Emperors and Kings of India have contributed hugely to the Vedic Brahmins to spread the Vedas. Even the Buddhist Emperor Asoka had given priority to Vedic Brahmins. In all his inscriptions Brahmins come first and then Sramanas are mentioned. Buddha had praised the Brahmins in his Dhammapada. Tamil kings not only did Rajasuya and Asvamedha Yagas but also donated lands, gold and money to Brahmins according to Sangam Tamil literature (see Pathitrup Pathu) and thousands of temple inscriptions.

Bharatiyar, the greatest of the modern Tamil poets, has praised Vedas sky high and asked us to spread the Vedas.

Why did they do it?

We see Liberty, Equality and Fraternity in the Vedic mantras.

The Rishis/seers address the gods as FRIENDS! In hundreds of Mantras, they address the Gods as friends and call their colleagues, Comrades!

Oft repeated similes refer to the affection between Father and son. They did not miss the love and affection between husband and wife. Those who read the Vedas will be benefitted by these positive phrases in the Vedas. Here are some examples. The three numbers denote the Chapter/Hymn/Mantra.

(Rig Veda has over 1000 hymns and over 10,000 mantras.)
