Believing in God is one of the basic things assumed in theories in the Vedas. All Vedi hymns are based on Gods and it is certain the every hymn in the Vedas has some name of God mentioned in it. However, knowledge of Gods in hymns is very religious. With knowledge of Gods, we can understand hymns. Maharshi Shounak Acharya is right in saying meaning of Shloka.

Acharya Yask in exposition of Vedas bring to attention the theories of God of Aryas apart from Agni, Indra, Varun, etc. Acharya Sayan, Mahishwar, Sushtav, etc. believe that these Gods of Vedas occupy certain position, which are appealed at the time of oblation, things are offered to them, which please these Gods and they will bless host of the oblation.

Macdonald, Maxmuller, A. B. Fish, Oldenberg, etc. western learned have done the comparative studies of the theories of Gods between the Vedic and European Gods and they have reached to the conclusion where they say that Vedic Gods are natural powers and dwell in haven. Furthermore, exegetics of modern systems, Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati, Yogi Shri Arvind has described the Vedic Gods with heavenly glory, Supreme Being, spiritual spirit.

Swami Dayanand did not consider Vasu, rudra, Aditya words as particular qualities of God, but considered these as epithets of Gods and gave them a meaning. He agreed in the Vedic chapter that Gods created the mature and kept it working and going. He also accepts the theory of power of 33 Gods. Dev (God) word comes from a substance with joining-‘ach’ suffix, and also a suffix – ‘tal’, makes a word supreme being. There is no meaning difference between "dev" and "devta" because Yaskacharya clears that the one who is dev is devta. The base of the similarity is in Rigveda as well as Brahmangranth. For example in Rigveda, the word God is used for Sun, Varuna, etc. However, Agni has always been addressed as God. Aitareya Brahmin calls both words as having similar meaning. In the same way, Shatpath and Ganpith Brahmins call 33 Gods as Dev.

Niruktakar Yask splits word "dev" as coming from the substances "da", "deep" with "dyu" suffixes and it is considered as wealth giving, having lights, glorious and dwelling in heaven.

Form this theory of Yask, it is indicated that according to the creator, Devta is not some rare thing but it is a natural power, which is beyond out reach, which lightens out life with light, water, etc.

The theory of God according to Shri Yogi Arvindji is that Vedas have two meanings. One is physical and the other is spiritual. They have seen different Gods in different inner forms while meditating. Vedic Gods are power and personality of worldly Gods. They also represent a special power of glorious world. According to him, the words of Vedic hymns indicate spiritual elements.

According to Swami Dayanand, meaning of word God is not the worshipped God but he denotes its meaning as giver of glorious qualities. Finally Swamiji clears debate of Bahudev and Vishudha Ekashwar. In his opinion, theories of many Gods by western learned are useless. Because Aryas have always been praising Indra, Varun, Rudra, Agni, etc. but have been worshipping one God always.

Thus it is clear that similar sounding names of Indra are not his second names, but they are the adjectives, which explain his infinite qualities.

In solar Gods of Vedas, Sun comes first. In Rigveda entire prayers are dedicated to the Sun and also 60 hymns from Yajurveda. According to Acharya Yask, the Sun is inspiring, regulating, and creating all moving as well as non-moving things in the world.

Each and every word of Sanskrit derives its meaning through substance and suffix. The word Savita is no exception. In Paniniya grammar, short and long substances come together to make it a subject, i.e. Savita. It means getting wealth, to inspire, release of animals, creating Gods and the lord of products.

In Bruhad Devta, Savita means Sun and it is explained as below. It is the brightest star, which gives light to the whole universe and for this reason, it is called Savitru. It gives life to the people and is called as "Bhag" and "Aaditya".

Vishnu Puran calls it Savita because it creates life. In Matsya Purana, it is said to be with Bharanarthak. Dhatu (substance). It is said that the glory is renowned by the Sun.

In Sanskrit dictionary, we find many different meanings for the word Savita. Vachaspatyam part 6 addresses it as the Creator of the world, Supreme Being, etc. In Sanskrit it means producer, creator, etc.

Monier Williams in his Sanskrit dictionary calls Savita as inspiring, stimulating, and life giving. McDonald calls Savita as – to inspire, to produce and to excite. In Shri Arvinda’s opinion, study of Savita is to get good qualities, increasing knowledge, achieving, speed, etc.

In the first chapter of Satyartha Prakash, Maharishi Dayanand says that the word Savita was produced from substance of son Abhishav and setting the creatures free. He says that he creates the world and thus it is addressed by the name of God, i.e. Savita and it also has a practical meaning. Savita and Sun are closely related, but they are different Gods. The way body and soul are closely related in humans, in the same way Savita is soul and Sun is the body.

We can conclude thus that there can be two different grammatical meanings but physically they are one, for example to give a birth to infant in the womb. Thus inspiring and creating all creatures is related to God Savita.
