Do you know why the Vedas were orally propagated instead of writing them down?

    This method helped to achieve several objectives. This retained the correctness of pronunciation and preserve the purity of Sandhi or joining of words, swara or notes etc. the punctuation, breaks were also accurate.

    Since it was one to one propagation, the Guru shishya rapport was intact and there were no conflict of interest. Any effort to excel on the part of the student was appreciated by the teacher.

    There were no commercialization of these efforts. No copy rights and intellectual property rights issues. Who ever chanted readily acknowledged the Guru and also the Rishis! There was no need to destroy pirated CDs as of today! or Copy right infringement declarations. knowledge was freely spread and taught and learnt by students enthusiastically. These patasalas never charged capitation fee or NRI fee! There pupil learnt Vedas, Vedangas, Bhashya patas, Sastras, Sutras (Aphorisms), Epics, and puranas!

    Community development and inter personal relations and religious harmony and peace prevailed.
