HYMN TO EARTH BHUMI SUKTAM OF ATHARVANA VEDA (AV) CONTINUED

MANTRA 18 OUT OF 63

A beautiful prayer is in this mantra.

“Let no one hate me. Let me shine like gold”.

And note the adjectives “big and great speed of earth”.

Is it not amazing to see the attributes BIG EARTH, GREAT SPEED?

3000 years ago (date of AV 1000 BCE or before) there was no mobile phone or internet. Not much transport either between two places. And yet the poet describes “Earth! You are Vast and Mighty”.

“Your speed is also mighty”. Now only we know it rotates at the speed of 1000 miles per hour

“Consider the movement of the earth’s surface with respect to the planet’s center. The earth rotates once every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.09053 seconds, called the sidereal period, and its circumference is roughly 40,075 kilometers. Thus, the surface of the earth at the equator moves at a speed of 460 meters per second–or roughly 1,000 miles per hour”—Scientific American

And

“As schoolchildren, we learn that the earth is moving about our sun in a very nearly circular orbit. It covers this route at a speed of nearly 30 kilometers per second, or 67,000 miles per hour. In addition, our solar system–Earth and all–whirls around the center of our galaxy at some 220 kilometers per second, or 490,000 miles per hour. As we consider increasingly large size scales, the speeds involved become absolutely huge”- Scientific American

But this information was not available to anyone a few hundred years ago. Hindu saints knew it through their intuition or observation from space!

And let us continue with the same mantra……

The “Moving and Shaking of the Earth”- The Big Blue Marble!

Though Earthquakes are referred to in later Hindu scriptures and 2000 year old Sangam Tamil literature, AV poet also did not miss it.

And look at the beautiful prayer…..

O Mother Earth! MAKE US SHINE FORTH WITH THE BRIGHTNESS OF GOLD.

VEDIC SOCIETY WAS VERY RICH. Very rarely we see the word poverty. The reference to gold and golden jewellery are numerous. It was an agricultural society. Tamils wished everyone to live as many years as the number of stars or number of sand particles on the shore or as many as drops of rain. But one AV hymn says “as many as the grains”. It was a pukka agricultural community.

CHESS & MATHS

Vedic Hindus were great mathematicians. The whole world agrees that Chatur Anga, now known as Chess, is invented by the Hindus. One saint went to a king and taught this beautiful board game chess. The king was amazed and was ready to offer anything he asked. The Hindu saint smiled at him and said, “Not much, put one grain in square 1 of the chess board and then put 2 grains in square and go on doubling like this until you cover all the 64 squares on the chess board. The king thought that he could do it easily.

On the entire chessboard there would be 264 − 1 = 18,446,744,073,709,551,615 grains of wheat, weighing about 1,199,000,000,000 metric tons. This is about 1,645 times the global production of wheat (729,000,000 metric tons in 2014 and 780.8 million tonnes in 2019).”

No one would have thought it. Hindus were great geniuses. There are many secrets with numbers in the Vedas. Westerners who translated Vedas 150 years ago knew nothing about other fields. So, they ignored the big numbers as fancy numbers with no special meaning.

Now we know they were idiots and not scholars.

Look at the last request of the poet in this mantra…………..

LET NO ONE HATE ME.

Even God would hesitate to say YES to his request.

Every one of us falls in love with someone without any rhyme or reason. In the same way our boss in the office hates one person for no reason and loves or likes someone else for no reason. An actor known as MGR in Tamil film world was liked by millions of people. All women were after him. But he died without an issue! He even attracted an article in the Readers Digest magazine. Million uneducated, illiterate and educated used to wait all through the night to see him. He never came to the meeting right on time. Everywhere he was stopped by surging crowd. I believe it is due to his previous births as king or a popular emperor. God or a real Guru only can cancel any bad Karma from our previous births.

We are also subject to anger and jealousy. We say something in anger and the reactions follow us as like our own shadow. Hatred develops. One of the great Tamil saints is Ramalinga Swamikal also known as Vallalar of Vadalur. He prays to God Let me not hate anyone. Let others also not hate me. I don’t want to call any one You silly fellow! Dog or ghost (Tamil words rhyme with Chi/Nay/Pey)

Sanskrit words used in this mantra 18 are Mahat , Mahati, Mahaan, Hiranyam/gold, Mahaan Vega /great speed

And the poet concludes saying “such a beautiful earth is protected by UNERRING Inrda/God”.

Everything in the universe go by mathematical calculations. If there is a mistake that is one millionth of a fraction of a second, universes would collapse. Knowing this, poet says UNERRING god (Indra stands for God) protect the earth. It is very true. Space scientists knew this very well. A very small error will send the satellite billions of miles away from the target.

Here is the poem from Vallalar:-

  ஈயென்று நானொருவரிட நின்று கேளாத
        இயல்பு மென்னிட மொருவரீ
        திடுவென்ற போதவர்க் கிலையென்று சொல்லாம
        லிடுகின்ற திறமும் இறையாம்
    நீயென்று மெனைவிடா நிலையும் நானென்று முன்
        னினை விடா நெறியு மயலார்
        நிதியொன்று நயவாத மனமு மெய்ந்நிலை நின்று
        நெகிழாத திடமு முலகில்


    சீயென்று பேயென்று நாயென்று பிறர்தமைத்
        தீங்கு சொல்லாத தெளிவும்


        திரமொன்று வாய்மையும் தூய்மையும் தந்துநின்
        திருவடிக் காளாக்கு வாய்
    தாயொன்று சென்னையிற் கந்தகோட்டத்துள் வளர்
        தலமோங்கு கந்த வேளே
        தண்முகத் துய்யமணி யுண்முகச் சைவமணி
        சண்முகத் தெய்வ மணியே.
