Most of the time it is not very easy to realize even some simple truths about
life. A lot of times it takes really many hard knocks in life to realize a
A truth is some scientific fact which let us see the reality behind anything
life . For example, now we know the truth about smallpox - that it is
called by a germ which if avoided or immunized against will not disfigure you or
even kill you. Small pox as we all know was an epidemic which is now practically
wiped out from our lives.
I am 55 years old. I am an engineering graduate and
have done well for the last 33 years in the engineering corporate world to the
extent of having my own business. I do not remember ever struggling in my
It was only about 10 years or so ago that I realized that I seem to
always struggle in non-engineering part of my life. And that includes just about
everything beyond 8 works of daily work life. Then somehow though grace of Bhagvan,
Ved entered my life
and the struggles seems to be lessening day by day.
Now I have realized that if
I had not had engineering education then I would have struggled in doing
engineering works too. And that is the reason why I was struggling in life - because
I did not have education about life through life sciences.
The education about life is in Ved. Life science is Ved.
Life sciences in Ved are based on philosophies of all creations in this
teaching and study of Ved has been now "lost" for a long time.
The starting sloks in Chapter 4 of Bhagvat Gita says so.
We know about Ved
through our genetic memory and the Vedic lifestyle we copy from our
parents, relatives and Vedic community. We practice Ved through our genetic
memory and by association with Vedic peoples.
last 500 years, Ved is coming back to life in the form of some very rudimentary
sciences of how the world and the nature we exist in functions and relates to us
as humans depending on nature. But the current sciences have
only taken only baby steps in search for this knowledge of the physcial world we live in.
Physical sciences have a long way to go.... especially in emotional and
Some knowledge of Ved has been preserved in Sanskrit language write-ups existing
among Vedic peoples. Vedic peoples are generally found in the current times in
the eastern parts of this planet earth. I believe from Vedic study and
recent archeological finds that the entire humanity was Vedic once upon a
time. These Vedic writings have no known
dates. But when one starts studying Ved one realizes that Ved is also an
operating and maintenance manual that our Creator gave us when He created us -
the human kind. It
is no different than our computer or car or refrigerator manual. One also
realizes in Ved study that Ved is universal sciences and has not
connotation of the word "religion" as is normally interpreted and
expressed by different peoples in the last 2500 years.
One of the essential features about Ved is that you can only learn Ved by
living by Ved. This also means that Ved is taught by life itself. Saying this
Ved was traditionally learned by studying and discussing with live people
and people learned in Ved.
Discussion is also a teacher.
I am hoping that with this fine new message board,
we all Vedic people will be able to learn and teach each other Ved to
alleviate our life struggles. If you are a trained swimmer you would know that a
swimmer, however good, if he struggles in water is sure to drown. I hope to hear
from my fellow "strugglers" in life.
Prajapati Vishva Ashram is presently compiling Ved knowledge to go on this
web site. There is some Ved articles on the web pages. Please keep on visiting
the Ved pages on this web site as there is more Ved coming to these pages soon.

Prayer from Champaklal Dajibhai Mistry:
May Bhagvan help me in doing my daily panch maha-yagna so that all the Devo are
nourished and in turn they will nourish me to serve Bhagvan forever as his
