The Vedas represent not merely the dawn of culture, but also its zenith. We see in it the whole process of evolution, from its beginning to its completion.
"The Vedas", Sri Mahaswami of Kanchi Peetam affirms, "represent the lofty principle that it is the one Truth that is envisaged as all that we perceive."All sounds originate in space. From them arose creation. According to science, the cosmos was produced from the vibrations in space. By virtue of their austerities the sages had the gift of seeing the mantras in space, the mantras that liberate men from this creation. The Vedas are apauruseya (not the work of any human author) and are the very breath of the Paramatman in his form as space. The sages saw them and made a gift of them to the world.
