                                                           Vedas the Scripture of universal knowledge.                                                                    
 
                                                                                         Harmony with God yields all round success perpetually.
                                                                           Imam stomam arhate jaata veda se ratham iva sam mahimaa maneesha yaa .                             
                                                                Bhadraa hi nah pramatih asya sam sad agne sakhye maa rishaamaa vayam    tava ..    Saam Veda 66           
                                                                                                       
    Commentary. 
  This Mantra propagates four kinds of instructions:
 
1. God is the cause of all causes of this Cosmos, The laws of Creation cannot be breached if success is hoped for.. Discard injustice and promote justice . 3 . Practice truth and discard falsehood . 4 Pains and poverty hinder progress.  
 
    God is the cause of all causes of this creation is a controversial theory since time immemorial; there are several schools of thought on this topic. We will discuss what the Vedas say of God, Creation and its purpose. This creation is made up of matter, matter is inert, and without any consciousness, this Creation is well designed, every force is intelligently placed in their respective orbit, they are independent from each other in attributes and purpose, they perform their chores complimenting each other, this universe is like a chain each force is like links of the chain, if any link goes bad, the equilibrium of the chain is disturbed, so with the Cosmos if any force performs abnormal, the equilibrium of nature is disturbed.
 
At the dawn of Creation God revealed the Vedas through inspiration to four of the best of the first batch of human beings. The Vedas say God took matter and extensively heat it, an extensive explosion followed the heating process, from the explosion space appeared, then wind followed, the sun came, water came then the earth, after a duration of time, the sun the oceans the planets the moons were fixed and placed in their right order and the cosmos from chaos started to function.
 
After a lengthy duration of time signs of life in the different planets started, plant life first appeared, amphibians ,reptiles, feathery creatures came then animals finally human beings came. 
There are a variety of species of creatures in this creation each specie of animate and inanimate forces has its own purpose and quality, there is no redundancy in nature which is God’s creation. Creation is a continued process in the plan of creation, because creation and dissolution are intertwined forces. God is the Creator of the laws of science. The laws which govern nature is called science or Dharma The dharma of the sun is to emit energy or Praana to sustain the different animate and inanimate species of the planets which evolve around it, the dharma of water is to cleanse and cool the planet the moon has it own dharma. The purpose of creation is for souls to do noble action to gain mukti or liberation and at the same time to give human body energy and to give souls the facility to develop the wisdom to know the difference between wrong and right, the teaching of the Vedas is in harmony with modern science
 
Justice and injustice.
 Justice is one of the principles which creates peace and prosperity in human society, Justice gives freedom to all humans and lower creatures alike, wherever justice is accurately dispensed there wisdom, wealth, freedom, and newness reign supreme. Justice destroys fear and violence in human society, justice is dispensed by the relative heads of society, and also God,   Injustice railroads all virtue from society, and cause despair, and all the vices you can think about. Injustice is the cause of world wars friction in homes and communities 
 
Truth and falsehood.
 Truth is regarded as the best principle for individual and collective success. Every moment in time so long as one is awake the question of right and wrong confronts a person, right represents truth and wrong represents falsehood. The Vedas defines truth as the laws of nature, truth is the principle which takes one to success, truth is the foundation of all that is good and great, truth is a standard quality in the past , at present and the future, truth under goes no revision, any machine or buildings if it built according to truth will function well and last for a long time, compounds are made proportionately, if they are made   according to truth will be more effective than the ones which are not truthfully compounded. 
 
There are two kinds of truth one natural and the other relevant, natural truth is upheld by nature or you can say God, relevant truth lasts so long as the need is there, the primary creation is natural like the laws of physics mathematic and chemistry, the sun moon water earth the law of gravity, rotation of the moon , high tides and low tides in the of the ocean etc, the secondary or relevant truth is changing as the need requires, going to war with two nation so long the war is on, the more killings go on and territories are conquered the better the feelings of gains are felt, but when their is no war, killings etc. are no longer regarded as truth. Everything which is made by man needs revision and refurbishing etc.
 
Pains and poverty.
 The individual souls are completely free from evil, and has full access and freedom to commune with God, imagine an electrical circuit has a shortage in its system, the circuit’s power to function becomes reduced, so with the connection or relationship with the universal soul [God] and the individual souls. Whenever an individual soul occupies a human body, the soul’s power is increased to think, in fact its mind -0`becomes so developed that it becomes second to God, the eyes, the ears, the nostrils, the tongue and the rest of the body send messages via the memory bank, and the intellect sends them to the soul, the soul through the intellect
messages become helpful to the soul, the bad ones cause short circuit in the communication with God and the good messages clear the circuit to communicate with God. 
 
Wisdom, every moment of time is sent to every human soul by the Almighty God short circuit system it will hear the messages, if a person throws a pebble in big pool of clear water that act will create a circle of wave 360 degree, so the messages of wisdom or God will reach out to all humans who is free from short circuit 
 
Pains and poverty are man made, they can be avoided, if the appropriate steps are taken to educate self and to take sufficient measure of discipline .
 
God is not malicious, He is perfectly just and merciful, He has given unto all humans full freedom to think speak and act, He gives the reward of every action, every thought and every word spoken . The individual person is responsible to mold his destiny and to free himself from pain and poverty.
 
 
                                                                                                                                Om
 
                                                   Man can do some things which God can do in a limited form.
 
                                                                                     Mahyam yajantu mama yaani havyaa aakutih satyaa manaso me astu.
                                                                                  Eno maa ni gaam katamach chan aham vishve devaaso adhi vochataa nah ..    Rigveda 10. 128. 4.
  Commentary
 Man must develop his soul with God- like qualities, his or her intention must be virtuous and intelligent, at no time in her or his life an evil act should be committed, become literally and morally educated, and
preach and teach the Vedas, that God does not want humanity to become beast like in quality. Why must humans develop God- like quality ?              
 
This creation is made by God and is governed by His laws, in order for humans to exist they have to interact with nature, for the needs and wants of all humans to be full filled, they will have to be taken from nature or the earth. There is a wrong way and right way in doing everything in this Cosmos the right way is called science and the wrong way is called ignorance . All human being are born ignorant, they have to be schooled.
 
God made science which are physics mathematic chemistry astronomy biology etc. these branches of science are for the physical needs and wants of the body, man has a soul he or she must be thought the principles of controlling the body mind and ego, by cultivating the qualities of non violence, societal truth, patience, live and let others live, the art of controlling anger, prevent covetousness jealousy and hate.
 
Evil is the cause of all kinds of destruction.
 
God made nothing evil so, no evil is tolerated in the plan of this cosmos, no animal does any evil, humans do evil because God has given man freedom to do what he or she likes, there are many kinds of evil , ignorance is evil,, and for not knowing the purpose of human birth,  
Not knowing the difference between God and nature, not paying any heed to public opinion, having the facility personally and not using it to help living creatures out of their helplessness, not giving assistance to develop public awareness to remove from the community the things which are considered anemic to the growth of civility, not helping to build institutions of learning and Dharma.
 
Learn, teach and preach the Vedas so that animal quality does not affect humans                                     
 
The first set of knowledge which we call scripture is called Veda was revealed to mankind at the dawn of creation, Veda means wisdom, wisdom is the cause of everything visible in this creation, God is the cause of wisdom, because God is perfect so, the Veda is perfect, perfection means time cannot alter or subtract anything which is perfect.
Time is perfect, the laws of nature is perfect, water is perfect, fire is perfect also wind, the earth is perfect, the principle of birth growth and death is perfect, this creation is a composition of various chemicals, decomposition must follow all composition, that does not mean the chemicals are lost
The Veda says every soul has the right to enjoy the freedom to live be it a human soul or lower kingdoms’ soul. Lasting success can only be successful if it is truthful and moral, only in unity with nature, with humanity, and the need at the particular time for something, can endure the onslaughts of human criticism and other phenomena.   
God made one race and that is the human race, males and females both have equal status in this cosmos, motherhood is the fashioner and fatherhood is the protector of everything which is made by human beings in this world.
 
 
                                                                                               Om
 
                                                                    Human beings are the deputies of God.
                                                                                                                Indram vardhanto apturah krinvanto vishvam aaryam.
                                                                                                                          Apaghnanto araabnah      Rigveda 9. 6 3. 5.
  Commentary
 This mantra says next to God in this Creation are human, human being   can do most things in this plan of nature in a very limited scope. Human beings’ mind are divided into four categories, teachers and thinkers, administrators, generators of wealth and thinkers or manual performers.
The Vedas calls on the four kinds of mind Brahman., Kshatri, Vaishya and Shudra
The Vedas calls upon all males and females of the teaching class to who live a morally well disciplined life to educate the other three categories of mind to perform so as to enhance wisdom and prosperity in the community. The Vedas calls on the administrators to establish justice and fairness protect life and property, protect the society or nation from foreign invasion, to the generators of wealth to generate enough wealth and succors for the growth of health comfort peace and sanity in the nation, and the technicians to manufacture articles and medicine which will give comfort and ease to the nation.
Our civilization today is practicing the same principles of the four kinds of minds as the Vedas advice, the monetary system today causes the system not to run as smooth as the culture requires, because the more money one gets the more he or she wants, this practice develops greed and imbalance and power mongers in our civilation.
In the Vaidic age there were no monetary system, their were the barter
 Salient thoughts from the Vedic \ Hindu Saints .

A person who chooses divine truth as his guidance becomes the choice of all, and the mentor of humanity.
 
A person of free will can only untie people who are lost in the prison of ignorance,
 
Victory and wealth gained by persons with unstable mind can use them to create havoc in society

The soul would not able to cleanse itself if he or she only develops the power of reasoning, but a combination of reason, justice and compassion do the magic.
 
Warmth and positive emotions remain steadfast in a person so long as he or she remains tranquil in their mind.
 
 Twins of nature like gains and losses, pleasure and pain, birth and death, give experience more than a teacher, in fact twins of nature is the best of all teachers. 
 
Nature has a lesson for all sane thinkers, a plan of life program is the first act, then, the execution of the plan is required, if either one is not followed properly, then success will be hard to obtain.

There is limitation in acquiring knowledge; unfortunately, there is no limitation to ignorance.
 
In the atmosphere rain clouds hold tons of water, when it is ready to rain it falls on the earth in fine drops and it is very pleasing. Similarly
Educated men are filled with wisdom, they also disperse their knowledge in simple terms for all to enjoy.
