The Rig Veda’s Message of Heroism

The Four Vedas

The message of the Rig Veda is that man should go forward without fear to achieve his goals and win his victories. Here’s the finest exhortation from the Rig Veda:

प्रेता॒ जय॑ता नर॒ इन्द्रो॑ व॒: शर्म॑ यच्छतु ।
उ॒ग्रा व॑: सन्तु बा॒हवो॑ऽनाधृ॒ष्या यथास॑थ ॥ ~ Rig Veda 10-103-13

Translation: Advance, O heroes, win the day. May Indra be your sure defense.
                   Exceeding mighty be your arms, that none may wound or injure you.

During the Middle Ages, Hindus forgot this important lesson to march triumphantly and never yield that the Rig Veda, and the other three Vedas, and the Puranas and the Upanishads, have preached.
