 Title : IS THE SECRET OF SHRI KRISHNAS RAASLEELA HIDDEN IN THE VEDS Author : Shri Rasik Bihari Manjul

It is frequently seen that the language of devotees is quite different from that of writers and artists. The devotees describe everything not in so many words, but with emotions. One should not look at their words, rather, one should sense their emotions. Although the Veds were written hundreds of thousands of years before the birth of Lord Krishna, His life story appears in the Veds. Manu has even said in the Manu Smriti that first there were the words of the Veds, and men’s names came afterwards, and as such, there is no history in them. But one is astonished to read that when blessing the great poet saint Sur Das, his disciple, Shri Nathji says that Shri Krishna is the Supreme Almighty. When all the Richas from the Veds got weary of praising Him and began saying "Neti-Neti", i.e., not this one, Lord Krishna manifested Himself before them and blessed them that all of them would be Gopis in the next life and He Himself would play Raas with them all and make them happy.

The Lord Almighty who is the Guru of all Gurus, told Sur Das, "O Sur Das, listen. Anyone who reads my praises written by you will be with me and he will be immortal in the Go-Lok. Anyone who reads the Sur Sarawali regularly will fulfill all his wishes and he will have devotion. I will be with anyone who learns it, remembers it or listens to it. Anyone who sings the Leelas and worships Radha-Krishna and contemplates this form of mine, does not have to be born again in the form of a human being."

It is clear from what the Lord has said in blessing Sur Das, that there has to be a mention of it in the Veds. Neither the Lord nor His devotees would lie, and so, when I studied the Veds from this viewpoint, I found six Mantras which do indeed have a mention of it. Please read these Mantras:

RigVed 1/30/5.

RigVed 1/10/7

RigVed 1/32/11

AtharvaVed 3/15/3

RigVed 8/93/13

RigVed 10/21/3

If I am not being too partial, is it not true that all the various personalities like Radha, Gou, Braj, Gopi, Vrishabhanu, Rohini, Krishna, his great friend Arjun have appeared here in these Mantras? Was it not based on these persons that Vyas had created the Bhagwat? Even the great saint poet Sur Das has based his Sur Sarawali, in which Lord Vishnu Himself lived in the form of Lord Krishna, and His 24 manifestations have been explained in 1107 lyrics. These manifestations are: 1. Varah, 2. Yajna, 3. Kapil, 4. Dattatreya, 5. Santkumar, 6. NarNarayan, 7. Hari, 8. Hans, 9. Pruthu, 10. Rishabhdev, 11. Hayagreeva, 12. Matsya, 13. Kachchap, 14. Nrisinha, 15. Narayan that freed the Elephant, 16. Manu, 17. Mohini, 18. Dhanvantari, 19. Vaman, 20. Parshuram, 21. Ram, 22. Krishna, 23. Buddha, 24. Kalki.

The great poet saint Sur Das has written the stories of these manifestations in a wonderful manner, and he has concluded this great book with this line: "Iti Shri Sur Dasjikrut Samvatsar Leela Tatha Sava Lakh Padonka Suchi Patra Samapta."

Epilogue:

Why should we blame our great poet when we find in the Veds names of historically famous great kings and emperors like Pururava, Aayu, Nahush, Yadu, Turvash, Puru, Duhya, Anu, as well as Ikshwaku, Ambarish, Trishanku, names of great Rishis, the famed youth of Chyawan, VipraRajya, ChandraNagari, various directions, rivers, cities, or even foreign countries like Gandhar?

RigVed (1/26/7) writes, "Come near, touch me, do not consider me inferior because I have fleece like the sheep from Gandhar. So, consider me normal." Here, the sheep grazing in the land of Gandhari have been described. It is clear from this that the land with sheep with excellent fleece is called Gandhari, and today’s Gandhar, i.e., Afghanistan is famous for these sheep. Queen Gandhari from the Mahabharat (the wife of King Dhritarashtra) was from Gandhar. Jamnalal Akhtar has written that the Veds were written in Afghanistan, because Afghanistan was a part of India in those times. The geographical theory that the earth which was once contracted is now expanding slowly is also a proof of this.

There is a mention of Rome and Russia in the RigVed (8/4/2).

The word ‘Magadh’ appears in the AtharvaVed Kand 15 in the same way. Here, with the mention of Punschali and Magadh Vigyan, a relation with the dawn and electricity is explained. There are so many mentions of names like these in the Veds. To conclude, I would like to say that the Almighty wants love rather than worship. Poets do have the right to imagine, just that it should be easy, natural and true. Using the same truth, when a poet creates poetry and beauty by also adding well-being to it, his poetry becomes truly great. The way in which Sur Das has related the name of Lord Krishna with the Shrutis from the Veds and names from the Bhagwat is so tenacious, that no experts have had the temerity to challenge it. The Veds say that the king should establish many Vrajs. This means that any location where there are cattle is called Vraj. RigVed considers even the sun and earth as Vraj, meaning that sun rays are taken to be cows and cattle. So, if Sur Das uses the same things and creates such great poetry, why should anyone object? Lord Krishna says on the rhythmic beats of drums: I always play with the Gopis, touching their bodies. Is there anyone who can stop me?
