PREAMBLE TO TODAY'S veD LESSON

At Prajaapati Vishva Aashram Foundation (PVAF) entire humanity has a universal forum to share their knowledge about this creation called the universe and the life that is lived in this universe.

This knowledge is vital for the well-being and welfare of each individual human and also the human collective in the form of family, community, nation, race, organization, agency, government, religion, and its infinite sub-forms. These collectives of humans are further divided into distinct collectives of human activities. Thus the human collectives are infinite in number. But the bottom line for each human collective has three basic daily objectives:

  1. To create all that it needs;

  2. To sustain all that it creates;

  3. To continually re-create the creation and sustainance so that the collective perpetuates itself in time domain in different evolutionary names and forms.

In order to carry out these daily activities humans need knowledge about how this creation is created, sustained and continually recreated. Such knowledge comes through different mediums which are all  sciences of different kinds. All these sciences exist interactively as all the three life perpetuating daily activities have a unity of purpose - to perpetual creation and life.

PVAF presents this knowledge to empower each human to exist to its maximum potential and to harmoniously co-exist with the rest of the humanity and all creations without loosing one's distinct identity and purpose in life.

PVAF presents this knowledge in the form of TODAY'S veD LESSON. veD is a word in sNskRUt language which is the oldest known language on this planet earth and all the different languages seems to have roots in sNskRUt. veD means knowledge of sciences of creation and life.

These knowledge presentations are gathered from all available sources with only one purpose of dissemination: TO MAKE YOUR TOMORROW HAPPIER AND PROSPER THAN TODAY.....

 "WE play the notes as they are written,
but it is God who makes the music.
"
- J.S. Bach



As I was walking down life's highway many years ago
I came upon a sign that read

Heavens Grocery Store.

When I got a little closer the doors swung open wide

And when I came to myself I was standing inside.

I saw a host of angels.

They were standing everywhere.
One handed me a basket and said
"My child shop with care."

Everything a human needed was in that grocery store

And what you could not carry you could come back for more

First I got some
Patience.

Love was in that same row.

Further down was
Understanding,
you need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of
Wisdom

and
Faith a bag or two.

And
Charity of course I would need some of that too.

And then some
Strength and Courage to
help me run this race.

My basket was getting full but I remembered
I needed
Grace,

And then I chose
Salvation for Salvation was for free.
I tried to get enough of that to do for you and me.

Then I started to the counter to pay my grocery bill,
For I thought I had everything to do the
Masters will.

As I went up the aisle I saw
Prayer and put that in,
For I knew when I stepped outside I would run into
sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful, the last things on the shelf.

Song and Praise were hanging near so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel:
"Now how much do I owe?"

He smiled and said:
"Just take them everywhere you go."

Again I asked:
"Really now, How much do I owe?"

he said
"
My child, God paid your bill a long long time ago."

....veD...
 
...the eternal knowledge of... 
....creation...

 ...veD...
has
  ....no beginning....
 ....no middle....
 and
 ....no end...

om bRH`myae nmH.....

veD is the knowledge of the entire creation. veD imparts to each and every creation how creation is created, how it is sustained after creation, the purpose of each creation, how each creation has to co-exist with all other creations and the grand scheme and meaning of this creation. In this process of imparting knowledge veD also subtly informs about our creator bRH`m and the bRH`m's relationship with all creations singly and collectively.

To get all knowledge through the study of veD is a monumental task ...which could not possibly be completed in one life time...in a life time most of us can get only a degree in one field of science or arts or commerce or medicine or engineering....to get all the knowledge of ved will take infinite years as the knowledge itself is infinite....

.....But then our creator bRH`m, knowing our limitation of the life cycles, has given us a small life manual in which the basics of creations, its processes, its relationships and its purpose are outlined in about 700 to 750 aphorism like messages of few words at a time......this manual of life is has been given a name "bhgvD giitaa"....Similarly for those who desire to have detailed knowledge veD has 14 major viD`yaa. A viD`yaa is a specific knowledge base similar to what we currently know as engineering, medicine, law, mathematics, astronomy, astrology, grammar......and all the vidyaa is in 4 veD, 6 veDNgaa, 108 upniSHD and 108 puraaANo......

....Prajaapati Vishva Aashram Foundation (PVAF) has a primary mandate to facilitate all humans to acquire knowledge per se...PVAF believes that studying any part of veD is a good start on this path to acquire knowledge...so let us pray that we study daily ...om tt st...

At present on this planet earth we have various faith systems leading to a Creator...each faith systems has its own name and also a name for whatever it believes as a Creator....but surprisingly all faith systems have one message to all its follower...knowledge shall set you free....let us then get this knowledge....may the Creator bless us to walk on this path no matter how we stumble, fall or sometimes give up....but we are continually blessed by our Creator to have the strength and the means to get up once more and keep walking....in the pursuit of knowledge....

....om tt st........om shaanti shaanti shaanti...
