So far, we have seen 23 topics where the four Vedas, particularly the oldest Rig Veda, shows amazing unity and continuity.

I have noted down nearly 50 topics where this occurs. Let us continue with topic 24.

24.MYSTERIOUS DADHIKRAVAN

Dadhikravan is a mysterious horse mentioned even in the Atharva Veda. It is not explained properly. One scholar said that ostrich birds were roaming India once upon a time and now became extinct. Others said that the unicorn shown in Indus seals is Dadhikravan.

25.THREE TIMES FIRE CEREMONY

Seers/Rishis did Fire Ceremony three times a day. This is also spoken of by the seers in all the four Vedas. Brahmins do three times water oblations even today. Three time Fire ceremony almost dead. I knew of only one gentleman, who was senior to me in Dinamani Newspaper did it till his death recently.

26.UNIQUE DAWN PRAYER and BATH

The uniqueness with the Vedic Prayer is they started doing it in the early morning. It is unique in the world. Though we know that Muslims also listen to the morning prayer call, that religion came many thousand years after the Vedas. And they do not take ceremonial early morning bath. Only Vedic Rishis did it. They considered Brahma Muhurtha (4 am to 6 am) is the best time for prayer.

27.GODDESS WORSHIP

Aditi is praised as the Mother of all Gods. Sarasvati , as river and Goddess of speech is found all over the Vedas. No modern religion worships Goddess, where as Hindus continue it till this day.

28.FLAG, SEASON, CALENDAR

Flag is mentioned everywhere. Flags originated in India. We see them in Mahabharata and Ramayana. Even Ravana had a flag. Six seasons or five seasons are mentioned. 12 month calendar is also seen in all the Mandalas.

29.MITRA/VARUNA, INDRA/AGNI

For some reason, we see Mira and Varuna are paired and Indra and Agni are paired. Scholars say they are like negative and positive nodes in electricity. Others see them as Shakti and Siva (Kinetic energy and Potential energy). This pairing is seen throughout the Vedas.

30.MYSTERIOUS LANGUAGE; REASON FOR OBSCURITY

Griffith makes at least one remark about obscurity or uncertainty every other page in his Rig Vedic translation. The reason for this so called obscurity is the seers used mysterious, coded language. In one or two places they themselves said that thy like using mysterious language. In other places they talk about mystery names of Gods or men

31.DHARBA GRASS, INVOKING

Amazing thing is all the rishis invoke the gods on Dharba grass. They say ‘The Grass is spread; come and take a seat please’. This becomes more amazing to me because I do the same when I invoke the departed souls in the Dharba grass at least once a month. An orthodox Hindu does it over 90 times every year (Sorry to say I do it only 20++ times in a year)

32.MUSIC LOVERS

Gods are addressed as Music lovers. There is no wonder that we trace the origin of Indian music in Sama Veda; that Veda is nothing but Music. This word Music lover is also there in the four Vedas.
