One of the most interesting Rig Vedic hymns is 7-18.
It is the 18th hymn in the Seventh Mandala of the Rig Veda.
There are twenty five verses/riks in it.

Seventh Mandala belongs to the family of Vasistha, author of one of the early Mandalas of the RV.
This is very interesting because of a simile about a lion, tricky numbers and various tribes. Scholars find it very difficult to understand the full hymn. Another puzzle is that it explodes some false notions. Suddenly River Jamuna is mentioned in the earliest parts of the Veda. Foreign “scholars” differ in interpretation which is not uncommon.

Puzzle 1
In the 14th verse of the hymn a number comes – sastih sataa sata sahasraa sastir adhi sat, literally six hundreds, six thousands, sixty, with six more.
Sayana and Wilson say sixty six thousand six hundred six 66606
Ludwig says 6666
Griffith says it is obscurely expressed
Whatever be the interpretation, look at the number 6 repeated several times! Does it really mean a particular number in a hymn like this or a symbolic hidden message or poetic style?


Puzzle 2
Yudhyaamadhi – is thought to be king’s name. But we don’t know the details!
Puzzle 3
Yamuna – Griffith says it is not east to see how the expedition reached so far.
Scholars, who blabber about “Aryan expansion” towards east, struggle hard to explain this River Yamuna! Scholars like Shrikant Talageri and others argue that the expansion was from East to West which is confirmed by this verse.

Puzzle 4
Griffith says – the Ajas, Sigrus and Yaksus were perhaps subject to Bheda, but nothing is known regarding them. Mysterious Bheda!!!

Puzzle 5
Sudaas, Divodaasa :– all Dasas are Indra’s friends!!! Vasishta’s men!! Foreign propaganda about Dasas is exploded in this and several other hymns where Dasyus and Dasas are supported by Indra!!!

Puzzle 6
In verse six there is a reference to “fishes urged by hunger”. Some scholars say they are not fishes. They are the Matsya tribe! (Matsya in Sanskrit means fish). So the scholars are not sure whether they are people or fishes!!


Puzzle 7
Verse number 6 refers to Turvasa Purodaasa. Scholars don’t know whether it is two people or one man with a surname; three different scholars interpret it in three different ways!!! In Vedic interpretation, scholarship means confusion!

One must be careful, when people quote the Vedas! They don’t know what they are talking about! No two clocks agree. No two “scholars” agree! They don’t believe in the Vedic culture. They have never lived in India! They don’t know how Hindus live! They don’t know why the Tamil Kings and North Indian kings donated huge quantity of gold and lands to Brahmins to pass this knowledge from generation to generation and never allowed the Vedas to put it in writing!!

Now look at the 38 words in the hymn:–
18.Kavas a
38.Matsyas (Fishes)


History behind the hymn:
The hymn glorifies Indra as the protector of Sudaas, the king of the Trstus and praises the liberality of the prince.

Vasistha, the Rsi/ sage of the hymn and the chief priest accompanied the war like expedition of Sudaas (note that Dasa has a priest, that too Vasistha! Is he a Dravidian Dasa? Or an Aryan Dasa?)

Ralph T H Griffith says,
“The poet begins to recount the events of Sudaas’s victorious expedition. These are not always intelligible partly on account of the obscure phraseology employed and partly on account of our ignorance of details which are vaguely alluded to. In this stanza Sudaas, king or chief of the Trstus tribe, has, with the aid of Indra crossed a deep river – the Parusni which is now called Ravi – and put the Simyus to fight, some of the fugitives being drowned in its waters. The Simyus are mentioned together with the Dasyus, in 1-100-18 as hostile barbarians slain by Indra. The second half of the stanza is difficult, the meaning of two of the words being uncertain”

At least Griiffith was honest enough to admit here “our ignorance”. So if anyone says anything against the Vedas, you don’t need to believe them. Nobody has understood it fully. No two scholars agreed on controversial matters. Just because some foreigners wrote something in English, don think they are all Scholars.


( I have read several books where they dub some as Demons and some as Dravidians and some as invaders and some others as non-Aryans. If you read the Rig Veda translated by three or four different authors you will enjoy the Aryan –Dravidian Jokes!! You can enjoy a hearty Laugh!!! Particularly the talk about Dravidian Indus Valley and the Aryan Vedic society!!!)
