this is a non- commercial blog. Thanks for your great pictures.,

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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)


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.

“ Yatra naryast pujyante ramante tatra devatah

Yatraitastu na pujyante sarvastatraphalah kriyah”

Manu smriti 3-56, Mahabharata 13-45-5

‘Where women are worshipped, there the gods are delighted; but where they are not worshipped, all religious ceremonies become futile’—Manu Smriti.

One acharya/Guru excels ten Upadhyayas/teachers in glory; a father excels 100 acharyas/Gurus in glory; but a MOTHER excels even a thousand fathers in glory (Manu 2-145)


Hinduism is the only religion in the world where woman is worshipped as Goddess from the days the oldest Veda until today. In other religions God is He, but in Hindu religion God is worshiped as He and She from the Vedic days. The beauty of Hindu religion is that the same goddesses are worshiped continuously until today. Though we heard many names of goddesses in in the Middle East, Egypt and Europe (Greek and Rome) all those goddesses were sent to Museums. The most powerful mantra Gayatri is in all the three Vedas. Goddesses Gayatri, Savitri and Sarasvati are worshipped from Vedic days and they are very popular names of girls from Northern Himalayas to Southern Most parts of Sri Lanka.

Here is a list of Goddesses from the Vedas:–

1.Usas (dawn)—Most beautiful description of Usas is found in the Vedas in many hymns.

2.Sarasvati — River and Goddess; praised in many hymns

3.Prithivi  – Earth (Greeks and others followed this Hindu concept)

4.Ratri (RV 10-107) – Called daughter of Heaven

5.Vac (personified speech) – RV 10-125

6.Purmandhi (Goddess of Plenty)  – Her name occurs nine times in the Oldest Book Rig Veda

7.Parendi(Goddess f Riches and abundance) –

8.Dhiisanaa  (Goddess of Abundance) – mentioned at least 12 times

9.Ilaa (Goddess of Nourishment) Personification of the offering of milk and butter, meaning plenty. Her name is very common among girls. She is mentioned at least 10 times in the Rig Veda. She is also known as the daughter of Manu or Mitra- Varuna in the Satapata Brahmana


10.Brhaddivaa- Occurs at least four times. She is called mother and mentioned with Ila (RV 10-64-10), Sarasvati and Raka.

11.Raka – Bountiful goddess Raka is mentioned at least twice (RV 2-32-7, 5-42-17)

12.Sinivaali _ She is mentioned in two hymns (2-32; 10-184). She is invoked with Sarasvati and called as wife of Vishnu. She is sister of the gods, broad hipped, fair armed, prolific and a mistress of the family. She is implored to grant off spring.

13.Kuhu (Personification of New Moon). Raka and Sinivaali are also connected with the phases of the moon

14.Prsni – The mother of Maruts

15.Saranyu (10-17-2)- Occurs once in the RV; Tvast’s daughter married to Visvat

16.Indrani – Wife of Indra

17.Varuni- Wife of Varuna

18.Agnayi – Wife of Agni


(This type of Sanskrit naming exists until today among Hindu families: Bhava=Bhavani, Shiva= Shivan, Vishnu=Vasihnavi etc)

20.Asvini= Wife of Asvins is mentioned once

21.Suryaa is also mentioned



24.Aditi:Aditi is an ancient Goddess to express the infinite and boundlessness. She is mentioned about eighty times in the Rig Veda. The concept of her motherhood is found in many words such as dyaur-aditih, aditeh putrah. Her children were Adityas. Aditi is connected with light.

God and Goddess sharing (Ardhanaree)

ardhanaree with two vahanas

Ten Mandalas of the Rig Veda have Apri Suktas where Bharati, Sarasvati and Ila are invoked. In some, Bharati is replaced with Mahi.

Al other are invoking Bharati, Sarsvati and Ilaa.

There are over twenty poetesses among the Rig Vedic poets or “composers” ( Vedas are “heard” like we hear radio wavelengths on the receivers; not “composed”. Like Newton’s Laws of Motion, they exit whether we discover them or not. Vedas are eternal)

Along with the names of poetesses, the goddesses form the biggest group of esteemed women in any known ancient civilization. The latest date accepted for the Rig Veda is 1700 BCE. We have not heard such a big group of women in any other civilization around that time. All the Vedic metres are given women’s names. All the rivers are given women’s names in the Vedas: Ganga Sindhu, Sarasvati and Yamuna etc. All the good virtues are given the names of women in the Vedas such as Kirti, Karunaa and Shanti.

And of feminine forms I am fame(Kirti), prosperity (Sri), speech (Vac), memory (Smrti) , intelligence (Medha), firmness(Dhrti) and patience (Kshama).—Bhagavad Gita—X-34
