Wisdom from the Vedas


“Do not be led by others, awaken your own mind,
amass your own experience, and decide for yourself your own path.”
-The Atharva Veda

“On this Earth do I stand,
“Unvanquished, unslain, unhurt.
Set me, O Earth, amidst the nourishing strength
That emanates from thy body.
The Earth is my mother,
her child am I!”
-the Atharva Veda

“Through all this world strode Vishnu:
thrice his foot he planted,
and the whole world was gathered in his footsteps.
Vishnu, the guardian,
he whom none deceiveth,
made three steps and established his laws.”
-the Sama Veda (8:2:5)
