    The meaning of the word ‘Veda’ is simply knowledge and not any language. Of course, language is the vehicle of the meaning and is needed.

    Veda is the person travelling in the vehicle and not the vehicle itself even though the vehicle is needed for travelling. The person travelling in a car can also travel in train or even in an aeroplane. The person is one and the same even though the vehicle changes. Hence, the Veda means the knowledge conveyed by any language.

    You can’t say that a person travelling in the car alone is the person. If this crucial point is understood, the inter-religious splits will disappear once for all. As long as one maintains the fanaticism of time and religion, he/she cannot realize the real and absolute unimaginable God existing beyond space and time.

    The four-dimensional space-time model applies only to the creation and not to the Creator, who is beyond this four-dimensional model. This is the essence of the knowledge of old Shankara and modern Einstein.
