The Vedas and Sanskrit

The Vedas and Sanskrit

by Mrs. Diane M. Rousseau, LHD, Ph.D.

The Sanskrit word Veda comes from the root word “Vid” which means “to know”, the vowel “a” denotes the manifestation as Divine origin. Veda means to enter into fields of knowledge that are not limited by space or time; the unbounded Knowledge of Eternal Truths that have been passed down since ancient times and more recently in the last eight thousand years have been held in sacred texts as the Vedas were held in memory and passed first orally. The Vedas are composed of four fields of Knowledge, which are Rig, Sama, Artha and Yajur Veda, here we will be directing out attention to the Rig Veda which is the key to the Divine knowledge of sound and light as a spiritual vibration and energy. The Source of Knowledge is held in the sound ‘aaah’, which comes from the Sanskrit Sacred Word “AUM”.

Each Veda gives Knowledge of both absolute and relative values of life, the knowledge of the Divine in sound, light, energy; the five elements of earth, air, fire, water and space; of these elements, Space or Akasha, which is the unbounded intelligence and memory, is the most important in relating to Sanskrit. All of this knowledge pertains to Natural and Divine Universal Laws, moral codes, sacred geometry, space, astronomy, mathematics and the knowledge of physics and hyper dimensional realities. This Knowledge was brought to the Himalayas as the main repository by the Euro Aryans who also passed some of these sacred teachings to Egypt; this Knowledge has been held since ancient times as the Mysteries by Advanced Teachers, Adepts and various indigenous peoples who have migrated around the planet and are now taught by their Elders. The lesser and greater Mysteries are contained in the Vedas and this Knowledge was not passed unless a candidate proved worthy in character, with a sincere desire for inner Truths as well as the needed personal experiences that comes with inner development. Of all the initiations that the Candidate must have, the most important was the Initiation into the Word, which is Initiation into an inner transformative process using a sacred Mantra, which is the Sacred Encoded Divine Energy of Light and Sound, transcending the entire field of relativity with the Divine. Pure Knowledge must be experienced to become Wisdom, and here is where we understand the word Yoga which means Union, it is the union of the heart, higher mind and Spirit along with the transformation of the lower mind.

The following uses the Sanskrit Word “AUM” which is the Silent Sound of the Universe and Intelligence behind all subtle fields of creation.

A” represents the Omni Present Spirit, Unbounded Absolute.

U” represents the Omni Potent Omni Consciousness, Waves of Divine Energy as Pure Thought as well as Divine Sustained Energy.

M” represents the Omni Creative Energy as well as energy and intelligence in all fields of matter and their various densities depending on the levels of intelligence of Spirit that is infused in matter for evolution.

Defined further, we can see the Divine Triple Nature of the Supreme as Brahma, “A” the Creator; Vishnu, “U” the Sustainer and Shiva, “M” the Liberator as Pure Consciousness Spirit within matter as the Conscious destroyer of ignorance, which takes one from darkness to Light.

The above description gives insight into why there are thousands of mantras, and why the ancients used specific Divine Sound formulas in Sanskrit for Initiation. Each Sanskrit formula unfolds specific Divine qualities. ‘AUM’ said as the sound “OM” will alter a persons life in relativity, as it is known in ancient text as a “recluse mantra” which can only be used when one has let go of all aspects of relative life and has given up all forms of material enjoyments of life.

Veda means “total absolute knowledge”, aside from being passed in Sanskrit, it is also used in symbols, stanzas, and mandalas, which are Sacred diagrams of Divine energy and intelligence; they are the spiritual sciences of antiquity of the Aryans (Vedas) Assyrians, Egyptians and Chaldeans. The alphabet and vowel system of Sanskrit is not a ‘spoken’ language, but an encoded system of Sacred Sounds used by the ancients to keep Sacred Knowledge pure. This system of vowels is also found in the source of every language in the world, because Sanskrit was the first seeded language on planet earth.

In the book, “At the Sign of the Square and Compass” by Geoffrey Hodson in 1976, Mr. Hodson states the following, “…Man spirit and God spirit are One Spirit; the Atma (God) and the Paramatma (Supreme Being or Spirit) are ONE”. Further Mr. Hodson gives insight by the following revelation, “…In terms of transcendental Consciousness, this Realization is the goal of human achievement. The Search for the Lost Word which Freemasons seek to find or recover is an experience in consciousness, an awakening of one’s mind into direct knowing of oneness with the Great Architect of the Universe”.

The Vedas hold the Keys to the Lost Word in this ancient Sanskrit language, as the Word transcends all fields of relativity while transforming ones life to the Divine Realms with direct insight into all levels which can also be understood as the Intelligence ‘in’ the Divine Sap In the Tree of Life. It must be remembered that this Sacred Knowledge that is held in the Mystery Schools, has been passed down throughout antiquity to both sexes and later in various Orders to men and some women depending on the nature of the Organization.

In the Book, “Lecture on Masonic Symbolism” by Albert Pike, and transcribed and annotated by Rex R. Hutchens, Mr. Pike shows the relationship between Sanskrit and European languages as he clearly illustrates the linguistic affinities between Sanskrit, Greek and Latin. (Page xi, section II) Also, Pike believed early Masons had “intentionally concealed the real lessons and meanings of the symbols employed in the Art of Freemasonry as it was only to be revealed to those who had concord, union, and peace”; which we can also understand in the importance of revealing higher Truths to those individuals who have shown expansion of consciousness and heart.

The following sentence by Pike clearly reveals the Hidden Value of the Vedas as great Truths that open to the pure Initiate:

Question: “Why do you so often leave the West and journey to the East?”
Answer: “In Search of Light”.

The Vedas unfold the hidden Light of Knowledge, revealing to the pure mind and heart greater depths based on experiences which are the Key to the Source of Knowledge, or the Source of Thought in all subjects. Vast and profound, the entire field of Knowledge is open and leads one direct to the Divine, beyond space and time into Higher Dimensional realities of life as Sanskrit is the Language of Light.

Super Consciousness – Non-Relative
Higher Realms of Pure Consciousness, Transcendence goes past relative fields of mind to Divine Mind; Pure Supreme Divine Spirit and Finer Unified Fields of Intelligence. Both Relative and Non-Relative Elements and Senses have Relative as well as Absolute and Non-Relative Values.

Snake Medicine

(Inland Taipan)
Transmutation; Life Force

The Key words for Snake are: Transmutation, Life Force, New You, Wisdom, Growth & Awakening. The snake depicted on our card is the Inland Taipan but this card represents all snakes.

The snake is card number 40 which gives him the numerology vibration of 4. “The Number Four is the orchestrator, the interpreter of all forms, ideas, planning’s, renditions, insights, dream-works. It is a foundational energy upon which other energies are built to provide sustenance for existence. It works within the realms of growth, order, systems, and formulas seeking to provide a matrix for lasting stability. Time and Space are the working tools of this number.

Four is The Builder… Colours: Green, Blue, Indigo, Emerald, Coffee, Silver & Maroon. The Number Four finds the Materials and builds, shapes and moulds. Four is seen as representing the rational; relativity and justice. The symbol of measurement and foundation. Four is seen as the first solid number. It is spatial in scheme or order in manifestation. It is static as opposed to the circular and the dynamic. It is wholeness; totality; completion; solid. The are four cardinal points; four seasons; four winds; four directions (as in North, South, East, West); four elements (Fire, Water, Air, Earth) in the western culture. There are four sides to a square; four arms to a cross. There are four rivers to Paradise that formed a cross (the Garden of Eden was said to be within the four rivers). Within Paradise were four infernal regions, seas, and sacred mountains. There are four watches of the night and day, quarters of the moon. There are four quarters to the earth. As in other cultures, ceremonies and ritual acts are repeated in fours. The Native American cultures have used the number 4 most frequently as in the four cardinal directions. The four winds are depicted by the symbol of the cross and by the symbol of the swastika – a Native American symbol.

The rune symbol depicted on our snake card is the rune Berkana – this is the rune of personal growth and associated with fertility. This symbol is regarded as sacred.

Our snake is depicted slithering down a yellow (mustard) rectangle to represent the shedding of the old ways to allow for the new growth. This is an extremely earthy card within the deck and reminds you to stay well grounded and earthed. The crystal of snake is chrysoprase and advises you to step into your acceptance of the all – this is the place of Great Wisdom. Snake in the Chinese culture is the symbol of wisdom and beauty.

The Medicine

The medicine of Snake is Transmutation and Life-force. Inland Taipan is one of Australia’s most deadly and aggressive snakes. He has a heightened sense of smell and sight. Taipan is active almost all day and part of the night. Snake medicine is powerful medicine because Transmutation is essential to all life. The Snake sheds his old skin in the transmutation process bringing forth his new self. Allowing all that is past to be released as he has out grown it, released it and now welcomes all that is positive and new to be engaged. Snake relies on his internal life-force to determine when the time it right to call on his transmutation powers. Snake medicine is the LIFEFORCE within, the rising serpent to our own awakening.

The Shadow Side
You refuse to let go of the past and hold back your new growth.

The Crystal – Chrysoprase
Chrysoprase brings in acceptance of self and allows you to understand your patterns of growth.

The Message
If snake has slithered past you, you are being asked by ‘Spirit’ to shed your old ways and transmute into the NEW YOU. The life-force is within you, allow it to show you the way to let go and move on to your new beginnings. A new cycle is about to begin and your new growth is here at hand. Embrace the wisdom snake has brought your way. It may be time to move house , change jobs or change your hair style.

Affirmation : I am life and I renew daily

Snake Power Animal Symbol Of Death Rebirth

As snake sheds its skin so we can shed our illusions and limitations. Then we are able to use our vitality and desires to achieve wholeness.

Snakes deserve respect. Throughout history the snakes have had many legends surrounding them, linking them to creation, fertility and transformation. Nowhere are the differences between cultures and religions more sharply emphasized than in their attitudes towards Snake, differences which will also uncover different vistas on elementary aspects of being alive.

On one level, the differences relate to sexuality. We see the snake enticing Eve in the Garden of Eden, being symbolized as Vinata the Indian goddess, or shown as the legs of Cernunnos the Celtic fertility god. In Hinduism, kundalini, or serpent fire, is coiled at the base of the spine. As we mature emotionally and spiritually, the energy rises, stimulating the chakras, which are emotional, mental, and spiritual energy centres. This is also shown in the worldwide symbol of the spiral. This flow of energy is indispensable for good health, and the Greeks, in their own understanding of this, used the snake as a symbol of healing and wisdom.

In Israel the snake was regarded as the earth mother and played a role in fertility. In Egypt the cobra was known for its ability to expand the upper neck into a disc shape by spreading its ribs, symbolizing immortality. Snake was also considered to represent inner vision. Christian lore sees the snake rising from the chalice of St. John, wound around a cross sometimes portrayed with a woman’s head to depict lust and temptation.

For time immemorial people have associated Snake with both male and female aspects of sexuality. In religions where sexuality, in both its physical and spiritual aspects is celebrated, Snake has been held with honour. More repressive belief systems have linked snake to evil.

The Celts sometimes called the Druids, leaders and teachers in poetry, music, the law, spiritual wisdom, and healing, adders. Sadly, the more stiff practitioners of the Judeo-Christianism seemed to fear wisdom. When St. Patrick bragged that he had driven all of the snakes out of Ireland, he meant the Druids. The apple the snake gave Eve was from the Tree of Knowledge.

This is just a start to the contradictory attitudes towards Snake. The snake also represents aliveness, as expressed in sensuality – in this case meaning feeling and responding to stimuli, and more generally, to the flow of energy which creates us and makes us alive.

When snakes shed their skin, they metamorphose into a new being. This is very significant to those with snake as power animal, symbolising our ability to shed beliefs and habits which we have outgrown, moving into higher spiritual energy. The ability to do this is wisdom.

The shedding of the skin is also associated with astral travel and out of body experiences. The eyes of a snake are always open and are protected by immobile transparent scales. Before shedding their skin the snakes markings become obscure and the eyes appear opaque or blue, giving them a trance like appearance as if they are looking right through you. Learning how to see into the hearts of others is part of what we are taught by snake.

On the deepest level Snake’s skin shedding symbolizes death and rebirth, an idea which is depicted by the image of a snake swallowing its own tail, a symbol of eternity. The Snakes medicine is not to be treated lightly. Its meaning touches on the deepest mysteries in life. If you are ready to shed your own skin, Snake is ready and waiting to guide you through the spiral path of transformation. On a material level snake is vitality, on an emotional level ambition and dreams, on a mental level intellect and power, and on the highest level, the spiritual level wisdom, understanding and wholeness.

Snakes / serpent’s power includes – Being the messenger of the Rainbow Serpent, wisdom, healing, initiation, elusiveness, manipulation of lightning, transmutation, exploration of the mysteries of life, primitive or elemental energy, protection from religious persecution, goddess energy, psychic energy, creative power, immortality and the connection to, or forming, the magic cord by which the shaman travels to the soul world. Snake medicine is the energy of wholeness, cosmic consciousness, and the ability to experience anything willingly and without resistance. It is the knowledge that all things are equal in creation, that all is one.

Snake is a powerful animal guide, a symbol of transformation and healing. The snake is wisdom expressed through healing. This is a protector and guardian. If snake has come into your life, your creative forces are awakening. Your intuition will strengthen and be more accurate.

When on the move snakes make no noise whatsoever. They are invisible when resting and are unable to produce their own body heat, often to be seen lying in the sun. The suns warmth together with their behavior regulates their body temperature. They don’t rely on the energy of food to generate body heat and can survive on scanty diets for long periods of time. Those with snake as power animal need very little food for energy. They are usually cold, with body temperatures below average, and prefer warmer climates.

Snakes do not have eardrums nor external ear openings. Instead they have small bones in the head that conduct sound. They can hear low frequency sounds and sense vibrations that travel through the earth. This links them to the underworld where secrets are kept.

The snake depicts healing on a cellular level. With their lightweight and flexible bodies they possess extremely fast and agile. If snake enters your life, expect swift changes to sweep through your life. These changes denote death of the old and a birth into untapped power, creativity and wisdom. Snake is very powerful to have to have as a guide. It is the guardian of sacred places and the keeper of concealed knowledge.
