The Vedic language came with the Aryans entering greater India. Vedic had lots its vitality as it marched for about 10, 000 years carrying the Rg Veda and the Yajurveda. Vedic had no script and no grammar but was a living language that we come to know through its literary reflection of the psychic characteristics of those times.>> When meeting the Sam’skrita in India many words were incorporated into the Sam’skrita from the Vedic.>>
<<The Vedic language of the Aryans who had already arrived in India had exerted a widespread influence on the spoken dialects of the indigenous population of India, such as the Kash, the Scythians, the Euchi, the South Kuśán, etc. Obviously, Sam’skrita, the common language of the indigenous people of the then India, was not outside the orbit of influence of the Vedic language; but that influence was not unilateral; that is, the Vedic language was also influenced by the Sam’skrita language.>>
<<During Shiva’s time (7000 years ago) the people were acquainted with the science of phonetics, that is, the intonations of the letters.>> << It was indeed the Tantrics, and not the Vedics, who invented script and acoustic science. So far as correctness of pronunciation is concerned, the Tantric mode is to be accepted, not the Vedic. Remember that each of the fifty letters of the Sanskrit akśaramálá (alphabet) constitutes one acoustic root of Tantra. It was for the purpose of spiritual practice that the Tantrics had discovered these roots. Here the Aryans deserve no credit at all.>>
<<The Aryans did not have their own script and thus were first introduced to the written alphabet after coming in contact with the Dravidians. The Dravidians of the Harappa and Mahenjodaro civilizations of India were already using a script, the Saendhavii script; after the Aryan migration into India, that script became transformed into the Bráhmii and Kharośt́hi scripts.>> << The Bráhmii and Kharośt́hi scripts were invented some time after Shiva. Thus we can generally say that the Vedas and Tantra exercised their mutual influence over each other, through the invention of script, only at the time of the Atharvaveda >>(Between 7000 to 5000 years ago)
<<The Vaedik people of Central Asia who came to India were illiterate, they had no script of their own. They learned how to write from the indigenous population of India, that is, from the Dravidians.>>
The Sam’skrta and the languages derived from Sam’skrta start with’ ka’ as the first consonant. This letter ka was represented in the Bráhmii script as a cross. The sages implied that the vertical line represents ‘Cosmic Consciousness’ or ‘purus’a’ and the horizontal line the manifested creation ‘prakrti’. These two aspects combined was symbolizing ‘káryabrahma’ meaning the created universe of Brahma/God. <<The biija (seed) mantra of káryabrahma is ‘ka’. So the cross became the first letter ‘ka’ in the Bráhmii script. Through the process of quick writing the Bráhmii ‘ka’ became transformed through distortion into today’s letter ka in subsequent scripts which derived from the Bráhmii script.
In Vedic ‘ka’ means ‘god’ and as well in the Mayan (influenced by Dravidian culture) pictural language there is a cross ‘k’uh’ and it also means ‘god’.
The svastika (Swastika) comes from ‘su’ (good) and ‘asti’( to be) meaning ‘good existence’ or ‘perfection’. The symbol is derived from the cross by adding arms that indicate the counterclockwise dynamic movement (in the flow of the kun’dalinii ) towards the goal of life which is ‘God, enlightenment, perfection.’
