Agniveer symbolizes the efforts of a soul marching towards the ultimate goal through destruction of ego and falsehood. With focus only on right knowledge, right actions and right devotion. In other words, Agniveer stands for compassion, character, tolerance and rational humanism. Agniveer believes in One World, One Humanity, One Family.
  • Agniveer ji …why don’t you upload 4 vedas english in this website ? that would be easy for all of us to gain knowledge is there any fund problem ? then i can totally understand but it would be very convenient for everyone to learn vedas for free because only Ralph Griffith version is available and its not authentic

  • I cannot buy the 4 vedas with english translation of Dr Tulsi Ram. How can i get the books and pay the payments? I also cannot find any link regarding buying the book. All i have found the link is dead. I am from Germany and a Hindu.

    • The publisher has asked us to stop distribution and promotion of these books for inexplicable reasons. We are also in surprise why one would do so. We have been trying to work things out but in vain. This happened last year after we published a series of posts opposing Kashmir separatism. It is extremely unfortunate but we are legally bound to honor decision of publisher. We are trying to bring forth alternative translations that do not violate any copyrights.

      • —The publisher has asked us to stop distribution and promotion of these books for inexplicable reasons. —
        A society doesnt need any enemy if its filled with such kind of people. Shame on the publisher.

      • The reason given by publisher was that Agniveer conspired with Google and Adobe to violate copyright by following:
        – Allowing google to show link to purchase of book in its search results
        – Allowing Adobe Acrobat to open and email pdf file in other systems apart from one from which buyer first downloaded the file.

        We tried to explain him the technology behind google and pdf files. It resulted in he threatening us with legal and “other” consequences. He also convinced the author that Agniveer violated his copyright in collusion with anti-vedic agents like Google and Adobe.

      • The author is completely unknown to computer technology and hence trusted the publisher. Initially we thought the publisher was just making some kind of joke. But when he started giving threats and abuses did we realize that all this is true! This happened immediately after we published articles against Kashmiri separatism and fanatics. Nonetheless, we are determined to identify the enemies in guise and surmount all obstacles despite their enmity. When one is in path of Ishwar, nothing else matters.

      • Google & Adobe as anti-vedic agents? Whatever the publisher meant by that but its a pity that he was even able to convince the wisest person among us of this nonsense. I blame the Author too for blocking it.

        The other faiths are providing their religious books free of cost & here we are fighting over copyright violations. The publisher is a disgrace on entire Humanity!

        And of course, salute to your fighting spirit Agniveer depsite of being heavily outnumbered in every aspect. May you & your tribe keep growing.

      • I have a poem to dedicate your fighting spirit.

        Robert Browning in his inspirational poem, Prospice.

        “Fear death? – to feel the fog in my throat,

        The mist in my face,

        When the snows begin, and the blasts denote

        I am nearing the place,

        The power of the night, the press of the storm,

        Yet the strong man must go:

        For the journey is done, and the summit attained,

        And the barriers fall,

        Though a battle is to fight, ere the guerdon be gained,

        The reward of it all.

        I was ever a fighter, so – one fight more,

        The best and the last! “

      • Wow, so now they are trying to stop the spread of the Vedas. Wow. Pretty scary. Who is the publisher. I would like to know.

  • This is really best.
    I am delighted and I promised myself to transfer every possible knowledge of veda to All who seeks. Ofcourse its limited to what I have read and gain so far :).

  • I write a comment each time I like a post on a site or if I have something to add to the discussion.
    Usually it is a result of the fire displayed in the article I read.
    And after this post 4 Veda Samhitas — Self-Help | Motivation | Spiritualism | Rationalism | Vedas | Hinduism |
    Anti-Casteism | Women Rights – Agniveer. I was moved enough to drop
    a comment 😛 I do have some questions for you if you don’t mind.

    Is it simply me or does it seem like a few of these responses look as if they are coming
    from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting at other
    online sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
    Could you make a list the complete urls of all your shared sites

  • these allegations are based on reincarnation verses in the vedas if you have already addessed these allegation tell me where?

    • “O soul, God grants for thy bodies in different births, according to thy DEEDS a happy or unhappy place on this earth. May radiant beams prove helpful to thee!” (Chapter 35, verse 2, Yajur Veda) Translated by Devi Chand M.A.

      • yes but some fantics have tried to use other translation to support their view as they claim i want agniveer to address this so that i can reply as i dont know sanskrit and i have not read rig veda,atharva and sam ved yet

  • in that case can you translate these verse or give me the authentic translation possibly from one of these translators if they exist? Rigveda Mandal 10, Sookt 59, Mantras 6-7,Yajurveda chapter 4, Mantra 15 when translating this keep in mind Shatapath Brahman 3:2:2:23 ,Atharvaveda 7/67/1,Atharvaveda 5/1/2,Yajurveda Adhyaai 19, Mantra 47 and keep in mind Shatpatha Brahmana 12/8/1/21 and now the next one is allegation made against you by a muslim fantic Rigveda 1/24/1-2

    • This is a long list. Would request you to review articles on Vedas on our site. Many of them may already have been addressed. If you list allegations made on these, it would be easy to track which article may have covered it.

      • Some articles have been temporarily withdrawn. Don’t worry, they would be back soon. The translations are based on works of Swami Dayanand. You can review them in Introduction to Vedas and Satyarth Prakash.

      • Hi Agniveer,

        Thanks for replying and getting back to us. I do make the assumption that Dayanand was the brains behind it. I know he translated from Sanskrit to Hindi. What we want to know is the people who brought it from Sanskrit to English or Hindi to English. We understand Dayanand was the one who taught the methodology to us, but we need to know who used that system and brought the translation ENGLISH.

        Dhanyavad,
        Krishnarao

      • Namaste Agniveer,

        Yes, it might be a literal translation of Dayanand’s work, but who did that literal translation to English. I have a copy of the Vedas translated into English by the Arya Samaj Organization. The Yajur Veda copy I have was done by Devi Chand M.A. And I assume they used Dayanand’s method to translate either from Sanskrit or Hindi to modern english. In your case, who is the person or people who the literal translation into English?

        I’m sorry to put you guys on the spot, but it will be very helpful to us. And I understand there might be need to protect the identity of some of the people do the translation, and if that is the case, please tell us that person or people want their identity protected or they just don’t want to be in the public eye. Either way, tell us the name of the translator or translator into English (whether it was literal or not of Dayanand’s method) or tell us at this time Agniveer does not wish to reveal the identity of the individuals who translated the material.

        Dhanyavad,
        Krishnarao

      • Rigveda 10.59.6-7:
        O Blissful Ishwar, Please provide us again healthy eyes and other sense organs in next birth. Please provide us powerful vitality, mind, intellect, valor again and again in next births. We achieve bliss in this life and future lives. May we keep looking up to your glory always. Keep us in peace with your blessings.

        O Ishwar, you provide us space, earth and other elements again and again so that our sense organs function. You provide us the ability to have good health and enjoy life in every birth. You make us strong again and again in various births.

      • ___________________________________________________
        Yajurveda 4.15:
        Whenever we take birth, may our deeds be such that we get a pure mind, long life, good health, vitality, intellect, strong sense organs and a powerful body. In next life also, keep us away from bad deeds and indulge us in noble actions.
        ___________________________________________________
        Atharvaveda 7.67.1:
        May we get healthy sense and work organs in next life as well. May I am full of vitality. May I have spiritual wealth and knowledge of Ishwar and vedic concepts again and again. May we be selfless for welfare of world in next lives again and again. May our deeds be noble so that we get human life and always get purity of mind and actions so that we can worship you and achieve salvation.

      • Rigveda 1.24.1-2:
        Question: Whom do we consider the most pure? Who is the most enlightened one in entire world. Who provides us mother and father again in the world after gifting us ultimate bliss or Mukti?
        Answer: The self-enlightening, eternal, ever-free Ishwar alone is most pure. He alone provides us mother and father again in the world after gifting us ultimate bliss or Mukti.

      • yes who was translator because some muslim fantic claims to use translations by the people i listed tto say these verses dont know talk about reincarnation which is why i wanted agniveer to help me to answer it as i dont know sanskrit and cant read hindi

      • Hi Jay Arya,

        These are translations by Agniveer when they used to have them up. now the individual person or people translated them, I don’t know. And I was told by an Agniveer member that an English translation of all the Vedas are suppose to be ready soon. Not sure when that will be but looking forward to it.

        Krishnarao

      • yes that is why i want agniveer to help me translate it and help me out on the view of the translators i mentioned

      • Hi Jay,

        Agreed, I do think Agniveer should put back up its post for those verses and the team should also mention the people who translated those verses. Not sure why Agniveer is being a little sneaky with this. It clearly does not look good.

      • where can i find the article which addresses this and please tell me if you agree with these translations if not why not?

  • so you dont accept Sripad Damodar Satvalekar,Pandit Khemkaran Trivedi,Pandit Ram Govind Trivedi,Swami Karpaatra Maharaj fully? from the ones i mentioned who would you say is best?

    • Depends on which mantra you are analyzing. We would rather suggest that one refrains from a person-based approach in such matters. Read, analyze and decide yourself. We recommend the translations that we found better and hence are distributing them.

  • @All
    The Internet has become a serious threat to the survival of Islam. Through internet, it has been easy to unmask the true face of Islam and its originator Muhammad. It has enabled critics to overcome the taboo of telling the truth about Islam and Muhammad… Islam stands on the projection of Muhammad as a perfect, sinless human being, but as his real vile character becomes exposed through the Internet, the foundation of Islam becomes increasing weak on its way to collapse. That’s why Islamic countries try to block many Websites that expose the true face Islam and its founder.”

  • @Agniveer
    Ali Sina is doing great service. You are too slow in comparison of Ali Sina. It is shame on us we being Hindu not doing any thing for our country / culture but Ali Sina being a Muslim was fighting against Islam religion propagated by Monster Mohammed.

    • @Pandit Ji

      I think you’re confused. Goal & approach of Ali Sina is quite different from Agniveer. Don’t mixed up things. Agniveer has to do ‘shastrarth’ & simultaneouly also spread vedic dharma. What Ali sina has to offer in that front?

      Critical analysis of Islam is not the only Agenda they got here. As you see, this website covers many topics which are plaguing Indian society for years now.

      • There are plenty of sites now on Islam. Agniveer should not get involved in that.
        Agniveer best to focus on dispelling myths about Hinduism, or refuting false statements about Hinduism that have been made and perpetuated by Muslims or Christians. The focus should be Hinduism, not Islam or even Christianity.

      • Exactly, Agniveer site should only be used to defend Hinduism, and state the full force of the scriptural facts.
        Let us not speak ill of others, as that is not part of our faith

      • Hmmm it is not about speaking ill. What Ali Sina and others are doing is not speaking ill. Discussion and debate and being politically incorrect is not necessarily about speaking ill of others.

        The point is that there are plenty of sites already discussing Islam. Agniveer is an expert on Hinduism and their greatest benefit to others is to dispel falsehoods and misconceptions in both Hindus and non-Hindus about Hinduism. They should counter misconceptions and falsehoods on Hinduism promoted by Muslims and Christians and others, and should comment on the actions of Muslims and Christians toward Hindus and other faiths now and historically, but leave the discussion of what Islam is or is not to others. It is not helpful for instance when Agniveer tries to show the Zakir guy is wrong about Islam. It is helpful when Agniveer shows how Zakir is wrong on Hinduism.

  • @
    (As per Islam) Hindu are world worst creatures. They are Idol worshiper . it is greatest sin to worship Idol in the eyes of Allah even than rape, looting, child-abusing. Allah will punish them severely/eternally. It is shame on the people they do not want to read truth written by Mushfique Sulatan but they are follower of Ali sina fiathfreem….. etc. Musfique site has very few visitors. Hinduism never read Veda also. They(Hindu) do whatever they will. They have no law book.) These views were put in the context of Holy Quran. It is matter of shame people are now talking poverty, unemployment, climate change, environmental pollution, terrorism, aids, etc.instead of core issues like Idol worship, formless worship, non- worship. Quran gives most focuse on these things. Do not through any verse to me from books of Hinduism because I am not devout believer in books other than Quran.

    • You are wrong there. Why do muslims worship the stone at Kaaba which contains the Shivling inside it? By the way , Prophet Mohammads family were worshippers of Shiva

    • Jack tell the truth. Hindus are not mentioned at all in the Quran or any Islamic religious scripture. Islam teaches Muslims that ALL those who disbelieve in Islam, Quran and Mohammed are the worst of creatures.

      Quran 98:6 – Verily,those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, Quran, and Mohammed) from among the People of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikun will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.

  • Namaste Agniveer Ji,

    Thanks for information and because of wrong knowledge of Zakir Naik may Hindu people are get converted in to Musalman and this information will be the answer for zakir naik. Thanks for sharing and giving correct information.I request all the Hindu people to read all the volumes of Vedas,Bhagvat Geeta and tell our other brother who can’t read this so that they will know it better.

    Jai Hindu Rashtra……

  • also can someone direct me to the so called forum page?? i searched the whole site even went to agniveer.org, but i didnt find any

  • can anyone elaborate how to read the translation on jamnagar website. i mean there’s this one line of slok, and then theres this full page of translation, also what is meant by padarthanvyabhasha
    and once the translation starts the same word is translated many times once in each paragraph. i guess there some procedure to read. can anyone elaborate.
    Also i know that it would be hard to translate all for agniveer, but shouldnt it like try to translate at least one slok a day??(i know it would take a lot of time that way but still it is better than nothin)

  • namaste agniveer, I would like to make sure that is the above given for ved is complete 100% . Or some mantras are some part are missing just to make sure. Because one of my muslim friend told me to look those mantra which Zakir naik has said in his video. But when i reach their to look in these Veda that number of mantra does not exist. I checked at least four reference he has given and i find in these ved books that number does not exit. According to your essay about veda i told him Zakir naik is making propogenda. And then he said to look these mantra. Even i know how many mantras are in rigveda and all. but soft copy i can not count easly. Now he has started beleaving that Zakir naik is wrong but before he is watching his video too much.
    one reference he told in rigveda 7-20-13 but that 7-20 end at 9 mantra then i also try other and i find all his reference is not in veda.

    • Namaste Vijay,

      If you would like Agniveer to get back to you, I would recommend to write to him from the contact page. I would also recommend to go to the debate forums that Agniveer has setup.

      I am not a expert about the Vedas, but I will say, the some verses naik uses don’t even exist in the Vedas. He is making stuff up. He also refers to black Yajur Veda and white one. Those are versions of the Vedas created during the muslim rule to corrupt Hindus. There is no such thing as black and white Yajur Vedas. Now I’m not saying I’m an expert, but from my study so far, I can tell naik is making stuff up. I wouldn’t look to a bias source, I would look at the people who actually practice the faith for proof.

      Dhanyavad,
      Krishnarao
