From 13th October 2013 until 13th September 2017 , I wrote four articles about the Universal Prayers in the Vedas. Even before the Charter of the League of Nations said it, even before the Charter of the United Nations Organisation said it, Hindus said it !!!!

Said what?

Let there be peace in the world.

Let us be united.

Let the environment be pure and helpful to us!!

Some days back, after completing reading 10,552 mantras in the 1028 hymns of the Rig Veda, I entered into the Ocean of Atharva Veda.

Oh my God! Surprise! Surprise!

There I found another Universal Anthem.

All these are said and sung by our Rishis/ Seers thousands of years ago!

Even the half baked ‘scholars’ of the Western World date the Atharva Veda 1000 BCE and Rig Veda 2000 BCE. But the world’s greatest writer, greatest compiler Veda Vyasa who did an amazing feat of bringing all the 20,000 mantras together in the Four Vedas in four books say that he did it before 3102 BCE. So Hindus believe that he existed 5150 years before our time and he spread the Vedas from his days.

Hindus praise him as another Avatar of Vishnu and all sects of Hindus accept him as Guru and celebrate Vyasa Purnima as Guru Purnima in July every year. He was such an amazing organiser, selected four of his best students, and entrusted the work of spreading the Vedas by word of mouth. Another great wonder!

All the 20,000 mantras are spread by word of mouth in veda pata salas (Vedic Schools) and Shankara Mutts. His other great feat of writing 200,000 lines in Mahabharata including Bhagavad Gita’s 1400 lines is known to everybody. What an amazing brain!

Just read these prayers. Then you will agree with me that the Vedas must be protected, Vedas must be recited, and Vedic priests must be saluted and honoured.

If you have more time read my old articles (links are at the end of this article).

This is what I found a few days ago in Atharva Veda:

FROM ATHARVA VEDA:-

FOLLOWING IN GRIFFITH’S TRANSLATION(AV canto/book 3, hymn 30)

Freedom from hate I bring to you, concord and unanimity.
  Love one another as the cow loveth the calf that she hath borne.


2.One-minded with his mother let the son be loyal to his sire.
  Let the wife, calm and gentle, speak words sweet as honey to her   lord.


3.No brother hate his brother, no sister to sister be unkind.
  Unanimous, with one intent, speak ye your speech in friend-
   liness.


4.That spell through which Gods sever not, nor ever bear each
   other hate,
  That spell we lay upon your home, a bond of union for the
   men.


5.Intelligent, submissive, rest united, friendly and kind, bearing
   the yoke together.
  Come, speaking sweetly each one to the other. I make you one-
   intentioned and one-minded. 


6.Let what you drink, your share of food be common together,
   with one common bond I bid you.
  Serve Agni, gathered round him like the spokes about the
   chariot nave.


7.With binding charm I make you all united, obeying one sole
   leader and one-minded.
  Even as the Gods who watch and guard the Amrita, at morn and
   eve may ye be kindly-hearted.

xxxx

FOLLOWING IN MUIR’S TRANSLATION (AV canto/book 3, hymn 30)

1. Like-heartedness, like-mindedness, non-hostility do I make for you; do ye show affection the one toward the other, as the inviolable [cow] toward her calf when born.


2. Be the son submissive to the father, like-minded with the mother; let the wife to the husband speak words full of honey.


3. Let not brother hate brother, nor sister sister; becoming accordant , of like courses, speak ye words auspiciously


4. That incantation in virtue of which the gods do not go apart, nor hate one another mutually, we perform in your house, concord for [your] men


5. Having superiors (jyā́yasvant), intentful, be ye not divided, accomplishing together, moving on with joint labor (sádhura); come hither speaking what is agreeable one to another; I make you united (sadhrīcī́na), like-minded.


6. Your drinking (prapā́) [be] the same, in common your share of food; in the same harness (yóktra) do I join ⌊yuj⌋ you together; worship ye Agni united, like spokes about a nave.


7. United, like-minded I make you, of one bunch, all of you, by [my] conciliation; [be] like the gods defending immortality (amṛ́ta); late and early be well-willing yours.

FROM RIG VEDA:-

COMMON BE YOUR PRAYERS

COMMON BE YOUR END/ CONCLUSION

COMMON BE YOUR PURPOSE/AIM

COMMON BE YOUR DELIBERATIONS

COMMON BE YOUR DESIRES

COMMON BE YOUR HEARTS

UNITED BE YOUR INTENTIONS

PERFECT BE THE UNION AMONGST YOU

–R.V.10-191 3,4

RIG VEDA 10-191 (Last Hymn in the RV)

संस॒मिद्यु॑वसे वृष॒न्नग्ने॒ विश्वा॑न्य॒र्य आ ।

इ॒ळस्प॒दे समि॑ध्यसे॒ स नो॒ वसू॒न्या भ॑र ॥ १०.१९१.०१

सं ग॑च्छध्वं॒ सं व॑दध्वं॒ सं वो॒ मनां॑सि जानताम्

दे॒वा भा॒गं यथा॒ पूर्वे॑ संजाना॒ना उ॒पास॑ते १०.१९१.०२

स॒मा॒नो मन्त्रः॒ समि॑तिः समा॒नी स॑मा॒नं मनः॑ स॒ह चि॒त्तमे॑षाम्

स॒मा॒नं मन्त्र॑म॒भि म॑न्त्रये वः समा॒नेन॑ वो ह॒विषा॑ जुहोमि १०.१९१.०३

स॒मा॒नी व॒ आकू॑तिः समा॒ना हृद॑यानि वः ।

स॒मा॒नम॑स्तु वो॒ मनो॒ यथा॑ वः॒ सुस॒हास॑ति ॥ १०.१९१.०४

WHAT A GENIUS VYASA WAS! THE WHOLE GIST OF RIGVEDA WAS GIVEN IN THE ABOVE FEW LINES!

LET US SALUTE VEDA VYASA ONE BILLION TIMES!

Kanchi Paramacharya has beautifully summarised the Vedas in his Maitrim Bhajata song, sung at the United Nations by M S Subbulakshmi, that reverberated in the sky, land and ocean on that day, still echoing through the caves and mountain peaks of the Himalayas.
