“The Gita is after the Veda.
the author of Veda is unknown, some peple assume the author of the samhita are the rishi mention in the sukta/mantras. but traditionally the rishis are considered mantra dhrashta (seer/observer/discoverer) not rachna (writer/creator/maker).” One may like to see his full post of

  • Friend @sayak83@sayak83 says:
    “The authorship implies the human rishi to whom the revelation came. The word apurusheya means “revealed” i.e. “not created by human thought”. It does not mean that a human being did not exist to whom the verse was revealed to and who first recited it.
    Gita is recited later than the Veda-s but is also a revelation.” One may like to see his full post of

Is the word “Ahimsa” or nonviolence mentioned in Yajurveda?

Yajurveda CHAPTER I

28. O Almighty Lord Tbpu, hast suspended in space near Moon,
this Earth, full of foodstuffs, and producer of all the life-giving substances
for the living creatures. May the learned of refined intellect, full of
happiness, residing upon it, the well-wisher of all. abiding by Thy eternal
laws, conquer all foes waging severe fight with the aid of warriors and arms,
thus attain to power. O learned person, just as from times immemorial the
dutiful have been acquiring wealth, so do thou full of wealth worship God.
Let evil be eradicated.

No mention of Ahimsa in Veda/Yajurveda, war, warriors and arms are mentioned in its and so often.

29. The wicked should be removed, the enemies of truth should be
punished ; those fit to be shackled should be cast aside and those opposed
to knowledge should come to grief. Oh destroyer of foes, Thou art not
wrathful, I prepare thee full of virility for battle.
Those who can’t tolerate the good of others must be chastised,
and openly condemned. Those who cause harm to others should be
humiliated. I duly instruct the army to be strong for weakening the foe,
and waging war.

Is that mentioned in the Veda what I have colored in magenta?
I once read there are many theories in connection with people who came to India some say they came from Australia others say they came from China, still others say they came from Africa.

The First Human Race Came From Australia, NOT Africa!
Over the last decade, all manner of unexpected archaeological discoveries have led to many experts questioning much of what was assumed to be fact.Recent findings and field-work relating to little ‘hobbits’ in Flores Island, Siberian hominids with mtDNA connections to people of Papua New Guinea, the exclusivity of our distinct genetic Homo sapiens code being compromised by a 4% Neanderthal input, and a variety of unexpected findings have called into question many elemental assumptions held about the past.

The Origin and History of the Aryans of Ancient India – Hinduwebsite.com

The article explores the facs and myths concerning the Aryans and their … to one school of thought the Aryans came in hordes and first settled in northwestern India, … central Asia, Russia, China and probably Arctic region by land and by sea.
http://www.hinduwebsite.com/hinduism/concepts/aryan.asp
Etc.
Are there any clues in Veda itself? That will be of my interest . It is also doubtful that “Arya” is/was a proper name of a race/tribe mentioned in Veda. Is it? Please

While reading Yajurveda, I read the following at Chapter 18 Verses 41-43 :

41. Air is quick, pervades the whole universe, retains sound in the
atmosphere. Its parts are well known as givers of vigour and movers in
the atmospheric vapours. May it protect this our Priesthood and Nobility.
All Hail to the air for success in our undertakings. To those All Hail.

42. Sacrifice (yajna) is the bestower of delights, a nice nourisher,
and the repository of vedic speech. Heartfelt famous praises are its
guerdons. May it protect this our Priesthood and Nobility. All-Hail
to the Sacrifice for success in our undertakings. To those All-Hail

43. He, who is the Lord of Creatures, Omnific, has a mind that
possesses vedic speech. The famous verses of the Rigveda and Sama veda
touch the innermost recesses of his heart, wherewith he honours the
learnad, loves truth and imparts knowledge. May he protect for us this
veda and the Dhanur Veda. May he acquire truthful speech and
realise religion. For thesa objects one should serve others in a righteous
way.

When I checked it as to what is Dhanur Veda, I get the following:
“DHANURVEDA
(A Veda relating to the Art / Science of Archery)

© B. Chakravarti, ATARN, 2001
DHANURVEDA from the BRHAT SARNGADHARA PADDHATI,
a 15th Century treatease in Sanskrit on ‘The Science of the Horn Bow’ by Sarngadhara. Translated from the Sanskrit edition by Peter Peterson, Bombay, 1888.”

Believe me, I had never even heard of it.

I don’t know Sanskrit so, I cannot Check the translations to discern as to which one is more correct.
My point is that whatever the translation one takes, it is evident that it is not related , even remotely, to what is considered as the spirit of Ahimsa in general terms. Or is it?
Please do correct me if I am wrong. We are all human beings, could make mistakes. Right? Please

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahimsā, Pāli:[1] avihiṃsā) is a term meaning ‘not to injure’ and ‘compassion’.[2][3] The word is derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike; hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm.[4][5] Ahimsa is also referred to asnonviolence, and it applies to all living beings—including all animals—according to many Indian religions.[6]

There are many theories about the background of Veda people.

Some hold that Veda people were Aryans who entered the Indian-sub-Continent on chariots and on horse-backs invading the Indian-sub-Continent. One could see in Veda description of the horses, the chariots, the weaponry the Veda people had.

  1. Others hold that it was not an invasion, it was a migration, and the native locals dispersed to barren lands and remote places vacating the green pastures for the invaders/immigrants, happily, while the natives were also agriculturists or animal tenders.
    • Those who subscribe to this view admit that there was war, they name it “Battle of 10 Kings” while this name is not perhaps mentioned in Veda.
    • Veda is full of words of war,battles, foes, enemies etc. And such words are almost in every chapter of the Yajurveda. So, the Veda people were warriors.
    • Did they fight all these battles before invasion/migration to the Indian-sub-Continent? They provide no details.

There are other theories also, each has impossibilities of its own.

Neither Veda solves them nor the holders of such theories. Please

Our friend @Aupmanyav@Aupmanyav has read it. So through a good friend it could be discussed. He could mention the valid points in the book, one by one here.
The book of BG Tilak’s is not that important. So, I will concentrate on Veda. Please
My points are ?

  1. Was Veda revealed in the Arctic?
  2. Was Veda revealed in the countries of Europe or in the Central Asia?
  3. Was Veda revealed in the Indian-sub-Continent?
  4. Was Veda revealed elsewhere?
  5. Was Veda partially revealed in any one of the above and partially in others?

These are the questions which need to be focused and answered. Right? Please
