Vedic Language - #Brahmi

      Vedic ideologies are contained in Brahmi; the oldest root of all the languages. Modern commentators perceived Vedas are in Sanskrit and doing distorted interpretation. So Veda is not understood. There are very few, nearly, 10-12 Brahmi language experts there in India. Rest of the scholars are interpreting from the roots of Sanskrit. Hence Veda has become complex, unsolvable mystery. To understand Vedas one has to learn Brahmi language, identify the word differences caused by the incomplete scripts from other languages, revise the words with respect to original language, then of course Veda will reveal itself to you and becomes understood. Else, Veda might be perceived as an unsolvable mystery, which is due to one's wimp.

How to understand Vedas? First learn one of the efficient Indian languages and get become language expert. Try to learn Brahmi from the known finger countable people. Practice Brahmi based Vedic grammar.  Do hard work, study and practice 54 Aksharas - Alphabets, 10 Sanjnas - Signs, 7 Bindus - Points (E.g., Nasalized Vowels), 13 Sutras - formulas. Its called as Akshara Vidhya. In alternative approach, if an individual gains Akshara Vidhya, then will get the knowledge of Vedic language and thus the Vedas. First, practice alphabets - Akshara Abhyaasa in Brahmi (or at least a perfect Indian language, but not the business language like English). Gain the Aksha Vidhya. Then study Vedic literature. Practice the following Vedic Dasha Maha Vidhyas :
Vyakarana, Chandas, Swara, Maatraa, Prastaara,
Sanjna, Naadabindu, Laghu, Guru, Udaattha, Swaritha, Anudaattha ||
Attain the knowledge of these (10) Dasha Vidhyas and continue the Veda Paarayana - Chanting Vedas. Then Veda will become Vedya - Understood and experienced by itself. Then one will reach the altitude and could be really honored as Veda Murthy, Veda Brahma etc.,


  1. Thanks for telling that there is a language called as Brahmi, which is claimed as the root of all languages. Is Sanskit originated from Brahmi? What is the origin of this word Brahmi? Is it from Brahma? What is Brahma Gnana? Brahma Muhurtha? How the brahmi, the memory power inducing plant got its name? Why Dharmaputhra was called as 'hey Brahmin' by Lord Krishna... Many questions in mind pop up. Please clear some of these to open up my mind to attain something waiting to fill in it.

  2. All the languages originated from Braahmi. There was something called zero: '0' as said in Saankyaa or there was only NAADA before creation. When that Zero or Naada become Prakata, it became Braahmi. Development of other languages happened in different places & timeline. As per my limited knowledge, Braahmi = Starting point (Aarambha Bindu). So the starting point of creation was initiated by a person who is called as Brahma. So Brahma is the Anvarthaka Naama designated for creator of this nature.

    During understanding the secrets of nature bound to the Kaala, Paraashara Muni identified day is divided into Braahmi, Praatah, Madhyaanha, Kutupa, Saayam, Sandhyaa, Raatri RaaNi's Kaala divided as Para & Aparaa. So Braahmi Muhurtha which is 2 Ghati (48 minutes) before the Sunrise is considered as starting point of the day.

    Braahmi Abhyaasa starts with two lessons from Akshara Vidhya viz.

    1. Memorization of Moola Satwaas of every thing in the Nature in symbolic form
    2. Linking any Vichaara with the Moola Satwaas & writing in Braahmi Lipi.

    In the first Saadhana during study of Braahmi, its the Saadhanaa of Dhee Shakti & Medhaa Shakti. As some medicinal property present in Bacopa monnieri, it is also called as Braahmi in Ayurveda.

    Brahma Sutra = Which covers every knowledge of this nature. So comprehensive Vaidhika BhautaShaastra
    itself is the Brahma Sutra.

    Brahma Jnaana = Knowledge of everything in the Nature.

    Brahma Jnaani = One who understand everything in the nature.

    One question is already answered in Mahaabhaarata:-

    Yaksha: When can a brahmin be called a brahmin? By his birth? By his vidya? By the way of his life (vrutthena)?

    Yudhishtra: A Brahmin cannot be called as a Brahmin by his birth. Not by his vidya (learning). Only by his way of life. There is not an iota of doubt about this. It is his duty to sustain this path. If this is lost, everything is lost.

    Yaksha: Who can be called a wiseman?
    Yudhishtra: The one who knows and understands dharma is the wise one.

    More information, more scientific knowledge, more exposure, more memory power ..... more intelligence does not make one wise. The wisdom is in assessing what is dharma (right) and what is adharma (wrong) in a given situation and follow the path of dharma.

    Vyaasji dictated Jaya Samhita (Mahaabhaarata) which was written by Ganapati. The rule was that Ganapti has to understand & scribe the shlokas dictated by Vyaasji. It is said that even Ganapati was struggling during writing the shlokas. So where we can be to understand the Jayaakhya Samhita? There is particular reason behind calling with different names for the same person. We can notice that the same person is called as Yudhishtira, Dharmaraaya, Dharmaputra, Ajaatashatru, etc., These are all Anwarthaka Naamaas perfectly used as per the context.

    *Good, continue to pose the questions. I will try to answer in limited human capability.

  3. Very clear interpretation of Brahmi lipi.
    As the language of Vedas was not possible to write Kanthastha and Hridayadtha pattern were followed in Gurukulas. Great information shared indeed. Thank you.
