This is a brief description of what right conduct is. Of Christian Lassen, it was said as early as 1890 [Oldenberg 1890:27] that �the sagacity of philological thought is wanting in him�. The congregations of the faithful gather for worship in the mosques on Fridays. The Upanishads really form the essence of the Vedas.

In many cultures throughout the world that later developed the concept of a Male Deity, this idea of the blood bond between the female and the Mother Goddess was so powerful, that we find a strange but corresponding belief: that in order for human males to bond with their Deity they also have to shed blood.

The above quotation is sufficient warrant that, although with every caution, the subject was more than once approached, and is not a new-fangled theory or invention. They will interbreed amongst themselves... and amongst humans...and amongst animals... It forms a veil which hides the Supreme from the vision of the individual soul.

Peculiarly, it is not the message of the Vedas that transcends time, but the words themselves, even �the particular sounds and their precise verbal order in the corpus (including the variants)� (Lipner, 1994, p. 46).
