"The Veda emanated from God Himself as inhalation and exhalation..."
vEda literally means Knowledge. The audio files in the following
links present you the Knowledge as discovered by the vEdic R^iShis
(Seers). shruti (right intonation) is extremely important for the
recitation of the vEda . Please do not attempt to learn the mantras from
the audio without the guidance of a qualified guru, since a mantra by
definition should only be recited according to the right shruti .
However, feel free to learn the stotras as they are not bound by shruti
. The vEda mantras have been passed down orally for more than 6000 years
without any change, either in their intonation or the content. The vEdas
are the basis for the world's oldest and continuous civilization arising
out of bhAratavarSha (India).
vEda dhvani (Sound of the vEda ) gives peace of mind when listened
with reverence and renders the mind fit for contemplation. Please listen
to these very sacred mantras with a clean body and a pure mind to
enhance your spiritual progress.
