across 35 square miles), an amphitheater, plazas and residential buildings. Its pyramids are similar in appearance to those constructed in Egypt at the time.

Ruth Shady studied the site about 20 years ago and concluded that Caral was a peaceful society built on commerce and pleasure. No fortifications or weapons were found, similar to that of the Indus Valley Culture of Northwestern India and eastern Pakistan that developed about the same time. In Mohenjo-Daro, no fortifications or governmental buildings were found with the largest structure being a public bath. The people were likely modest and peaceful, their cities were noted for urban planning, baked brick houses with running water, bathrooms, and a sewer system constructed under the streets.

The Third Age, Tretayuga, was a peaceful time. Caral and the Indus Valley Culture were beginning when Tretayuga was ending around 3000 BC and they were peaceful cultures. Rishi Kanva Ghora founded the Vedaschool during Tretayuga, but by the time the Dark Age of Kaliyuga began around 700 BC conflicts had begun. The Kaliyuga is dark because no enlightened being graces the earth and with no light to follow people lose their way, and lose their way they did. Kaliyuga was a brutal, dangerous time to be alive, and people are still cruel and immoral during these early days of the Second Age, but in time, they will change. For your interest, the guidebook of the Vedaschool from the age of peace has been found and is currently in use at the Rgvedaschool.

For those to consider, the Holy Doctrine is compassion for all breathing creatures that cry. Be a peaceful caring person, consume a vegetarian diet and enjoy watching and listening to the creatures of the land, water, and air, and if one is suffering, care for them. It does not matter if they have two feet, four feet, or no feet and speak in a language you do not understand, treat them kindly so all can enjoy life upon the earth. Such is the doctrine of peace for the whole of the earth and here is a mantra to consider.

To stay with the knowledge leads to a favorable fortune and brilliance for people to observe a kind and peaceful being. Surrender is a virtue and mastering desire, and for that, consume the air to stay with is favorable for people to see.

Verse from the Veda, the Hanuman Chalisa

In India, there are more temples devoted to Hanuman, the beloved monkey, then any other deity. In Sanskrit, the monkey is Hanumat that means having large jaws. In Hindi, the name is Hanuman and is a central character and devotee of Ram in the Hindu epic the Ramayana. He is said to be an incarnation of Shiva and acclaimed for strength, courage, and wisdom. Chanting the Hanuman Chalisa is a popular religious practice. I never knew the chant by heart but knew devotees who did and they loved the recitation. I provided musical accompaniment, and enjoyed listening to the poetry of the Awadhi text.

The Hanuman Chalisa is the most popular hymn of Hanuman and recited by millions of devotees every day. It was composed in the Awadhi language by Goswami Tulsidas around 1600. Tulsidas was a Hindu poet and saint known for his devotion for Rama. He lived in the city of Varanasi, India, until his death in 1623. He founded the Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple in Varanasi, and the Tulsi Ghat in Varanasi is named after him, . The Hanuman Chalisa has forty verses as the word “chalis” in Hindi means forty.

Tulsidas was devoted to Rama and as such did not understand the Veda, but nevertheless, composed the Veda. The text has a few inept English translations to avoid to gravitate to the one translated in the Sacred Way to transmit the Sacred Knowledge to arise from the earth to delight in the heavenly state. Here is a couplet.

To be born of a mother on the earth in contact with the Goddess of speech, and to anoint in connection with draw in for cutting to be born in for the cause to serve there.

To be a monkey oh no, roar for the act of cutting off the body to get rid of, and a wind sound rises and happiness for the cause to serve there.

Verse from the Veda to Delight in the Mystical Syllable

The Rgvedaschool has translated spiritual texts from all over the world, and they appear in many languages and many forms. There are portions of texts associated with all the major religions upon the earth today, some from the past, and when translated in the Sacred Way produce the Veda, the Sacred Teaching to attain the heavenly state.

One spiritual text associated with the Mayan people of Central America appears in hieroglyphic form in the Temple of Inscriptions in Palenque, Chiapas, Mexico. The temple is the largest stepped pyramid of Mesoamerica, and the name in Mayan is “House of the Nine Sharpened Spears.” The building is a funerary monument to K’inich Pakal who ruled in the 7th century. Construction began in the last 10 years of his life and completed by his son. The cover of the tomb of K’inich Pakal gained prominence about 50 years ago when it was claimed to be an image of an astronaut in a spaceship. It is not but even more interesting, the tomb cover is a five-ton carved block of stone and that, along with the funeral mask covering Pakal’s face can produce numerous images. Transparencies of the images offset in numerous ways produce different images. The tomb cover produces an image of Pakal as a young boy, as a Lord, depicts the sun’s effect of the earth, the purpose of life, what happens at death, and so on, 100 different images, and the mask is similar to produce different animals, birds, reptiles, or images of Pakal. The hieroglyphics in the tomb convey different teaching depending upon how it is translated. The Rgvedaschool uses the same dictionary to translate all the world’s spiritual texts and such conveys the Sacred Knowledge of heaven. Here is a mantra about the mystical syllable of AH.

To delight in the mystical syllable used in spells to strongly issue out for attaining in the body to devote oneself to, and roar in happiness on the earth as suffering to cast.

Verse from the Veda for the Time to Arise

It is likely a little weird for some people who come to this site with a bit of knowledge about the Rigveda and find little here that matches their understanding. The Rigveda is usually associated with a plethora of gods and goddesses like Indra, Agni, Ashvins, Rudra, Varuna, Usha, Maruts, and so on, but such are untranslated Sanskrit words. Any good translator like those of the Rgvedaschool translate the words and therein the gods disappear. All the words of the Veda are translatable in Sanskrit and when done so the mantras begin to make more sense. It is a start and to further, the word go or gau in many translations appear as cows, change it to light, matter, or sound. It is a complex text to understand but promotes the knowledge of enlightenment to become a Buddha, the highest state a human can achieve. In essence, the Buddha has risen above the earthly state to be with Brahma in heavenly bliss, but returns to the earth to care for all the holy children.

For those to consider the Holy Doctrine, the philosophy is compassion for all breathing creatures that cry, yes, all. Be a peaceful and caring person. Consume a vegetarian diet, and enjoy watching and listening to the creatures of the land, water, and air, and if one is suffering, care for them. Do not harm any creature. It does not matter if they have two feet, four feet, or no feet and speak in a language you do not understand, treat them kindly so all can enjoy life upon the earth. Such is the doctrine of compassion for the whole of the earth and here is a mantra.

It is time to arise, to give up and burn number one for the authority to spring up to reverence and shine forth.

Verse from the Veda for Authority

Tutankhamun, commonly known as King Tut, is the most known pharaoh of ancient Egypt, even though he died at the age of eighteen of unknown causes. He was the last of his royal family and ruled during the end of the Eighteenth Dynasty of the New Kingdom, 1332 BC – 1323 BC. His father was the pharaoh Akhenaten and just to keep everything in the family, his mother was Akhenaten’s sister. Tutankhamun took the throne at eight or nine years of age. He was physically disabled with a deformity to his left foot. He had scoliosis and other issues so that he needed a cane. Pharaohs were idolized after their deaths, but interestingly, Tutankhamun was idolized in the same way during his lifetime.

The name Tutankhamun is said to mean “The Living Image of Amun.” Amun, Amon, Ammon, Amen is the god of the air, and one of the eight principle deities in the Egyptian pantheon. It is said that Amun created himself and then everything else in the universe before separating. Amun’s role as a deity changed over time and by the New Kingdom Amun had merged with Ra, the ancient sun god, to become Amun-Ra. Am means to honor or serve, un means to rise or spring up, and ra means to be giving or loving. Similarly, the word Tutankhamun can be translated in the Sacred Way and advances the Philosophical System of AH, the Sacred Knowledge for living with the Lord. Here is a verse from the Veda for authority.

For authority put forth as the sun and regard anyone.

Verse from the Veda about the Doctrine being Hijacked

Over the period known as the Kaliyuga, the Dark Age of Humanity, much of the Sacred Teaching vanished and a little remained to split into the various religions of today such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Mithraism, Sikhism, Voodoo, Santeria, and so on. All of the religions claim a divine origin, which is true, but all have strayed, and even if all came together to form one religion, critical steps to attain the heavenly state are not found. There are inner and outer teachings to master; the outer is kindness to all breathing creatures that cry because all are one family living in the same abode upon the same air.

The religions previously mentioned are earthly religions, and to follow their doctrine to death leads to rebirth upon the earth, repeatedly until the Sacred Teaching is mastered. A serious problem is that their holy texts are translated from Sanskrit, Hebrew, Aramaic, Avestan, Arabic, and so on, as a common language rather than a Sacred Text. A result of the poor translation of their spiritual texts is a misguided doctrine and to follow does not result in the promise, i.e. eternal bliss in the heavenly state. The religions of the earth do not teach the Sacred Doctrine and as a result, today a hellish state exists upon the earth with a high number of people with a high degree of anger and low degree of morality.

If you have any interest in reaching the heavenly state, begin by following the moral teaching of kindness to any creature that grasps for the breath and cries. For those with a greater interest the knowledge of heaven for heaven is available on this site now for knowing and attaining. Here is a mantra from the Veda about the teaching of heaven spreading in the wrong direction.

The invisible protector of the universe comes down and back traveling the path, yet the knowledge of the good path directed with one aim has spread in many directions.

To be devoted to the doctrine, compassion is like behaving properly towards a lover with an inner part produced in meditative absorption.

Verse from the Veda to Care for Others to Care for Others

The enlightened spread all over the earth and attained many names. In the Rigveda, the highest state attainable by a human on the earth is that of a Buddha, and enlightened beings attain a body of light and eternal happiness to prove the doctrine. In other ancient texts, the awakened attain the name of Magi, Āditya, Messiah, Asura, Priest King, and so on. Ṡākyamuni Buddha was the last enlightened being to grace the earth and with passing, the Sacred Knowledge faded away. It disappeared for the whole of the Kaliyuga, the Dark Age of humanity that began about 700 BC. It was a dangerous, brutal, bloodthirsty time to be alive, and accordingly a portion of the time in Europe is called the Dark Ages. It is now over, but ignorance and danger will continue upon the earth for a long time to come. The next Golden Age is many thousands of years away, but for those interested, the knowledge to become golden is here now. The path is long but shortened by understanding, and greatly shortened by devotion and living accordingly. Here is a mantra from the Veda.

To spread the knowledge to tread the good path with good fortune and a light to investigate, with that to become an authority, and an authority is powerful with the power of love to care for others, for those to care for others and so on.


Verse from the Veda to Find Happiness

The Veda, the Sacred Knowledge, advances to all people throughout the universe via the principle of life and sensation, a breath from heaven, for a person to rise to heaven. The knowledge that spreads throughout the universe obviously spread throughout the earth. Unfortunately, such was many thousands of years ago when the Shining Ones graced the earth as shining examples of the Holy Teaching. They were people like us who listened to the Supreme Spirit pervading the universe and lived accordingly. They became enlightened and glowed with light and happily served the less fortunate upon the earth. The teaching was preserved via the Oral Tradition so an unbroken thread continued upon the earth until the lineage ended, at which time the text was carved or painted on walls or scribed on palm leaves for preservation. Although there is a claim by some of being enlightened, there has not been such a person upon the earth in over three thousand years yet the spiritual teaching to follow to become is available. The knowledge is preserved in all the ancient spiritual texts of the world, preserved in the texts of the Rigveda, Upanishads, Quran, Bible, and so on, yet not transmitted due to inept translations. Here is a mantra to give you the idea.

The first Angiras gained vital force for themselves, then the fire was ignited through good thoughts and deeds. Together they found happiness and the light by gathering the breath within, essential to liberate the bound soul to the Eternal Spirit pervading the universe.
