SatyaVeda: All about the Veda

Veda Vismarana – Brahmahatya Patakam

My Veda Guru said that it is considered a brahmahatyA pAtakam to forget the Vedas before you teach it to another.

Therefore, at least once in a mAsa paksha (krishna paksha and sukla paksha), the entire Veda that you have learnt must be chanted! Her guru used to chant a section each day so that the entire Rg vEda was completed in each fortnight.

My cousin offered this explanation. Brahma is Knowledge. A person who forgets specialized knowledge before he teaches it to another has in a sense “killed or destroyed” the knowledge that belongs to humanity. It is mandatory that knowledge is passed on to the right candidate and not hoarded.

The practice of repetitive chanting is called avismaraNa.

I am trying to teach all I learn through the internet as soon as I get it.. so that I am not guilty of this crime. But I keep falling behind with writing, she teaches so fast. So at the right time, when she permits it I must take a student.
