Ten Families Compiled Rig Veda Details Apri Suktha


Vedas,the sacred texts of Hindus,were not written down ,nor are they attributed to any single author.

Veda means ‘ to know’

These were grasped from Ether by the Realized Souls,Rishis.

So the Vedas were not composed, but compiled by different Rishis.

Of the four Vedas,Rig,Yajur,Sama and Atharva,the Rig Veda was compiled by Ten Families.

They compiled the Apri Sukthas,the Hymns used in propitiating Deities before a Yagnya.

Details.

Of the ten Aprisuktas mentioned in Gargya Narayana’s commentary, I.13 and I.142 both invoke the Narāśaṁsa and Tanūnapāt manifestations of Agni, I.188, III.4, IX.5 and X.110 invoke only the Tanūnapāt manifestation and II.3, V.5, VII.2 and X.70 invoke only the Narāśaṁsa manifestation.

Answers To Doubts on Tharpana,Duty to Ancestors.


I received the the following query from a reader on Pitru Tharpana.

I have replied them in the chart below.

My information is based on Late. Sri.Anna Subrahmanya Iyer book Yajur Veda Sandhya Vandanam,available at RK Mutt book stores and at Railway stations.

One important query .

perform tharpanam facing eastward. But some say that we must face southward. Which is correct.?

Reply.

The procedure is to perform Madhyannika,Brahma Yagnya and then Tharpana.

Procedure for Sandhya Vandhana as per Sandhyavandana Procedure,so is for Brahma yagnya.

As to Tharpana,it is to be perfomed facing South.

Corrections/Suggestions welcome( with source)

Sl.No.

Doubts

Your kind advice

01

Normal Amavasai therpaman: SHOULD THIS BE PERFORMED  BEFORE NITYA POOJAI  OF AFTER THE NITYA POOJAI? 

 Before Nithya Pooja.Pitru Karyas take precedence over everything.

02

Sometimes, a festival and tharpanam come on the same day. IN SUCH CASES, SHOULD THIS BE PERFORMED  BEFORE NITYA POOJAI  OF AFTER THE NITYA POOJAI?    

 Tharpanam first.

03

Masa Pirappu Tharpanam :IN SUCH CASES, THARPANAM SHOULD BE PERFORMED  BEFORE NITYA POOJAI  OF AFTER THE NITYA POOJAI?    

 Tharpanam first.

04

Nithya Poojai, SHOULD NOT BE PERFORMED on the day of performing srardham for  my elders

 Can be performed after Sraddha.As  Sraddha is to begin by Noon,the Pooja can be done in the evening.

05

Nithya Poojai, SHOULD NOT BE PERFORMED on the day of performing Mahalaya srardham for  my elders

 Pooja can be done after Tharpana.

06

For performing any tharpanams, should  we add some raw rice [plain akshathai] to the sesame  or only sesame should be used?   

 Add Akshatha only on Fridays and on Festival days,if any.

07

During the tharpanam period, some use vibhuthi on their forehead and some do not. Which is correct

 Wearing of Vibuthi or Thirumann is by family traditions.Many use without mark. I do this way as it is our family tradtion.

08

I perform tharpanam facing eastward. But some say that we must face southward. Which is correct.?

Great Minds On Hinduism. From First Century AD Some Quotes


  •  I am reproducing some quotes by some of the most brilliant Scientists,Philosophers,Writers,Naturalists,Physicists,Astrnomers and Historians.

This list is not exhaustive,a sample.

 

‘In India I found a race of mortals living upon the Earth, but not adhering to it. Inhabiting cities, but not being fixed to them, possessing everything but possessed by nothing.’

– Philostratus, in his book Life of Apollonius of Tyana, recognized the experience of Apollonius in India, he writes that Apollonius described as above . (174 AD.)


No Indian ever went outside his own country on a warlike expedition, so righteous were they..

-Arrian,Roman Philosopher,Second Century AD.


I am convinced that everything has come down to us from the banks of the Ganges, – astronomyastrologymetempsychosis, etc… It is very important to note that some 2,500 years ago at the least Pythagoras went from Samos to the Ganges to learn geometry…But he would certainly not have undertaken such a strange journey had the reputation of the Brahmins’ science not been long established in Europe.’

-Voltaire,French Writer,Philosopher,Revolutionary Thinker (18th Century)

If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered over the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions of some of them which well deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant, I should point to India. And if I were to ask myself from what literature we who have been nurtured almost exclusively on the thoughts of Greeks and Romans, and of the Semitic race, the Jewish, may draw the corrective which is most wanted in order to make our inner life more perfect, more comprehensive, more universal, in fact more truly human a life… again I should point to India.

-Maxmueller, ( 19th Century)

The Hindu religion is the only one of the world’s great faiths dedicated to the idea that the Cosmos itself undergoes an immense, indeed an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths.
It is the only religion in which the time scales correspond to those of modern scientific cosmology. Its cycles run from our ordinary day and night to a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion years long. Longer than the age of the Earth or the Sun and about half the time since the Big Bang.”

-Carl Sagan,American Astronomer,Thinker,Science Fiction Writer,20th Century.

‘*  In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavat Geeta, since whose composition years of the gods have elapsed, and in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial; and I doubt if that philosophy is not to be referred to a previous state of existence, so remote is its sublimity from our conceptions. I lay down the book and go to my well for water, and lo! there I meet the servant of the Brahmin, priest of Brahma, and Vishnu and Indra, who still sits in his temple on the River Ganga reading the Vedas, or dwells at the root of a tree with his crust and water—jug. I meet his servant come to draw water for his master, and our buckets as it were grate together in the same well. The pure Walden water is mingled with the sacred water of the Ganga (Ganges).” 

-Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862)  American Philosopher, Unitarian, social critic, transcendentalist and writer. .

‘*There is no religion or philosophy so sublime and elevating as Vedanta.”

(source: Kumbha Mela – By Jack Hebner and David Osborn  p. preface – By Thomas Beaudry).

Schopenhauer became acquainted with the thought of the Upanishads through a Latin translation from Persian by a Frenchman, Anquetil Duperron.  His eulogy is well known.

*The Indian air surrounds us, the original thoughts of kindred spirits…..And O! how the mind is here washed clean of all its early ingrafted Jewish superstition! It is the most profitable and most elevating reading which is possible in the world.” 

-Schopenhauer, 

*’The writers of the Indian philosophies will survive, when the British dominion in India shall long have ceased to exist, and when the sources which it yielded of wealth and power are lost to remembrances.” 

Warren Hastings,Governor General of India, (1754-1826))

‘*All science is transcendental or else passes away. Botany is now acquiring the right theory – the avatars of Brahman will presently be the text-books of natural history.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson.

(source: India’s Priceless Heritage – By Nani A. Palkhivala 1980 p.9).

*’“It is already becoming clear that a chapter which had a Western beginning will have to have an Indian ending if it is not to end in self-destruction of the human race. At this supremely dangerous moment in human history , the only way of salvation is the ancient Hindu way.Here we have the attitude and spirit that can make it possible for the  human race to grow together in to a single family.” 

-Sir Arnold Toynbe,British Historian,20th Century.

What Is Yoga Upanishad, The List


Yoga means ‘Union’, that is connecting with the Reality, Brahman,the One with no attributes.In Saguna Upasna,worship of Reality with Attributes is practiced.

In fact it was Patanjali  who introduced the concept of Ishwara into otherwise worship of Reality as without Attributes or Nirguna Brahman.

When one analyses the  systems of Yoga, one would find some common characteristics as well as differences.

While the effort to realize Self  is common to all, the methodology differs.

Essentially , there are five aspects or components in Yoga.

e1386-clipboard01

1.Postures.

2 .Breath control.

3.Meditation, Dhyana,

4.Nada ,Sound,

5.Tantra.

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra deals more with Meditation or Dhyana,while the Siddhas emphasize Breath control,Vaasi Yoga.

I shall write more on this later.

And there seems to be some Deities or system of worshiping a specific God or Goddess.

We have, thus, Shaiva,Shakta,Vaishnava Yoga Upanishads.

And we have Samanya, common Yoga Upanishads for Gruhastha or householders and  Sannyasa Yoga Upanishads for the Renounced.

I have written on some of these Yoga Upanishads.

Shall write further.

Here is the list of twenty Yoga Upanishads.
