Rigveda preach delivered by His Holiness, Swami Ramswarupji, Yogacharya on 8TH MAY 2008
“BRIHADU GAAYISHE VACHO ASURYA NADEENAAM,
SARASWATEEMINMAHAYA SUVRIKTIBHIHI STOMAIRVASISHTH RODASEE” (Rigveda Mantra 7/96/1)
(VASISHTH) Oh learned person! (NADEENAAM) Amongst the worldly rivers there is one divine river which showers glories and other comforts and (ASURYA) mental and physical strength (VACHO) that river is Ved Vani. (GAAYISHE) So you chant and sing the Ved Vani (BRIHADU) and in the great (RODASEE) celestial bodies emitting light and earth you (MAHAYA) do worship (SARASWATEEM IT) only Saraswati i.e., Ved Vani (SUVRIKTIBHIHI STOMAIR) by performing the holy Yajyen.
Meaning: Oh learned person! Amongst the worldly rivers there is one divine river which showers glories and other comforts and mental and physical strength that river is Ved Vani. So you chant and sing the Ved Vani and in the great celestial bodies emitting light and earth you do worship only Saraswati i.e., Ved Vani by performing the holy Yajyen.
Idea: We must perform daily Yajyen/havan from Ved mantras which is a real worship of Ved Vani, which emanates direct from Almighty God. This is also a real worship of God.
God states in Rigveda mandal 7 sukta 96 that Oh learned persons! Worship the divine voice of Vedas which always bestows happiness on all and which never degrades any human-being nor gives sorrows.
Word “pooja” belongs to Sanskrit language which means to give respect, honour and praise. When we respectfully and with faith listen to Vedas and then follows Vedas in conduct by doing only pious deeds, this amounts to worshipping divine voice of Vedas. Further it is stated that this worship “Suvriktibhihi Stomaihi” is done through Yajyen. That is why Yajurveda states- “Yajyey Nidhnum” i.e., voice of Vedas is the wealth of Yajyen. The Yajyen is presided over by the Brahma. Brahma means the learned of all four Vedas. The Brahma explains the Ved mantras in simple language to the people. All the aspirants listen the Ved mantras while sitting in Yajyenshala (place where Yajyen is performed) and offer aahutis and ghee to the pious fire in havan kund and in this way worship God and Vedas’ voice.
Yaska Muni on the basis of Yajurveda mantra 1/1 states- “Yajau Vai Shreshthatamam Karmaha” i.e., the above stated Yajyen is the most supreme pious deeds in the world. It is while sitting in the Yajyen and listening to Vedas that one gains knowledge about each and every matter of the universe along with spiritualism and the aspirant accomplishes Finance (arth), Religion (Dharma), pious desires (Kaam) and final liberation (Moksha). Mantra states that by performing yajyen, the human-beings acquire two types of gains:
(1) Abhyudaya (2) Nishreyas
i.e., the aspirant who worships the divine voice of Vedas gains all the glory, assets, wealth in this world and at last attains final liberation. The divine voice of Vedas is unchallengeable and true. That is why Tulsi states in his Ramayan about Sri Ram:
KOTINAH VAAJIMEDH PRABHU KEENHE
DAAN ANEK DWIJANAH KAHAN DEENHE
i.e., Sri Ram performed innumerable yajyen along with Mata Sita and donated to Rishis. In the similar manner, all of us should also perform the worship in the form of Yajyen. So Yajyen is not a simple Yagya. Yajyen gives worldly as well as spiritual knowledge. Almighty God has ordered us in four Vedas to perform holy Yajyen to get worldly and spiritual knowledge to attain glories, comforts and salvation. So it is a sin if anybody else without studying Vedas tell that Yajyen is a simple deeds to attain swarg etc., only. And such a statement also goes against Almighty God.
