SG: mera pranam sawikar karein!! i want to ask about the mantra of yajurvedachapter 26 verse 2, “Since I am speaking this courteous speech for the benefit of the Brahmans, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas, Sudras, related and the non-related, so may I become the favourite of the gods and of the feegiver(sacrificer, yajamana). May this desire of mine be fulfilled and may a certain(unnamed) man yield to me.” dhanyavaad! please explain the alast two lines to me! a person said that in above verse the writer of vedas is asking the wellness from gods! while if god is writer thenwhom is he asking wellness from?
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. God has not written Vedas, He being Formless and Almighty. Almighty God is not dependent but independent by all means. We are souls and take assistance of eyes to see, ears to listen and hand to write and do work etc., but not God.
The knowledge of four Vedas therefore emanates directly from God and is originated in the heart of four rishis of non-sexual creation. Thereafter, Vedas’ knowledge spreads through Rishi-munis.
The idea of the Yajurveda mantra 26/2 is that Almighty God preaches us to spread the knowledge of four Vedas amongst all human-beings , for their benefit by giving His own example that He (God) originates the Vedas’ knowledge in the heart of four Rishis, in the beginning of non-sexual creation for benefit of entire man-kind i.e., just as God gives Vedic knowledge for all mankind so is our duty to spread it to entire mankind. In the mantra, no writer is asking the wellness from Gods. In addition, the idea of mantra is that God is the Supreme Judge and does not favour anyone and that is why, He is popular amongst mankind. Similarly, we people also should do the same.
