VED VANI

वेद वाणी : शुक्ल यजुर्वेद
या ते धामान्य् उश्मसि गमध्यै यत्र गावो भूरिशृङ्गा ऽ अयासः । अत्राह तद् उरुगायस्य विष्णोः परमं पदम् अव भारि भूरि । ब्रह्मवनि त्वा क्षत्रवनि रायस्पोषवनि पर्य् ऊहामि । ब्रह्म दृम्̐ह क्षत्रं दृम्̐हायुर् दृम्̐ह प्रजां दृम्̐ह ॥
~ शुक्लयजुर्वेद ६.३
...
" हे यज्ञीय संसाधनो ! जो सूर्य-रश्मियों से प्रकाशित हैं, सर्वव्यापक सम्मानीय भगवान् विष्णु का जो परम धाम हैं, हम आपको ऐसे उत्तम स्थान में पहुँचने की इच्छा करते हैं | हम आपको ब्राह्मण, क्षत्रिय एवं वैश्य आदि वर्णों में यथा-योग्य उचित रीति से बल-वैभव का वितरण करने वाला मानते हैं | अतः आप ब्रह्मनिष्ठों को सद्ज्ञान की सम्पद, क्षत्रियों को पौरुष-पराक्रम एवं वैश्यों को धन-ऐश्वर्य प्रदान करें, प्रजा की आयु और उसकी संख्या में वृद्धि करें | "
विष्णोः कर्माणि पश्यत यतो व्रतानि पस्पशे ।
इन्द्रस्य युज्यः सखा ॥
~ शुक्लयजुर्वेद ६.४

" हे याजकों ! सर्वव्यापक भगवान् विष्णु के सृष्टि संचालन सम्बन्धी कार्यों को (प्रजनन, पोषण एवं परिवर्तन की पक्रिया को) ध्यान से देखे | इसमें अनेकानेक नियमों-अनुशासनों का दर्शन किया जा सकता हैं | आत्मा के योग्य मित्र उस परम सत्ता के अनुकूल बनकर रहें (अर्थात् ईश्वरीय अनुशासनों का पालन करें |) "
Purport :
(By Swami Dayananda Sarswati of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam)
Whether you have dismissed or accepted God, his existence remains a mystery to you, for you find yourself in a given scheme of things that consists of certain laws. These laws are many and varied but they do form a universe. You can, perhaps, even reduce this entire universe to mathematical equations. You can have differing standpoints based on these equations and derive different models of the universe. One thing is very clear, however: whatever be the standpoint, there is a given world, a given scheme of things. And in the scheme of things you find you are a person, an individual. This individual has certain endowments, a physical body that is alive, was born alive, is capable of growing into adulthood, and is subject to aging and passing away. These are given facts. When I look at this body I find it consists of certain laws, niyati. The body is caused by, and is subject to, certain biological laws. There also are physiological laws that govern the body, and there are definitely psychological laws. So, too, there are laws governing your ability to remember, to recall. There are laws governing your knowing and not knowing. All these laws can be brought under one word : ‘order’. There is a physical order outside, a biological order, a physiological order, a psychological order, and there is an intellectual or epistemological order. All these constitute one huge order that is given.
तद् विष्णोः परमं पदम्̐ सदा पश्यन्ति सूरयो दिवीव चक्षुर् आततम् ॥
~ शुक्लयजुर्वेद ६.५
" ज्ञानीजन विश्वव्यापी भगवान् विष्णु के सर्वोच्च पद को, द्युलोक में परिव्याप्त दिव्यप्रकाश की भाँति देखते हैं (अर्थात् उस परमात्मा की व्यापकता का अनुभव करते हैं |)
