Great Learnings of Rigveda on Leadership Skills

According to Hindu tradition, the Rigvedic (ऋग्वेद) hymns were collected by Paila under the guidance of Vyās Rishi, who compiled the Rigveda Samhita as we know it. According to the Śatapatha Brāhman, the number of syllables in the Rigveda is 432,000, equaling the number of muhurtas (1 day = 30 muhurtas) in forty years. This statement stresses the underlying philosophy of the Vedic books that there is a connection (bandhu) between the astronomical, the physiological, and the spiritual. Thus not only the words and mantras had connection with the nature but even how they were formed had contextuality to the science of cosmos.

The authors of the Brāhmana literature discussed and interpreted the Vedic ritual. Yaska was an early commentator of the Rigveda by discussing the meanings of difficult words. In the 14th century, Sāyana wrote an exhaustive commentary on it.

A number of other commentaries bhāṣyas were written during the medieval period, including the commentaries by Skandasvamin (pre-Sayana, roughly of the Gupta period), Udgitha (pre-Sayana), Venkata-Madhava (pre-Sayana, c. 10th to 12th centuries) and Mudgala Purana (after Sayana, an abbreviated version of Sayana’s commentary).

Since the 19th and 20th centuries, Swami Dayanand Saraswati Ji, founder of the Arya Samaj, Sri Aurobindo Ji among others have attempted to re-interpret the Vedas to conform to modern and established moral and spiritual norms. Swami Dayanand Ji considered the Vedas (which he defined to include only the samhitas) to be source of truth, totally free of error and containing the seeds of all valid knowledge.

Here we are presenting simplest of the understandable quotes which will help materialistic men and woman to lead life in this competitive world. You can become leader while following the advice (given in quotes format) of Rigved. The results seen are highly effective and many motivational speakers actually use these quotes as themes of their books. Its better to read the roots than hang on the branches. Presented here are the true source of great knowledge – the root cause of thousands of motivational books.

      If you cannot chant using mouth then you can chant using mind.

      The Sawan month is auspicious and chanting ॐ नमः शिवाय and praying Bhagwan Shiv can help anyone immensely.

      Wake up early in the morning at 4:30 (Brahma Muhurat) Chant 108 times “Om” ॐ and then Chant ॐ नमः शिवाय for 1 lac 25,000 times in a month. You can chant daily 4000 times ॐ नमः शिवाय mantra. So in a month you can easily cross 1,25,000 times of chanting mantra. It will give rise to your subtle body, physical body helps in connecting with subtle body. Limitations of physical body can be surpassed realizing subtle body.

      You will get cured only if its possible in medical. But you can use your present human form to get closer to Bhagwan.

      Jai Shree Krishn
