Vyasa and Vedas
Posted on Oct 5 2011
(Includes discussion on Buddha, Dattatreya, Guru Purnima, the Vedas, ME, Enki, significance of full moon and rain)
It is believed that humans did not compose the revered compositions of the Vedas because these writings were based on what God had revealed in the Confluence Age, at the End of the previous Cycle. This knowledge which God is giving us, in the Confluence Age, is not something that God had created. It is the Truth and He is revealing the Truth. This knowledge always existed from time immemorial. It is neither created nor destroyed. It always exists. In the Confluence Age, God reveals it for the re-creation of the deities. This is why the Vedas are also considered as the word of God or that it was given directly from God. In the Confluence Age, one needs to be in the pure soul-conscious stage so as to understand the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge.
It is believed that the spiritual teachings of the Vedas were handed down, by word of mouth, from time immemorial because of what happens at the beginning of the Copper Age. The Copper Age is connected to the Confluence Age. Through this connection, those who had walked out of the divine world, at the end of the Silver Age, got to know of what had happened at the End of the previous Cycle when God gave this spiritual knowledge for the creation of the deities. They informed everyone of it, orally. It was only later, in the Copper Age, that everything began to get put into writing. More on this is discussed at:
1. Ancient Sciences in the Hands of a Few
2. ME in the Sumerian Tablets and in Ancient Times
It should be noted that the computerised machines, at the end of the Silver Age, were not giving information in written form like how it is today. The computerised machines were giving information through the spoken form. The computerised machines were in the hands of a few. Those who got this information from the computerised machines gave the information, to others, orally. When the usage of the sciences were restricted, all information were handed down by word of mouth, until a later time when everything was slowly put into writing.
There was no writing in the Golden and Silver Ages. Languages were only spoken there. Since people drew in the Golden and Silver Ages, the first 'writings' created, in the Copper Age, looked like as if pictures were used to convey the messages. In the Golden and Silver Ages, computerised machines stored and orally gave whatever information that was requested for. Thus, writing only got created at the beginning of the Copper Age for putting everything, that were in the computerised form etc, into writing.
What was perceived through my past birth (who had walked out of the divine world), and by others, was also originally handed down by word of mouth. The information, that were recorded into the Vedas etc, were got through the ME and also through what was perceived and understood during the enlightened state. Thus, there is a general assumption that the Vedic hymns were either taught by God to the sages or that the Vedas revealed themselves to the sages who were the seers or “mantradrasta” of the hymns. Whatever was perceived (of the spiritual knowledge that was revealed in the previous Confluence Age) got put into the written form of the Veda. "Veda" means knowledge, wisdom or vision. The Vedas were said to be mainly compiled by Vyasa around the time of Krishna because it relates to the time when God came to re-create Krishna.
Vyasa is said to have divided the knowledge of the Vedas into four parts, based on their use, and he is said to have taught them to his four chief disciples who were Paila, Vaisampayana, Jaimini and Sumantu. He taught the Rig Veda to Sage Paila, Sama Veda to Sage Jaimini, Yajur Veda to Sage Vaisampayana, Atharva Veda to Sage Sumantu and he entrusted them to teach it to the world. In the Sumerian myths, Enki is also portrayed to have done a similar thing with the contents of the ME. You can read something about it at:
1. Enki and the Abgal
2. ME in the Sumerian Tablets and in Ancient Times
Both Enki and Vyasa were portrayed in this way because :
1. in the Copper Age, those who played the role of Enki and Vyasa made sure that there was a system through which the information was handed down,
2. the people in the Copper Age were influenced to do that which happens in the Confluence Age, at the End of the cycle.
Vyasa was portrayed as having passed on information as the Guru of gurus. This reflected how, in the Confluence Age, God got the information passed on to others, and to the later generations, through those who are considered as the Confluence Aged teachers.
In the Confluence Age, at the End, God also gives knowledge based on the group which is in front of him. Since different groups are involved with different kinds of service etc, they are given knowledge accordingly. This is why there are differences in the spiritual knowledge of the BKs and the PBKs. The BKs are involved with making sure that the 900,000 souls are ready for world transformation. The PBKs and others are involved with walking into the divine world. There are also other groups outside the Brahma Kumaris who are involved with service related to the Mapmaker role etc. The Global Brahma Kumaris is about this world service involving the Mapmakers. There are also BKs doing service in different kinds of ways and they are also given spiritual knowledge based on the service which they are involved with. All this has been portrayed in the myths through Enki and Vyasa giving different knowledge to different people.
The various groups are also represented by Vyasa's children. However, Vyasa's children represent more than the groups because they represent :
1. God's helpers at the End, of the Cycle, who will be playing different roles relating to the bringing-in of the divine world (represented through Pandu and his children, the Pandavas)
2. God's helpers at the End, of the Cycle, who will be playing different roles relating to the bringing-in of the one world government (represented through Vidur, Bhishma etc) and the 'walking-in process'. Vidura represents the intelligent people who will be involved with the Confluence Aged work while remaining in the outside world (like the politicians, scientists and others).
3. God's Confluence Aged children, and others, who are in a confused state because of a bad spiritual stage and who are, thus, sometimes/often/always blind to the Truth (represented by Dhritarashtra). So, they have to be informed by someone else as to what the Truth is.
4. the imperfect children born, at the beginning of the Copper Age, so as to begin the new imperfect ordinary human race who will connect themselves to the previous Confluence Age through the Copper Aged life-dramas etc (relating to the Confluence Age, the End and the beginning of the Cycle). Thus, the Confluence Aged people are seen as their ancestors.
The Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge is also edited and given based on what the group (which is being given the knowledge) can accept. This was also why the ancient people used the name Vyasa for this role. Vyas means to divide and to edit. But then, the name Vyasa had emerged based on memories of this name being explained in the Confluence Age, as I am doing now. Thus, the word Vyas began to mean 'to divide and to edit'. The memories emerge because Vyasa is an immortal role. The role of Vyasa always exists in the Copper Age and the Confluence Age. Vyasa is an immortal role because the Copper Age is connected to the Confluence Age. The fruit of the Confluence Age is enjoyed in the first half cycle; and that which is begun in the Copper Age continues until the End of the cycle. Through this, immortality is given to some roles.
Based on what had happened at the End of the previous Cycle, the Copper Aged people portrayed Vyasa as having edited and divided the Veda into four (namely Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda and Atharva Veda). The Itihasas and the Puranas are said to be the fifth Veda. Vyasa is also said to have authored all the Upanishads, the 18 Puranas, the Srimad Bhagavata and the Mahabharata. But all these were written by many who played the role of Vyasa in the Copper Age. Vyasa represents God but God uses instruments on earth. Thus, the Copper Aged people, who got the Hindu scriptures written, were seen as Vyasa (the instruments of God).
In the first section of he Mahabharata is it said that Vyasa spoke the Mahabharatha as Ganesha wrote it. Vyasa also plays a role in the Mahabharatha. All these have to be understood based on the Confluence Aged knowledge.
Vyasa / God spoke to give the messages called the sakar murli in the Brahma Kumaris. It is Brahma Baba (the founder of the Brahma Kumaris) and the members of the Brahma Kumaris who play the role of Ganesha. And it is they who got the messages into the written form. This has been portrayed in a creative way in the Mahabharata. However, the Mahabharata was written in the Copper Age and it also reflected what was happening in the Copper Age.
Since God / Vyasa gives the murlis in the Confluence Age, so as to re-create the deities, God / Vyasa is the Adi Guru (First Guru / Original Guru) of Sanatana Dharma (Perpetual Religion). In the Copper Age, the celebration of Guru Purnima was begun in honour of God / Vyasa as the Adi Guru. Hindus celebrate Guru Purnima until this day in honour of the great Sage Vyasa. On Guru Purnima day, all spiritual aspirants and devotees worship Vyasa in honor of his great divine personage.
Guru Purnima falls on the full moon day (Purnima), in the Hindu month of Ashadh (somewhere around July). This day was chosen for the pujas/celebration of Guru Purnima because :
1. of the spiritual significance of the full moon,
2. it is the time which heralds the setting in of the rains.
The full moon signifies the Confluence Aged soul-conscious stage where the soul is reflecting the light of God to the world (like how the moon is reflecting the light of the sun to the world). In the Confluence Age, it is as if Vyasa/God (as the Adi Guru) is teaching us to become like the full moon. So a full moon day was chosen as a reminder of our aim for attaining the Confluence Aged soul-conscious stage (at the End). The full moon day was also chosen because we have to see the full moon (Brahma Baba, who God uses to begin the Confluence Age) so as to begin our Confluence Aged spiritual effort-making. Chosing the full-moon day for Guru Purnima was a sign that the ancient people were waiting to see the full moon (Brahma Baba) so that they can begin their Confluence Aged spiritual effort-making to become like the full moon themselves. Seeing the full moon (Brahma Baba) means seeing the beginning of the Confluence Age. The Confluence Age is the Age through which we transform into deities, and the Copper Aged Reptilians were waiting to re-gain the world which they had just lost.
The ancient people had associated rain, water, rivers, lakes and the ocean to the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge and to attaining purity at the End of the Cycle. The knowledge which God gives us as Adi Guru has been associated to a shower of rain on the souls because at the time when we hear the spiritual knowledge of Adi Guru/God (during the Confluence Age), we are blessed to receive his spiritual vibrations to become spiritually powerful. Thus, the rain represents the shower of knowledge and God's Shower of His Vibrations. So, the day which heralds the setting in of the rains was chosen to represent the 'good time' when one should begin one's spiritual lessons. Though this practice began for the Copper Aged 'Calling-Out Process', it was adopted for bhakti. So, traditionally, spiritual seekers (on the path of bhakti) began their efforts to intensify their spiritual practices from the day of Guru Purnima.
Since Vyasa is the Guru of all gurus, all prayers on Guru Purnima Day (to one's guru) are considered as directly reaching Vyasa. It is God who fulfills the desires of the devotees, even if the devotees think that their guru is fulfilling their desires. So, the ancient people gave importance to God's role (as Vyasa), in this way, on Guru Purnima Day.
A Guru is one who removes darkness from one's life. It is only through the Confluence Age that darkness can be truly and completely removed from one's life and from the face of the earth. The hidden aspects, in the bhakti practices relating to Guru Purnima, were meant to call out to God to come and play the role of Vyasa (the Adi Guru). But devotees are not aware of these hidden aspects. Thus, they just practice the religion of their choice with whatever understanding that is being given to them. So, on Guru Purnima day, disciples perform a puja of their respective spiritual guru.
The Guru Purnima day was also accepted, by the ancient people, as the day to give importance to the guru because of what the Copper Aged Reptilians had done. They had begun to play the role of Vyasa (the human gurus).
Buddhists celebrate Guru Purnima in honour of Buddha. Buddhist give importance to Guru Purnima day because Gautama Buddha is said to have done something important on Guru Purnima day. Siddhartha Gautama (Gautama Buddha) is said to have given his first sermon, about the basic principles of Buddhism, on this day at Sarnath, Uttar Pradesh, India. Gautama giving his first sermon on this day represents the founding of Buddhism on this day. So it is an important day for the Buddhists. But Buddha giving his first sermon to his disciples on this day is a representation of his acceptance of the path, which the Copper Aged Reptilians had paved for him. Gautama Buddha gave importance to this day because those playing the role of Vyasa had also played a significant role so as to pave the way for Gautama Buddha.
Those who had walked out of the divine world knew that religions will be started, by specific religious leaders, so as to help people remain virtuous. Since the world had transformed into the ordinary world, there was a need for religions. So, they knew that importance had to be given to the founders of religions, so as to help Mankind remain virtuous. Thus, they did whatever they could, to make it easy for the founders of religions, so that the founders of religions could easily begin to play their role as per the prophecy. This helping hand was appreciated by the founders of religions, and their appreciation was shown through acceptance of the ways etc which the Reptilians had developed and used.
My past birth, who had walked out of the divine world, was also involved with paving the way for Buddha and other founders of religions. He had played the role of Vyasa, and that of Buddha so as to pave the way for Buddha. This past birth of mine had played the role of Buddha while developing the theories for meditation etc, which Gautama Buddha will later use so as to find enlightenment and begin his religion. Both, Buddha and Vyasa, involved teaching spiritual knowledge.
The ancient people gave a lot of importance to knowledge because one needs knowledge to practice meditation / yoga. Vyasa is even said to have taught Dattatreya because Dattatreya was, at first, the "Lord of Yoga"; whereas Vyasa was associated to 'spiritual knowledge'. One needs spiritual knowledge to be the 'lord of yoga'. In the Confluence Age, one needs the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge so as to initiate and remain in yoga with God. Being in yoga enables us to transform into the deities of the Sanatana Dharam. Being in yoga also enables us to teach the spiritual knowledge. But then, it is only the 'Lord of Yoga' who can teach us and enable us to be a 'lord of yoga' (Capital letters are used to refer to God and small letters are used for the role of human souls). Thus, Dattatreya (God) has been portrayed as the 'Guru of gurus' and as the Adi Guru. Understanding the Confluence Aged spiritual knowledge will enable one to understand as to when, in the myths, Dattatreya refers to God and as to when it refers to the instrument of God. It will also help us to understand as to why Dattatreya has been seen as Adi Guru when Vyasa is the Adi Guru. Both roles (Dattatreya and Vyasa) refer to God. God is the Adi Guru who teaches us the spiritual knowledge so that we can be the lord of yoga. It is only the Lord of Yoga who can teach another to be a 'lord of yoga' and so Dattatreya has also been portrayed as the Adi Guru (God).
