    there are two types of Vedas.

    1. the authentic true Vedas.

    2. the un-authentic and mis- translated and interpreted Vedas by mundane scholars.

    Both are on-line when you google.

    It takes a devoted sincere heart to know the difference..... because at a glance they may seem the same - but the difference is as black is to white in essence.

    To someone who does not subscribe to the "authority" of the Vedas or does not share your chosen belief system, "the difference" doesn't make any difference.

    Wow what timing! Lucky for me you posted this warning. I was just about to immerse myself into the teaching of the false Vedas using Google. I defy anyone to tell me that reading this forum is a waste of time.

    On a couple of occasions I have cited Vedic teachings and suggested that you have not been following these.

    On these occasions, you have not chosen to respond, but I found it interesting that you did not reply and simply deny that this was correct. So let me ask you straight.

    Do you believe that the tone and manner of your postings (as opposed to content) in this forum are consistent with what is taught by the Vedas?

    If so, then I presume that you also do not agree with my assertion that the Vedas encourage a patient and constructive approach to help people see the truth.

    Could you also cite where in the Vedas it encourages its followers to use language incorrectly, to use inflammatory language, and to label everyone who disagrees with you as "dishonest", rather than "incorrect".

    I thought he was talking about you quoting the Vedas at him.

    You may be right. But my point was that he did not say "Hey, that's all wrong, that's a bad translation, you need to read this bit as well." He just ignored it. So I thought I would ask him again directly.

    It's a bit like me saying "You are a murderer" and you replying "You have no evidence to support that statement, and what's more you are not a policemen." Well, maybe so, but that does not affect the truth or otherwise of the allegation.

    So again, I just want to know if Dasa believes that the tone and manner of his postings are consistent with Vedic teachings as he understands them and why. The only reference source I have is Google and him. Google seems to support one view but may, as he says, represent a false interpretation. He refrains from commenting on his view.

    It takes a quick look and half a brain to know the difference.

    For people to trust you, Dasa or even heed you at all, when you say your version of the Vedas is the right one and everybody else's is wrong, requires you to be able to command respect for both your beliefs and for the way you go about advocating them. You do not command respect here; at least that's my perception.

    My best wishes for your study of the Vedas ! I venture to suggest, that unless you already have some background in the study of Sanskrit, some knowledge of Hindu philosophy, you may find the Vedic teachings either too obscure or unrelated to theology. Better start with the study of the Bhagavat Geeta ? An easier-to-comprehend thinner book and much more practical too.
