The oldest book in the world is Rig Veda if we accept the date of Herman Jacobi and Bala Gangadhara Tilak who independently dated Rig Veda between 4000 and 6000 BCE on the basis of astronomical references in the Rig Veda.

BARC carbon dating of underground water in the Sarasvati River basin and NASA’s images of dry beds of Sarasvati river also scientifically proved a date around or before 2000 BCE for the Rig Veda.

The Aitareya Brahmana and the Aitareya Aranyaka of the RV have some references to a teacher named ‘Mr.Gold tooth’ – Hiranya Dant. Keith and Macdonell in their 1912 publication of the two volume Vedic Index also noticed it and wrote that it was a reference to gold tooth. In spite of this, encyclopaedias mentioned Etruscans were the first in fixing golden teeth.

Gold was widely used in India which is proved by the innumerable references in the Vedic literature. Keith and Macdonell point out rich Vedic Hindus have Gold cups, ear rings, neck plates, gold tooth, coins etc.

Even Herodotus mentioned about the mysterious ‘Giant Ants’ entering the ground to pick up gold in India. He mistook the name of term for miners as Giant Ants. Indians are very familiar with Fish people (matsya desa) sugarcane people (Ikshvakus), Kumba karnas, Lamba Karnas etc. Poor Herodotus didn’t know it.

Following pages were taken from Vedic Index. Hindus must rewrite the history of science.

DANTA – DENTAL – DENTISTRY
JATA RUPA = GOLD

SUVARNA – GOLD

Hindu civilisation has reached its pinnacles during Vedic period itself.

They wrote the first grammar book and they taught grammar in the Vedic school. And even before Panini of seventh century BCE , they had  umpteen grammarians. We were fortunate enough to get the Book of Panini (Seventh Century BCE), but others were lost.

 

We wrote the first Nikandu /Thesaurus and we added the Contents and Index to the Vedas, Even the law book written by Manu, was earlier than Hammurabi who lived in 2600 BCE. The latest version of Manu Smrti, we have today is from second century BCE. Since the name of Manu occurs several times in the RV. Manu refers to Sarasvati river, we know he lived at the time of Sarasvati’s mighty flow. Now due to the satellite picture from NASA and Carbon-14 dating of the underground water by the Bhaba Atomic Research Institute, the date of Sarasvati’s disappearance is fixed 2000 BCE or earlier. So Manu who wrote the original book must have lived well before that. He never mentioned Sati, like the RV. During Vedic period, there was no Sati/widow burning. So the original Manu Smrti belongs to Rig Vedic period. This is confirmed by his definition of Brahmavarta and Aryavarta (Manu Chapter 2). He mentioned the rivers Drsadvati and Sarasvati. Aryas included all the four Varnas/castes according to Rig Veda (10-90).

 

All the anti Shudra verses in the Manusmrti are added to it during the Sunga period. Sunga Kings were Brahmins. Anyone who reads Manu from top to bottom could easily find the interpolated portions. They go against the natural flow of Manusmrti. They are not only controversial but also contradictory.

Beautiful Vedic Index

Katyayana who lived before 600 BCE counted all the hymns, mantras, syllables in the Rik Veda and prepared the Anukramani/ Index. He did a painstaking research and counted everything in the Vedas, leaving no scope for interpolation or corruption.

 

Sarvanukramani (Rig Vedic Index) of Katyayana gives the first word of each hymn, the number of the verses, the name and the family of the poets, the names of the deities and the metres of the verses. Saunaka did another anukramani based on the Anuvakas.

Yajur Veda has three anukramanis .

And we have anukramanis for Sama and Atharva Veda as well, one each.

It is strange that someone had such a scientific approach 2600 years ago, when most of Europe was semi civilised or barbaric. If some society has reached the heights of philosophical thought around 850 BCE (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad), no wonder they have mastered numbers grammar, linguistics and language.

Significance of 432,000

The number of syllables in the Rig Veda is 432,000.

This number has a great significance in Hinduism

The total number of years in Kali Yuga is 432,000 years. Other Yugas have the multiple of this number.

Half baked and biased foreigners argued that Yuga cycles and the big numbers are added to Hindu scriptures later. Now this number 432,000 and the very big numbers in the Brahmanas prove them wrong

Katyayana’s count of Verses in the RV is 10,662 (minus the appendix- 10,402)

The words in the RV – 1,53,826

We have lost lot of our Vedic literature. Even during Vyasa’s time (3100 BCE+), Vedas had become very bulky and unmanageable. So he divided it into four (Rik, Yajur, Sama and Atharvana) and gave the responsibility of teaching it to the future generations by the word of mouth. It is great wonder that tradition has been maintained until today. Brahmins deserve great admiration for doing this wonderful task.

Even with all the google, internet and computers in our hands,we find it difficult to analyse all the 20,000 plus mantras in the four Vedas, leave alone the very huge Brahmana literature.

Let us salute the great Vedic Seers and the Brahmins
