Adi Shankara, one of the great philosophers, says that gods (Devas) left the earth after becoming fed up with the demands of the human beings. They lost their character and made too many demands and so the Devas vacated the earth, says Shankara.

 

In the Taiitiriya Brahmana we read that “ the gods obtained their divine rank by austerity” (12-3-1)

In the Satapata Brahmana (3-2-6-26) we read that Gods left human beings on earth and went away:

“Both gods and men and fathers drink together. This is their symposium. Formerly they drank together visibly; now they do so unseen”.

Gods and men, together, were both originally components of this world. Whatever men had not, they asked from the gods, saying,

We have not This; let us have it. From the dislike of this solicitation, the gods disappeared saying, each of them,

‘Let me not hurt them, let me not be hateful’- Satapata Br.2-3-4-4

 

GODS KNOW THE MIND OF MAN

“ The gods know the intentions of a man. They are aware that he contemplates the performance of this rite, and will make his offering in the morning; and consequently, they all come to his house and abide there. The gods know the mind of man”.

–Satapata Br. 2-1-1-7

 

“The gods are secreted from men and secret also is what is enclosed on every side; this is why they enclose it on every side. Not every one may enter it, but only a Brahmin, a Kshatria or a Vaisya, for these are able to sacrifice. Let him not commune with everyone; for he who is consecrated draws nigh to the gods, and becomes one of the deities. Now the gods do not commune with everyone, but only with a Brahmin, a Rajanya (kshatria) or a Vaisya (businessman), for these are able to sacrifice. An intermediary is necessary to talk with a Sudra—Sata. Br. 3-1-1-8/10

 

“He who sacrifices, doubtless sacrifices with a desire that he also may also obtain a place in the world of the gods. That sacrifice of his then goes forth towards the world of the gods”- 1-9-3-12

MYSTIC LANGUAGE

Half baked, jaundice eyed, biased and stupid foreigners tried to find fault with every Vedic mantra. Those idiots were so cunning that they wanted to create confusion and doubts in the minds of Hindus and destroy Hinduism. Every religious scripture has lot of controversial, absurd and idiotic sayings ( if you look at it with coloured glasses and biased mind) and these white skinned scholars and their  friends– Marxist stooges– never touched any religious book in the world except Hindu scriptures; they never criticised anything in those books; this shows their motives. This shows their true colours. They were paid coolies!

 

One must be careful when one reads the English translations of the Vedas or Brahmanas by those biased minds. Some key words are translated according to their whims and fancies. If you read the 41 interpretations of ASURA by 41 idiots you will understand how stupid they were. If you read the book Minor Vedic Deities by Joshi, you will know how they differ in their interpretation; he beautifully summarises in the very first paragraph who said what. It is like the 53  different interpretations of Indus Valley script!!!!

 

Above all these things Vedic seers say they love mystic language. If you take the literal meaning you will laugh at them. And they will have the last laugh!

“The gods love the mystic” is a phrase that occurs in several places in the Rig Veda, the oldest book in the world and most of the Brahmanas.

 

Here is one example:

Bhaga, Pushan are minor Vedic deities.

Pushan lost his teeth; Bhaga lost his eyes!

 

“They took it round to Bhaga, who sat on the south side. Bhaga (Savitri) looked at it. It burnt out his eyes. And thus it came to pass. Hence they say Bhaga is blind. They said—- take it to Pushan! They accordingly took it round to Pushan. Pushan tasted it. It knocked out his teeth. And thus it came to pass. Hence they say Pushan is toothless – Satapata Brahmana 1-7-4-6/7

 

Gods have cars; Asuras don’t have!

“The gods drove about on wheels (cars, carts)and the Asuras stayed at home”

 

“At first the gods were all alike, all good. Of them being all alike, all good, three desired,

May we be superior! Agni, Indra and Surya.

They went on praising and toiling… they became superior, even as they are now superior – Sata. Br. 5-4-1-2

Probably the Vedic seers tell us that whoever works hard, whoever pursues something will achieve it.

Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration—they say!
