‘Veda’ literally means ‘knowledge’ in Sanskrit. It is because the term was derived when the ancients thought of putting their experiences in an organised manner. It can’t be said in the written form because it is certain that in that hoary past period writing had not been invented. Nevertheless, the four of them, viz. Rigveda, Saamveda, Yajurveda and Atharvaveda, are known to contain the pristine gems of Indian wisdom. They appear universally important because they constitute one of the first records of the human ‘awakened’ experiences. They can be said to be the very fount of Indian wisdom. It is their status, apart from the contents, that made them universally popular. The German indologist, Max Mueller, almost devoted his entire lifetime in explaining to the west the gems that they contain. While their extreme significance cannot be denied, a few words need to be written for explaining the reason behind undertaking this project of revealing before the curious readers their Sookta or Aphorism-wise translation.
