Vedas dating

• There are more than 2,500 Archaeological sites, two-thirds of which are along the recently discovered dried up Sarasvati River bed. Om is mentioned in the Mundaka and Katha Upanisads as well as the Bhagavad Gita.These sites show a cultural continuity with the Vedic literature from the early Harrapan civilization up to the present day India.• The significance of establishing this date for the drying up of the Sarasvati River is, that it pushes the date for the composition of the Rig Veda back to approximately 3,000 B. E., as enunciated by the Vedic tradition itself.• The late dating of the Vedic literatures by indologists is based on speculated dates of 1,500 B. This piece of pottery from the lowest level of Harappan excavations with pre-harappan writing is deciphered as ila vartate vara, referring to the sacred land bounded by the Sarasvati River, described in the Rig Veda.A vast number of statements and materials presented in the ancient Vedic literatures can be shown to agree with modern scientific findings and they also reveal a highly developed scientific content in these literatures.The great cultural wealth of this knowledge is highly relevant in the modern world.Max Muller, perhaps the most well known early sanskritist and indologist, although later in life he glorified the Vedas, initially wrote that the "Vedas were worse than savage" and "India must be conquered again by education...it's religion is doomed"Innumerable archaeological findings and their analysis have recently brought the Aryan Invasion Theory into serious question.

The Aryan Invasion Theory raises an interesting dilemna called Frawleys Paradox: On the one hand we have the vast Vedic Literature without any archaeological finds associated with them and on the other hand, we have 2,500 archaeological sites from the Indus-Sarasvata civilization without any literature associated with them.• There is no evidence of an Aryan homeland outside of India mentioned anywhere in the Vedas. for the Rig Veda, both now disproved by scientific evidence.

It is thought, though, that the earliest Vegas may date back to roughly 1700 BCE—the late Bronze Age.

Tradition has it that humans did not compose the revered compositions of the Vedas, but that God taught the Vedic hymns to the sages, who then handed them down through generations by word of mouth.
