The Hindus have received their religion through revelation, the Vedas. These are direct intuitional revelations and are held to be Apaurusheya or entirely superhuman, without any author in particular. The Veda is the glorious pride of the Hindus, nay, of the whole world! The term Veda comes from the root 'Vid', to know. The word Veda means knowledge.
Cremation was believed to prevent the spirit of the dead from remaining among the living, and for this reason, worshippers of Agni burned their dead, and Agni was responsible for transporting the soul of the dead. Another important deity is Varuna, who was initially associated with heaven. Varuna was also the executor and keeper of the eternal law known as Rita. This was at first the law that established and maintained the stars in their courses; gradually it became also the law of right, the cosmic and moral rhythm which every human must follow to avoid the celestial punishment.
Myths are products of beliefs, and beliefs are products of experience. This story reflects the concerns and experiences of a community based on agricultural lifestyle, where water is seen as one of the most valuable assets.
Myths with an agricultural significance are found in many other cultures and dragon-slaying myths are told all over the world, especially in many other Indo-European traditions. Later Vedic Period During Vedic times, it was widely believed that rituals were critical to maintain the order of the cosmos and that sacred ceremonies helped the universe to keep working smoothly.
In a sense, ceremonies were seen as part of a deal between humans and the gods: Humans performed sacrifices and rituals, and the gods would return their favour under the form of protection and prosperity. Priests were not willing to admit their helplessness in trying to master nature and would say that the gods ignored poor quality offers.
The solution, the priests said, required more royal support. Brahman priests refused to have their privileges cut, so they developed a new literature which specified, sometimes in a very detailed way, how rituals had to be performed, the precise quantity and quality of material to be used, and the exact pronunciation of sacred formulas.
This new set of texts, known as the Brahmanas, was attached to the Vedic collection around the 6th century BCE. The priests claimed that if sacrifices were performed exactly as they said, then the gods would be compelled to respond. Brahma agreed as they were the two beings who were the most powerful. Later Shiva entered the scene.
Brahma refused to recognize him as a true God because of his appearance but on Vishnu's insistence, he complied. This is the story. There we can say, it is Brahma who is the most important as he created the entire Universe, or all the three Gods have to be iven equal importance. This is actually a complete cycle of Bhakt, bhakti and Bhagwan. In India we search for God within us, God takes the form according to our desires and goals. This leads to millions of gods as unique as the people who thought of them.
Then came tales relating them, joining them and created the hindu pantheons. Vishnu, Shiva, Bramha are all the gods that got major following. Each have their own Purana which sees them as supreme and other gods as minor, just as the people who worshipped them thought themselves supreme over others. Violent clashes have resulted due to shaivas and vaishnavas fighting about who's god was superior. The unique thing about sanatandharma is that it accepts that there is only one God, but, there are as many paths to his as there are people.
So, I declare the question reeks of "my dad can beat your dads ass! Seek your own God, in you own Way. He had given you all the Tools.
I am not a Vedic scholar. I cannot say if Griffith's technically wrong in some places as traditional scholars say. We have admit that a person's cultural background will certainly have an influence on the way he interprets the Vedas. I have heard that it is one of the simplest translations, one that could be easily understood by beginners. You may read it first and then compare it with interpretations of other scholars.
Vijay thanks for the information. I could never trust the translation of the Vedas by people who do not believe in it,respect it or even understand it. The true message will be lost. I agree that it loses some meaning in English but I cannot speak Hindi: Hello, Click on the link below to download four vedas for free.
Satya, I have not come across ebooks of Sanskrit text of four Vedas with English translation on the internet till now. You could download printed books with Sanskrit text and English translation of the Vedas from the following publishers.
I'm Dr. Susantha from Sri Lanka. The translation of Vedas by Griffith and Muller should be trashed as they were strangers to Sanatana Dharma hence couldn't have' perceived the contextual meaning of the Vedic verses.
I do not believe they mastered the Vedangas before embarking on translation of Vedas. It must be literal translation not having any regard to the CHanda meter used in composing the Vedas. A sample reading of their translation gave me the feeling of some hidden agenda to deviate the reader from true meaning of the Verses. Please advise if any Indian scholar has ever translated Vedas into English or any Indian language.
I am keen to read the reliable Indian translation. Also, please discourage people from reading faulty translation by the Foreigners. I want to know abt ancient technology which was published in one of the veda books. It was written by one of the son of god surya. But I don't know whether it was right r not. All the four vedas having ancient technology and inner meanings of techniques for relief.
Especially Adharvana Veda is having all techniques. With all respect to the people behind this effort, uploading the misinterpreted version of Vedas by Griffith is not a service to Hinduism.
It is like opposing Hinduism. We have also to think why no Indian scholar translated the Vedas into English before Griffith. Even now, I am not aware of an English translation of the Vedas by Indian scholar which is in public domain.
Please let me know if you can name any. Indians simply didn't translated it because English was not known in India at that time. English education started later in india. Scholars at Agniveer has translated it in to english only reliable version.. Grifth and Max translation is almost thrashed by all sanskrit scholars Prabhat Chauhan, After reading your comment, I visited Agniveer site. Their English translation of the Vedas is not in open domain. One has to download them. I think you did not read my comment carefully.
I had said that we do not have reliable English translations of the Vedas by Indian scholars in the open domain. Shankara ji, I have an off-topic question. Can you tell me whether you are able to download books from the Digital Library of India?
I haven't been able to download books for about a fortnight. A few pages are downloaded and it doesn't progress further.
Just want to know whether you have any issues downloading or is it a problem at my end only. Ajitji, It is true that DLI has been slow for some weeks, especially on weekends. IDM performs much better than others. I am surprised to know that you are not able to download with IDM. When one site of DLI is slow, sometimes, download is faster in another site. If you wish to correspond further on this matter or any other off topic, please use 'contact us' page on http: Do you mind if I send you an email to the gmail id you have mentioned in your blogger profile?
Would prefer that rather than have my posted on the 'contact us' page. Rajesh, You can contact Arya Samaj, Hyderabad - http: It will be indeed very nice if efforts are made to prepare……. Similar action for other Vedas, Upanishads and other main dharma granths.
If copies could be made readily available in every district of INDIA as well as to common people it will be excellent for spreading the message of our great religion and culture. Read the book Rgvedaadibhasyabhoomika or its translation in English. This book created a revolution and finally even max muller had to change his views and come to the traditional conclusion that the Vedas are a wonderful piece of literature mankind should be proud of.
All Indian versions can be had from Arya samaj in your State.

It is strange and amusing. He could give only what is in the original. Below are give excerpts of a Wikipedia account of Griffith: Life He was born at Corsley, Wiltshire, on 25 May Griffith Chaplain to the Marquess of Bath , he was a B. He translated the Vedic scriptures into English. He also produced translations of other Sanskrit literature, including a verse version of the Ramayana and the Kumara Sambhava of Kalidasa.

On his retirement he withdrew to Kotagiri, a beautiful hill station, some feet high, in the Nilgiris district, Madras, residing with his brother Frank, an engineer in the public works department of the Bombay presidency, who had settled there in At Kotagiri he tranquilly engaged in the study and translation of the Vedas.

Each of the four Vedas consists of the metrical Mantra or Samhita' part and the prose 'Brahmana' part giving discussions and directions for the detail of the ceremonies at which the Mantras were to be used and explanations of the legends connected with the Mantras and rituals.

Translations of all four Vedas are from 'Sacred Texts of the East' series.
