Unity in Diversity: Rig Veda(10.129)" nAsadIya sUkta



Unity in Diversity: Rig Veda(10.129)" nAsadIya sUkta

Unity in Diversity in SanAtana is grounded in the Rig Veda, It may well have originated in the 
charming humility of the Nasadiya verse :Rig Veda(10.129)“[In the beginning] there was neither 
being nor non-being … [but] who really knows? … [for] the gods came afterwards.” This 
questioning attitude, might also have led to the invention of a god whose name was the 
interrogative pronoun, [ka.] For the creator once asked Indra, “Who am I?” Indra replied, “Just 
what you said: Who.” And this is how the creator got the name, Ka or Who.In all humility, and 
with due reverence to all the sages and scholars who have interpreted the famous 'nAsadIya 
sUkta',

I have attempted a compilation of some interpretations of the SUkta, adding my own thoughts to 
the discussions.It is intended to lay a basis for further meditation on it.All the seven verses will 
be taken up one by one.To gain consensus on translation, many available ones are given.
