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
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:
To create all that it needs;
To sustain all that it creates;
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:

- 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.
was in that same row.
Further down was Understanding,
you need that everywhere you go.
I got a box or two of Wisdom
a bag or two.
of course I would need some of that too.
And then some Strength
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
As I went up the aisle I saw
Prayer and put that in,
For I knew when I stepped outside I would run into
were plentiful, the last things on the
were hanging near so I just helped
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?"
child, God paid your bill a long long time ago."

...the eternal knowledge of...
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
.....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
....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
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
