Slavic and Indian Vedas: sacred knowledge
The Vedas are the most ancient collections of living knowledge. The main language of their writing is Sanskrit. Such Vedas are called Indian. There are also Slavic ones that were written by Aryan runes on noble metal plates, as well as on parchment and wooden blanks. More information about the Indian and Slavic Vedas, their characteristics and types - in this article.
Translated from Sanskrit (the sacred ancient Indian language), the concept of "Vedas" means "teaching", "knowledge", "wisdom". Comes from the root "know", "see."
These are collections of the most ancient sacred knowledge of Hinduism. Initially, they were transmitted only verbally. Then the information began to be recorded on the plant material, thus making the knowledge written.
There are Indian and Slavic Vedas, each of which is further subdivided into other varieties.
The Vedas are the Vedic heritage and the scriptures that have come down to our time.Some of this knowledge is not yet available to man, because they are not fully disclosed or people are not ready to accept them (consciousness requires more preparation).
But the sacred books - the Vedas - have attracted people since ancient times - both ordinary people and those who study ancient knowledge (scholars). Previously, they saw only poetry with a touch of patriarchy. But later the Vedas were revealed to researchers and as a source of Indo-European myths telling about gods. As well as ancient knowledge, reflecting wisely organized life, culture, deep spiritual and metaphysical science.
And the most interesting is that there are Slavic (Russian) and Indian Vedas. A number of researchers believe that this is essentially the same concept. The only difference is that the Indian Vedas were created on the basis of the Slavic (the latter also have the name Slavic-Aryan). According to the Inglings (representatives of one of the branches of Neopaganism), the Slavic Vedas are translations from ancient languages. However, many scholars consider this work a new development, questioning the accuracy of the information presented in it.
In Hinduism, there is such a belief that when a new cosmic cycle begins, that is, after the creation of the Universe, God (Brahma) receives Vedic knowledge. It acts until the end of the cycle, then goes into the unmanifested state, to be reborn in the next cycle.
The sages receive this great knowledge, which then pass it from mouth to mouth. And it has been happening for many millions of years. The knowledge from the Indian Vedas, which are known to mankind today, more than 5 thousand years ago were recorded and shared by the sage Vedavyasa. Each part he gave to one of his four students - in the form of mantras and hymns.
This took place over a period of time: from the 16th century BC to the 5th century AD. But due to the fact that palm leaves and tree bark served as material for recordings, many records were not preserved. And those manuscripts that have survived to this day are about several hundred years old.
The ancient Indian Vedas mostly remained orally - in the form of mantras (collections of mantras are also called samhits). These are such repetitive prayer texts that are pronounced when performing various religious rituals. Also adjacent to them are brahmans, Upanishads, aranyaks - comments on collections.
There are such books of the Indian Vedas: Rig Veda (hymns), Samaveda (chants), Yajurveda (sacrificial formulas), Atharvaveda (spells).
The Hindu religion believes that the Vedas were not created by earthly people, but they are eternal divine writings that are given through the wise men to humanity - for self-improvement, the revelation of super powers in themselves, the knowledge of the essence of life.
As for Indian philosophy and the Vedas, in India, different religious systems and schools at all times and today have their own relevance to this ancient knowledge. There were and there are those who accept the Vedas (astiki), as well as those who reject (nastiq).
In addition to the above, there are also the so-called Other Vedas. Rather, these are postvedic texts, which are also called the “Fifth Veda”.

How to read the Vedas
In Russian Indian sacred books can be read. But they are difficult to understand, since they are written in the form of archaic hymns that were sung monotonously by the priests in order to achieve the necessary and secret mystical goals.
The content of the Vedas can be found in the Literary Monuments.Thus, it is possible to familiarize with Rigveda, Atharvaveda, Yajurveda.
But the essence of Vedic knowledge is comprehended only through the spiritual Master, who lives them, applying in practice. Indeed, for an ordinary person (who does not yet know the Vedas), not just a theory is necessary, but practical skills, a real example from the life of a real person.
And one who is truly open to accepting and understanding the secret information of Vedic knowledge can come to know it by coming to the Teacher.
As a rule, these are people who have been living in India for some time and are deeply immersed in the Vedic teaching, completely rethinking every aspect of it. Because the lived Vedic knowledge becomes more valuable than the Vedas themselves.
To familiarize yourself with this teaching, you can first read the Mahabharata, where there is everything that is stated in the Indian Vedas.
This is the ancient Indian epic, combining several literary works that are organically interrelated: legends, fables, short stories, parables, hymns, laments, myths, and so on.
Mahabharata (Indian Vedas, belonging to the “other” group) is translated from Sanskrit as “the legend of the descendants of Bharata”. In turn, Bharata is the king, who is a descendant of the ancient king, Kuru.
All works are combined according to the framing principle and contain 18 books and more than 75 thousand couplets. It is the source of a large number of literary plots and images, which are reflected in the heritage of southern and southeastern peoples.
The sage Vedavyasa is considered the author of the Mahabharata and it is he who is the main actor of the work. Even made films and series on this ancient epic. One of these films tells about two clans from the Kuru dynasty. They are magnified by the Pandavas (personifying kindness and the divine essence in themselves) and the Kauravas (carrying negative manifestations - envy, meanness, anger). The film tells that for a long time they have been competing with each other for the reason of power, wealth, and the management of the capital, Hastinapur.
They represent the oldest source of deep knowledge about the laws of life. Slavic Vedas - is the sacred basis of the Slavic worldview. Because it is they who more precisely explain the most important and vital laws of the divine world for people.
The material on which the ancient knowledge is written is divided into three groups:
- Plates of gold or other expensive metal, on the surface of which were inscribed with the help of stamping and paint.The blanks were connected by so-called round brackets in the form of rings.
- Kharaty - parchment scrolls with text.
- Volkhvari - planks of wood, on the surface of which was inscribed through a letter or by cutting.
The information was written in ancient runic language, which is not hieroglyphics or letters, but secret images that convey a sufficiently large amount of ancient knowledge.
Total Slavic Vedas contain 5 books.
- The first is the Sanity of the Veda of Perun and the Ingling Saga;
- The second is the “Book of Light” and “The Word of wisdom from the sorcerer Velimudra” (part one).
- The third is “Ingliism” and “The Word of Wisdom from the Magi Velimudra” (part two).
- The fourth is the “Source of Life” and the “White Way”.
- Fifth - "Slavic worldview."
Thus, the Vedas are received as revelations from above by various sages - in due time. This sacred knowledge exists from the very beginning of the creation of the world.
It is the Vedas that contain the deep knowledge that a person needs to know in order to become happy, to reveal his abilities and purpose, to be realized in all major areas of life; how to treat other people, the environment.
The Vedas also tell about who God is. And what kind of relationship live between God and man.All these aspects are covered in ancient knowledge, which is known to modern humanity as the Vedas.
