the Vedas

On the morning of March 20, 2018, as I began making a rough copy of this entry, I sent my daughter Nina to the "first autonomous bookstore in France" Mollat's in central Bordeaux to buy "The Vedas".  She came back empty-handed and told me, "They don't have the Vedas. They said, 'Nobody comes in n' ask for that book, ever.'" She concluded by the words, "Bordeaux if an heathenish city." One billion Hindus' sacred book is unobtainable in the seventh urban area of France. It's astounding, albeit it reflects the French people's disinterest in  the sacred Sources and unconcern for the links likely to be between them.

I would need a vast space to introduce the readers the Vedas, the oldest Revelation known to man or rather the remains of it in my opinion, because the Calls from Heaven, which the Vedas still holds, like all the Calls from Heaven everywhere on earth have been distorted, mutilated and tampered with by religion.
As I am short of space, I can just evoke the Vedas. I do so to to give the readers of the blog that have no knowledge of them an idea of what the Vedas are.

Ignoring the Vedas is not blameworthy. You may disregard them just as you may disregard the Bible or Quran, Only The Revelation of Arès is free from every gloss (10/10), it is the unaltered Call for penitence and the harvest of penitents, which the Father, the Life, has launched.
For millennia God has called on humans to regain the Edenic virtue.  Sadly, the men that do as He says are fewer and fewer, but the far oldest memories of the Call can still be heard.

Upanishad-Écouter le maître
Upanishad = The master's lesson to anyone who hears him out

"Why has God always given His Word in the wilderness? In order that no man claims It as his," says a traditional Jewish adage that refers to the far-off days when deserts belonged to no nation. The Vedas are likewise Revelations that lack a host or owner, because they are only known as Sanskrit translations, but it is well-known that they were revealed from time immem­orial in long-forgotten languages. Some say their oldest parts date at the 19th century before Christ. The Vedas' universality is unquestionable. We could be amazed at the fact that they ended up in India and nowhere else, if we were unaware that each of the ambitious founders of religion on earth has wanted his own sacred book and dismissed all the other books, the Vedas uncluded.
The Vedas quiver with Life (Rev of Arès 24/5) like all divine Sources even as they are blue-penciled, distorted or weighing down with men's books (16/12, 35/12); they are not dead writings. Sanskrit Veda means view or knowledge (inner view). Beneath their spoiled paganized forms the Vedas keep on giving the ones who read them, provided they are free (10/10) from all prejudices, an intuitive close view of the Creator; they evade the sinful world's constraints and enable penitents to find a right personal path towards the Heights (25/5). Notably, the Vedas enable a lot of Indians, those who avoid superstition, to awaken the Father's image and likeness, the spiritual life, within themselves and drag themselves from Evil. The Westerners should not disregard their Far-Eastern style, because the Truth is far more wide-ranging than the Scripture, which is just a gross way of clumsily expressing the Inexpressible. The Vedas disconcert a Westerner, because they mention "gods" like Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and so on, but they are like The Revelation of Arès which mention the Father and the Mother, because of the insuperable obstacle of the sinner's poor brain divided up in partitions, which cannot conceive the One Polymorphous Infinite Maker.
The Upanishads, which signal the move from Vedaism to Hinduism, but who keep their Vedic core, say, "The flame keeps unchanged over whatever burning fuel, and cows, whether fat or scraggy, whether white or multicolored, give the same milk, and the Thruth is like milk." Man has to conquer duality (see "nondualism" #171) and particularly conquer his base envies which cut him off from the True and himself and God be as one again (Rév d'Arès xxiv/1). We have to make the noise (ii/7-13, vii/4-16, etc.) be quiet so that we may hear the spiritual music. Which is found in the Vedas just as it is in The Revelation of Arès even though it's written in different ways.

It has to be said the very significant kinship between the Vedas and the Avesta, which is the sacred collection of books of Zoroastrians, whose prophet had been Sarsushtratam (Zoroaster, Rev of Arès xviii/3).

It is easier to understand the link between the Vestas and the earthly life by remembering that Mahatma Gandhi used to confuse "the struggle for social freedom" with "the need to meet God face to face".  This concept currently unachievable in the West we have to achieve as The Revelation of Arès obviously entices us to do. The Vedas, which are an enormous bulk of texts unavailable in the French tongue — though available in the English tongue: "The Sacred Books" —, are divided in Hymns, Charms, Liturgy, Speculations, but the four of them interpenetrate because they have been put in a rather inconsistent order. This is why people say the Vedas in the plural. Their exotic look and their "fairy tale" or "legend" side should be forgotten. What increases the number of characters and divides the ideas when they are read today was probably not felt as increased in number and divisible in the far-off days of the Revelation; the words have lost their original meanings, but when you read them unprejudicedly, you find the path to Oneness.

On death, however, discovering, rediscovering the Vedas or regularly reading them should really lead to further thought a Jew obsessed by the Hebraic Bible, a Christian obsessed by the Gospels, a Muslim obsessed by the Quran, an Arès Pilgrim obsessed by The Revelation of Arès, any believer on earth only stuck on his or her sacred Source.
We all are to die, for "life is short, but death is long" ("Christ Recrucified" by Nikos Kazantzakis) and to practice a spiritual ideal is to philosophize as well, that is, "to learn to die" (Plato, Cicero, Montaigne), and in conclusion all believers of all religions and unbelievers of all the reasons not to believe are to go to the same unlimited space, that the Father by opening my cage spread out straight ahead of me (Rév of Arès vi/1-5), provided they have got the goodness that the Light attracts.
How does a dying Jew picture himself? He is saved, but the goyim (the non-jewish) go to Sheol. How does a dying Christian picture himself? He is saved, but the others go to Hades ? How does a dying Muslim picture himself? He goes to Paradise, but the others suffer in Hell. And so on. Goodness gracious! What a crowd in Sheol, Hades, Hell, in all kinds of Gehenna in store for the tortured ones.
No! Once man is dead, religion disappears. It is not what you believe in, read or ritualize which creates your soul and saves you, but love, forgiveness, peace, which you free from all prejudices and any system have been practicing; it is what God calls penitence (Rév of Arès 30/11). Neither the non-believer nor the one that abides by another religion becomes a specter (4/6-7, 16/15-17, 33/32, etc.), but any mind deprived of a soul. A specter is about nothing; it is misfortune (33/32), but not suffering, for only man is cruel and  make others suffer, but God never tortures anybody. Besides, on the Day (31/8) God will remember the least splinter of bone in the depths and the least speck of hash (33/29), all the remains of any man whatever book a believer might have read (Bible, Quran, Véda, Tao Te King, Guru Granth Sahib, Kojiki, etc.) or a non-believer might have failed to read.
All the dead have the same fate, which proves that all of the sacred Sources are consubstantial. They are very dissimilar on the surface because cultures, poor languages with no alternative but ellipses and allegories to tell the absolute, local routines, historic events, religious and political interests, which are characteristic of the sinful world, have really left their marks on them. And yet behind the words, styles, periods, myths, man can see the eternal Return (Rev of Arès i/1) of our intimate relationship to the Whole, the absolute Life, of Which God, the Father, Allah, the Uncreated one, the Great Spirit, the One which has a thousand names, is just a representation.
