Excerpt From The Book

First Hymn

HIRANYAVARNÂM HARINÎM SUVARNA RAJATASRAJÂM
CHANDRAM HIRANMAYÎM LAKSHMÎM JATAVEDO MAMAVAHA

Meaning

Oh! Lord of Fire! From you, the Wisdom of the Vedas is born. You make the Goddess of Creation possess me, the Goddess who is an expression of the Golden Yellow hue and who is Herself an embodiment of the splendor of Gold.

She, who is adorned with jewels of Gold and Silver and who is of the Lunar nature may possess me as her own child.

COMMENTARY:

In the first two hymns of the Sûktam a prayer is made to the Cosmic Fire. I gave you a prayer relating to fire in three steps, when I taught you Ishavasya Upanishad.

Now there is a prayer seeking the Cosmic Fire to bestow on us that light, which is the golden hue, which is also the silver hue, which is ever changing and yet stable, which is ever permeating, and which is also reflecting and reflective.

First, the hymn speaks of Jataveda. Jataveda means the One from whom the Veda is born and it also means, the One who is born out of the Veda.

Who is Father and who is Son is a riddle. From out of the existence, whom we call the Father, the Veda comes. From out of the Veda, the Father comes again as the Son.

That is why the Son is considered as the repetition of the Father. The Son is no other than the father represented.

God is presented through the Son of God, because He cannot present himsel for your perception. He presents himself through a Son of God.

The Cosmic Fire is said to be born out of the Veda and the Veda itself is said to be born out of HIM. That is why HE is called in the Veda as Agni.

Agni means the foremost One. He is the one without whom nothing exists. If you take the number 1000000, how many zeros are in it?

It has 6 zeros. Suppose, from the 1000000, you remove the 1, what is the value? There is only one number, which is important. If that number 1 is removed, the rest is nothing!

So, we are asking Agni, the Most High, to bestow his light, the light of creation, upon us. We pray
