Secrets of Vedic Science & Spirituality

- in the perspective of Sankhya Philosophy

- Dr. Siddhartha A. Bhargava

Abstract

[I] One paragraph for topic introduction

Every System of Knowledge, however vast and profound it may be, is based on some basic - Fundamental Principles, which may be inter-woven together to form a Single (or a Few) Model(s) or Theory(ies).

For example, all of the extensively evidenced Knowledge of Modern Science and its Fundamental Principles - can be assimilated into three broad Models or Theories: -

1. STANDARD MODEL of

COSMOLOGY:

that is

which is

- Science of the very - encapsulated in the

– – ‘Theory of Big Bang’.

– “Large

i.e. Celestial Bodies & Cosmos,

2. STANDARD MODEL of

PARTICLE PHYSICS:

that is

which is

- Science of the very - encapsulated in the

– – ‘Theory of Quantum Mechanics’.

– “Small

i.e. Sub-atomic Particles & Forces,

3. UNIFIED THEORY of

BIOLOGICAL EVOLUTION:

that is

which is

- Science of - the synthesis of

– – Darwinian - Theory of Evolution& Natural Selection Mendelian - Theory of Genetic Inheritance.

– “Life

i.e. Organisms or Biota,

Unfortunately, Modern Science has Not been able to mutually Integrate all these three Models or Theories to form a Grand Unified - Theory of Everything”!

Now, the whole Vedic System of Knowledge & Science too must be based on some basic - Fundamental Principles, which could be inter-woven together to form the: -

STANDARD MODEL of

THEORY of

VEDIC SCIENCE! or -

VEDIC SCIENCE!

This Paper is an exercise to comprehensively present this Model, and to show that there is an intrinsic ‘Harmony’ between all these Three topics LIFE; PARTICLES & FORCES; and CELESTIAL BODIES & COSMOS.

Now, to understand the Vedic Model, we need to first Understand the “Vedic Trinity”.

[II] few paragraphs for topic explanation

Vedic Trinity

A comprehensive study of the Vedic Samhitas; along with the Brahmanas, Upanishads & Aranyakas; and the Smritis; Upa-vedas, Shad Darshanas (Six Schools of Vedic Philosophy); and the Shad Vedangas (Six primary Arts & Sciences), would revel that there is an overarching reference and adherence to different “Trinities”, such as: -

֎ Three Gunas

-

Dimensions

-

Tamas

Rajas

Sattva

֎ Three Lokas

Worlds

These above-mentioned are just few of the well-known Trinities. The comparatively lesser- known, yet extensively found Trinities are: -

֎ Three Devas

……

These are again just a few. The list of Trinities is elaborate and exhaustive.

At first glance, most of these multiple Trinities, appear to be totally independent of each- other; with Not much apparent relation with the other Trinities. However, a thorough and diligent scrutiny of the Vedic Lore would establish the underlying elementary principle that All these Triplets, as a matter of fact – are ‘inherently’, ‘categorically’ and ‘respectively’ –

related to each other in a highly intricate, organised and systematic manner. Thereby, all these Triads together form the basis of a Single Unified VEDIC TRINITY i.e. विर्तृ ् or विर्र्व

which, in the Vedic Lore is potently represented by the Three - Maha-Vyahritis: -

भभूर्वुः स्वः- BHU, BHUVAH & SWAH!

A systematic and comprehensive study of the Vedic scriptures would reveal that the whole Vedic outlook of the Universe is fundamentally based on this VEDIC TRINITY. This Trinity is so overwhelming, overarching, and all-pervasive; that, in the Vedic outlook, it may be considered as the

Master-Plan of the Cosmos’; or ‘Back-Bone of the Universe!

It is the Master-Key to open the hidden Secrets of the Vedas; be it Vedic - Science, Spirituality, Philosophy, Rituals, Personal Lifestyle, Society & Civilization, Healthcare & Well- being, Academics, Arts, Political Science, Management, Economics, etc.

This Paper presents a comprehensive understanding of the Three - Maha-Vyahritis; and its intrinsic association with the various forms of the Vedic Trinity: ranging from the Three Lokas (Worlds) and the Devatas (Deities) to the Three Lines of Gayatri Mantra and the Three Syllables of Omkara.

Furthermore, these Three - Maha-Vyahritis - (1) Bhu, (2) Bhuvah & (3) Swah - have been further expounded in the form of the Seven - Vyahritis:

(1) Bhu, (2) Bhuvah, (3) Swah, (4) Mahah, (5) Janah, (6) Tapah, & (7) Satyam.

The Spiritual & Scientific meaning of these Seven Vyahritis have also been elucidated here.

[III]

one concluding paragraph

Ultimately, the objective is to illustrate How the knowledge of the Vedic Trinity & the Seven Vyahritis can guide us towards the essence & goal of Life; and show us how to live a sustainable and harmonious lifestyle, by which we can evolve from Animalism to Humanism; and further from Humanism to Divinity.

END NOTES:

i While, the Vedas in the form of Compilations or Texts are definitely - Four in number, viz.: Rig, Yajur, Sama & Atharva. However, in the form of the major subjects or Knowledge Systems, they are categorised in Three numbers, i.e. Veda-Trayee or Trayee-Vidya, viz.: Rig, Yajur & Sama.

ii The Fourth ‘Tureeya’ is Not a state of Mind; But, is ‘Beyondor Transcendence of- Mind.

iii The Fourth Ritvik Brahma is Not an Active Priest in a Yajna, like the other three Priests. He is the Passive Priest and mostly a silent Observer and Overseer. He represents all the Four Vedas, and particularly, the Atharva Veda.
