VedaVyasa - Krishna Dwaipayana - Badarayana



Reverred as Bhagawan – Beacon – Leading light – Greatest Guru- Maharshi – Lord Vedavyasa, known by several popular names like Krishna-dvaipayana, Badarayana, is perhaps the only one of his caliber, the world in general and our country in particular, profoundly remembering and praising Him for his Wisdom, Foresight and Compassion in guiding and evolving the mankind towards attaining their potential solace.

He is reputed not only as the author of the Mahabharata, the Brahma Sutras and the Puranas, but also as the most exemplary sage of the greatest perfection one could imagine. Being incaranation of Vishnu, his powers and knowledge were unsurpassed. He could see the past, the present and the future at one stroke. He was a person endowed with cosmic-consciousness. Nothing was unknown to him, at any time, in all the realms of existence. We can imagine the extent of the realisation or Perfection which Bhagawan Vyasa attained. Unparalled is His power.

‘Vyasa’ does not signify the name of any one person. It is a title. Every DwaparaYuga witnesses the birth of a Vyasa. He bears the title till the next Dwapara Yuga comes.

In the first Dvâpara, Brahmâ Himself divided the Vedas;
In the second Dvâpara, the first Prajapati Vyâsa did the same;
So S’akra, (Indra) in the third,
Brihaspati, in the fourth,
Surya in the fifth;
Yama, in the sixth,
Indra, in the seventh,
Vasistha, in the eighth;
Sarasvata Risi in the ninth,
Tridhama, in the tenth;
Trivrisa, in the eleventh,
Bharadvâja, in the twelfth;
Antariksa, in the thirteenth;
Dharma, in the fourteenth;
Evaruni in the fifteenth;
Dhananjaya, in the sixteenth;
Medhatithi in the seventeenth;
Vrati, in the eighteenth;
Atri, in the nineteenth;
Gautama in the twentieth,
Uttama, whose soul was fixed on Hari, in the twenty-first,
Vâjasravâ Vena, in the twenty second;
His family descendant Soma, In the twenty-third;
Trinavindu, in the twenty-fourth;
Bhârgava, in the twenty-fifth;
Sakti, in the twenty-sixth,
Jâtûkarnya in the twenty-seventh
and Krisna Dvaipâyana became the twenty-eighth Veda Vyâsa in the Dvâpara Yugas.

This Vyasa was actually Krishna Dwaipayana – ‘Krishna’ because he was dark – coloured, ‘Dwaipayana’ because he was born on an island in the Yamuna. He was called ‘Veda Vyasa’ for it was he who classified the Vedas into four branches. His hermitage was in Badari and he was therefore ‘Badarayana’.

The life history of Ved Vyas is an interesting one. The author of the great epic Mahabharata, Ved Vyas was the first and greatest acharya of Sanatan Dharma. He is responsible for classifying the four Vedas, wrote the 18 Puranas and recited the great Mahabharata. In fact, the Mahabharata is often called as the fifth Veda. The most important and the most glorified section is the Bhagwad Gita.

The ‘Mahabharata’ remains a marvel in the literature of the world. Veda Vyasa was the sage who gave the world this Storehouse of realism, wisdom and compassion. And he was the guide to whom seven generations of the high and the humble looked up in hours of sorrow and darkness.

Around some 5000 years ago, he was born on an island on the holy river Yamuna. His father was Parashar Rishi, a sage and his mother was Satyavati. He described that the most important goal in one’s life is to attain Narayana or the Divine Supreme.

Apart from the Mahabharata, he also wrote the Brahmasootra, one of his shortest theologies on Hindu philosophy. The life of Ved Vyas is an example to all in the modern times on how to be selfless and devote oneself entirely to Lord in order to attain Nirvana.

Vyaasam Vasishtha naptaaram
Sakteh Poutra Makalmasham
Paraasaraatmajam vande
Suka Taatam Taponidhim

Meaning: I bow to Vyaasa, the great grandson of Vasishtha, the grandson of that pure sage Sakti, son of Parashara and to the father of the great taponidhi Suka!
It is interesting to see that Vyaasa is glorified for being the father of Sage Suka, who is described as the treasure of tapas, penance.

Vyaasaaya Vishnu Roopaaya Vyaasa Roopaaya Vishnave
Namovai Brahma Nidhaye Vaasishthaya Namo Namah||

Meaning: I bow to Vyaasa, who is the treasure house of Brahma Jnana, who is of the clan of Vasishtha (all descendents of Vasishtha are Vaasishthas), who is verily one with Vishnu. It is interesting to note that both Vyaasa and Vishnu are portrayed as dark colored. Because of his dark complexion and because he was born in a riverine island, he is also known as Krishna Dwaipaayana. He is also called Paaraasharya, because he is a descendent of Paraashara. Krishna means dark colored and apart from the son of Devaki, who is most famous with that name and who is the 8th Avatar of Vishnu (it is interesting to note that He was also the 8th son of Devaki).

Vyaasa is considered as one of the many Upa Avataaras of Vishnu. Veda Vyaasa is a post and there will be a different Vyaasa for every Maha Yuga. Son of Paraasara is the Vyaasa for this Maha Yuga. Aswatthama will be the Veda Vyaasa for the next Maha Yuga.

His writing of Mahabharatha: When sage Veda Vyaasa was asked by Lord Brahma to write Maha Bharatha, he was looking for a suitable scribe and Brahmaji persuaded Lord Ganesha Himself to take up the task and complete it. Lord Ganesha accepted it on one condition that once Vyasa starts the recitation, he should not stop it (His ghantam – scriber should not stop). Vyasa agreed and put a counter-condition that Ganesha should understand the text being recited before writing it down,

INDIAN PHILOSOPHY: Shruti, Smriti, Purana and epics.

The ancient Indian literature is the glorious gift of the Indian civilization to the world. It comprises of the illustrious scriptures. The Indian scriptures can be broadly classified into two categories:

(1) The Shruti literature

Shruti is concerned with ‘the heard’ or ‘the revealed’.

The Vedas and the Upanishads are considered as the Shruti literature. The Sanskrit root ‘shrut’ means ‘to hear’. In ancient times, while doing their tapasya and sadhana, the great sages ‘heard’ the divine truths. Whatever was ‘heard’ was presented in the Vedas and the Upanishads. Thus they came to be known as the Shruti literature.

(2) The Smriti literature.

Smriti is concerned with ‘the remembered.’

Smriti literature is concerned with ‘that what is remembered’. The literature which was based on the knowledge acquired through the experience or the tradition was the Smriti literature.

The guidelines for ethics, moral obligations, social codes, customs etc. are found in the Smriti literature.

The authentic Smriti literature has had its basis in the Shruti. Whenever a difference arises between the Shruti and the Smriti, the Shruti statement is accepted as the final word. Needless to say, the Smriti is to be interpreted in consonance with the Shruti. From time to time the Smriti might undergo modifications, but the Shruti can not be altered at all.

The great epics Mahabharata and Ramayana also belong to the Smriti literature.

While the Shruti literature is veritable and inviolable, the Smriti literature may get modified under the influence of time and place.

3. The Salient features of Vedas are:

Divine in origin.

Apaurusheya i.e.they are not produced by a couple of individuals, nor composed by some poets or authors.

They are divine and eternal. The Vedas are truly considered to be the boundless repository of “knowledge par excellence”.

They constitute sublime knowledge revealed by supreme Divinity to our great ancestors while they were doing their penance.

The ancient sages, while doing their tapasya and sadhana, ‘heard’ the divine truths. Whatever was ‘heard’ or ‘revealed’ to the great sages was presented in the Vedas and the Upanishads.

The ancient Rishis led a very pious life which was further sanctified by the austerity of penance. They could ‘hear’ the silence of the Divinity and could ‘see’ the Infinite. The Vedic Rishi is referred to as a drashta or a seer. The Vedic Rishis could ‘see’ even the transcendental truth as they were great ‘seers’. The ‘divine truths’ were revealed to them while they were in meditation on higher spiritual planes. The Vedas contain the ‘divine knowledge’ revealed to the great Rishis in their “Supra-normal Consciousness”.

They are timeless in the sense that they are beyond the confines of time. They are the eternal truths beyond the influence of time. Time or place can not affect the significance of the knowledge ‘contained’ in the Vedas.

The Vedas present the sublime form of knowledge. This knowledge is impersonal. It is divine. It is absolute, veritable and inviolable. It is eternal; it is timeless. It remains unaffected at all times, at all places, under all circumstances. Hence the Vedas are adjudged the Swatah Pramana or self-evident. That means their truths do not need any proof, support or elaboration.

The Shruti is treated as the supreme and ultimate authority.

The Vedas are known as the Shruti literature.

4. What do the Vedas contain?

The Vedas contain the mantras. These mantras have different specific purposes.

Most of them are symbolic. Some of them are hymns addressed to the deities. Some of them are for ceremonial purposes or for the rites and rituals. Some deal with the social life. There are references to the sciences and mathematics also. Discussions on the topics of chemistry, astronomy, botany, zoology, physiology, medical therapeutics and bio-sciences are also found in the Vedas.

The Vedas reflect all the aspects of existence. They throw light on the Srishti (the creation), the Brahman, the atman, the life and all the related issues of spiritualism.

The Vedas present a record of the philosophical progress of man.

A great deal of scholastic ability is required to interpret the Vedas. A single word may have different meanings in different contexts. Many mantras are cryptic statements to a lay man. Some of them are too enigmatic to be followed. They are ambiguous or symbolic.

This is why the Vedas have often been misinterpreted even by learned scholars of reputation. Unfortunately, some of the Western philosophers have not done justice to the Vedas. Many of them failed to understand them correctly and presented distorted views on several counts. Some of the Indian scholars have been influenced by their Western counterparts.

5. Four Vedas

Shri Veda Vyasa (also known as Badarayana or Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa) was one of the greatest of all the sages of India.

His contribution in compilation of the Vedas is an example of unparalleled erudition.

Veda Vyasa categorized all the mantras and compiled them in four parts. The four parts thus compiled came to be known as the four Vedas.

The four Vedas are the Rig Veda, the Yajur Veda, the Sama Veda and the Atharva Veda.

The mantra which is in the metered form and recited for the praise of the deity is called rik or richa. The Rig Veda is the oldest of all the Vedas. The Rig Veda is composed of 10552 mantras. It is believed to be the work of 403 sages. The person who knows all the mantras is known as Ritwik.

The mantra that can be chanted melodiously is called sama. The Sama Veda has 1875 mantras. The knower of this Veda is known as Udgata.

The mantra in the prose form is called yajus. The Yajur Veda is the smallest of all the four Vedas. The knower of this Veda is known as Adhvaryu.

The mantra meant for daily rites and rituals in prose or poetic form is known as atharva. The Atharva Veda has a special place in the field of philosophy and spiritualism. The knower of this Veda is known as Brahma.

6. Composition of Vedas :

In simple terms, the Vedas are the compilation of the mantras or the hymns. The word ‘mantra’ originates from the Sanskrit word ‘manan’ which suggests ‘thinking’, ‘pondering’ or ‘contemplating’. Most of the mantras are in the form of the metered verse.

Originally, the Vedas were not in a written form. In the early years, they were chanted orally. For centuries together, they were transmitted orally to the successive generations. They have been preserved by accurate verbal transmission in the Guru-Shishya tradition and are passed from a generation to the next one. The Vedas acquired the written form hundreds of centuries later.

7. The Parts of the Vedas

In order to study the Vedas in detail, six Vedangas are helpful.

These shastras are known as the Vedangas. The six Vedangas are:

1. Shiksha (śikṣā): phonetics, phonology and morphophonology (sandhi)
2. Kalpa (kalpa): ritual
3. Vyakarana (vyākaraṇa): grammar
4. Nirukta (nirukta): etymology
5. Chandas (chandas): meter
6. Jyotisha (jyotiṣa): astronomy

The Vedas are voluminous literary work. In the formative phases, they have never had been in written form. The scholars differ on the issue of “parts” or the “sections” of the Vedas.

8. Elements of Vedas :

The Samhitas and the Brahmanas form the Karma-Kanda segment of the Vedas. They are apparently concerned with the ceremonial rites and rituals. The Aranyakas and the Upanishads form the Gyan-Kanda segment of the Vedas. They explicitly focus on the philosophy and spiritualism.

The Samhitas

The Samhitas form the first part of each of the Vedas. A Samhita is a collection of mantras, so the Samhitas are sometimes also referred to as the ‘mantras. Most of the mantras or hymns were concerned with the nature and the deities. Generally, the mantras are addressed to the Gods and Goddesses. In fact, they seem to be symbolic and need exceptional scholastic efforts to decipher them.

The Samhitas are named after the Vedas they belong to. For example:

The Samhita of the Rig Veda is called the Rig-Veda-Samhita or the Rig-Samhita.The Rig-Samhita contains the mantras or the hymns known as ‘richas’. These hymns are metered verses.

The Yajur-Samhita contains verities of mantras composed in the poetical and the prose forms.

The Sam-Samhita contains mantras in the form of songs meant for liturgy or public worship.

The Atharva-Samhita contains mantras meant for routine rites and rituals.

The Brahmanas

The Brahmanas constitute the second part of the Vedas.

An elaborate explanation of the mantras became necessary. The result was the Brahmanas. The Brahmanas are explanatory in nature. They are mostly in prose. The word ‘Brahmana’ has its root in the word ‘brahman’ which means ‘prayer’ or ‘devotion’. The word ‘brahman’ is distinct from the word ‘Brahman’ which means ‘the immanent Power’. The Brahmanas hint at ‘the magic’ or ‘the secret power’ of the sacrificial rituals.

The Brahmanas are concerned with the religious rites and rituals. But their covert meanings often baffle the researchers.

The Rig Veda has two Brahmanas – Aitereya Brahmana and Shankhayana Brahmana.

The Shat-Patha Brahmana of Yajur Veda is the largest of all the Brahmanas of all the Vedas.

The Aranyakas

The Aranyakas form the third part of the Vedas. The Sanskrit word ‘aranya’ means a forest. The Aranyakas were developed by the hermits, living in the forests. Due to the limited resources in the forests, they could not perform the conventional sacrifices, nor could they adhere to the rituals. It was then that the Aranyakas were developed.

With the advent of the Aranyakas, the emphasis on the sacrificial rites seems to be diluting. The shift towards philosophic and spiritual interpretation of the rituals and ceremonials is evident.

The Aranyakas reflect an explicit transition in the philosophy of life of man. The speculative and intuitive thinking seems to be developing. Meditative thinking is conspicuous. The Vedic man seems to be turning from the gross to the subtle. His quest for knowledge seems to be intensified.

The Upanishads

The Upanishads are the concluding portions of the Vedas. The Upanishads are at the end of the Vedas.They are also referred to as the Vedanta. The word Vedanta is a compound word made up of two Sanskrit words: ‘Veda’ and ‘Anta’. The word ‘anta’ means an end. The Vedanta essentially refers to the philosophy pronounced in the Upanishads, the final parts of the Vedas. The Vedanta broadly covers the philosophy enunciated by the holy Scriptural Trinity – the Upanishads, the Brahma-Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita.

The word ‘Upanishad’ is derived from the Sanskrit root Sad. The Sanskrit verb sad refers to the knowledge or the satya. The words ‘upa’ + ‘ni’ suggests ‘sitting (before someone) with a determination’. The word ‘Upanishad’ can be understood as: To sit near (close to) a guru with an objective to acquire knowledge.

Most of the Upanishads are in forms of dialogues between a master and a disciple. In Upanishads, a seeker raises a topic and the enlightened guru satisfies the query aptly and convincingly. Thus, the Upanishads contain the sublime knowledge that deals with the topic at great depth. The Upanishads enrich the human mind immensely as they discuss the Brahman, the atman, the existence, life and death, moksha(mukti), the jagat, the knowledge (the para-vidya and the apara-vidya), the Brahma-gyana (or the atma-gyana) and many other related issues elaborately.

Some of the Upanishads are in the prose form and some others in the verse form. Some of them are partly composed in prose and partly in verse. One hundred and eight Upanishads are believed to belong to the ancient times. Of the 108 Upanishads, ten Upanishads are considered exquisite by distinguished scholars.

The ten outstanding Upanishads are:

Isha, Kena, Katha, Prashna, Mundaka, Mandukya, Chhandogya, Brahadaranyaka, Aitereya and Taitteriya.

Some scholars also attach due importance to Shvetashvatara and Maitri, Kautishaki too.

It is believed that:

The Rig Veda has 10 Upanishads.

Aiteriya Upanishad is associated with Rig Veda.

The number of Upanishads for Shukla Yajur Veda is 19,

Isha Upanishad is a part of Shukla Yajur Veda.

For Krishna Yajur Veda it is 32.
Katha Upanishad is associated with Krishna Yajur Veda.

Sama Veda has 16 Upanishads.

Kena Upanishad is associated with Sama Veda.

Atharva Veda has 31 Upanishads.

Prashna Upanishad is associated with Atharva Veda.

The most exalted Rishis and the enlightened celebrities have contributed to the Upanishads. Some of them are Maharshi Yagnavalkya, Rajarshi Janak, Mandukya Muni, Pippalad Muni etc. Maharshi Yagnavalkya contributed significantly to the Brahadaranyaka Upanishad

The Vedanta

The Vedanta essentially refers to the philosophy pronounced in the Upanishads, the final parts of the Vedas. In a broad sense, the Vedanta covers the fundamental philosophy enunciated by the Prasthantrayi – the Upanishads, the Brahma-Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita.

The Vedanta offers the sublime knowledge in its most exalted form. The knowledge may be relative or absolute. Relative knowledge pertains to the senses and the intellect. It is concerned with the physical world and worldly objects. But the Vedanta transcends beyond the realms of relative knowledge. It leads a seeker to transcendental knowledge and finally to absolute knowledge.

9. Brahma Sutras

The Brahma-Sutra is also referred to as Vedanta-Sutra or Uttar-Mimamsa-Sutra. The Brahma-Sutra has 555 sutras. Most of them are aphoristic. Being cryptic, they are almost unintelligible at first sight and need elaborate explanation by an expert. Hence, a number of commentaries were written to interpret them.

Madhavacharya wrote commentaries on the Brahma-Sutra and advocated Dvaita Vedanta.

The Brahman is the Supreme Being and governs the destiny of the Jagat and the Jivas. The Vedanta philosophy is focused on the Jagat(the universe), the Jiva(individual soul) and the Brahman (the Supreme Being). Brahman is the repository of all knowledge and power.

Jivas, out of ignorance, gets trapped in the Jagat. Attached to the physical world and driven by passions and desires, they are tempted to act with selfish, mundane motives. They remain chained to ceaseless actions (karma). As a result, they subject themselves to countless births in various forms. Their transmigration from this birth (life) to the next depends on the karma (the quality of action).

Moksha or mukti (liberation) is the goal of life.

10. Schools of thought

Dvaita means dualism. This system believes that the Brahman and the Jiva are two different entities. This system believes that the God, the soul and the Universe are three separate realities. God governs the world. The soul in its ignorance remains attached to the physical world. By developing faith and devotion in God, he can seek God’s mercy and then the soul may migrate to the Heaven above. Such a jiva may attain Mukti. Thus he may liberate himself from the cycle of life and death and live with God forever in the Heaven.

Vishishtadvaita literally means “qualified non-dualism”. Ramanujacharya stresses that God alone exists. He says that Brahman is God. He is not formless. The Cosmos and the Jivas form his body. When the Jiva (soul) realizes that he is a part of Paramatman (God), the soul is liberated. With self-realization and liberation the soul enjoys infinite consciousness and eternal bliss of God.

Advaita literally means non-dualism. This system contends that the Brahman and the atman (individual soul) are not different entities. Brahman is the Ultimate, Supreme Reality. Brahman is beyond names and forms. Brahman can not be described in words. Brahman is Sat-Chit-Ananda. Brahman and atman are not different realities. They are identical. They are the eternal, all-pervading realities underlying all existence.
