    We know that Vedas are the “TRUE ESSENCE OF LIFE”. Ancient India has produced many precious takeaways for the upcoming generations. From among them, the most important and sacred ones have been the Vedas. The Vedas have highlighted the major issues and concerns of life in a beautiful manner.

    What are the major lessons of life to learn from the Vedas ??

    :D Different people learn different things from Vedas. I learn about Aryan history and Quantum Mechanics from them.

    Truthfully, I have learned nothing from them that I haven't learned from other people. But this is probably because I have never gotten past the first few pages. I find them very hard to follow. The Upanishads and Epics are much more influential to me.

    Brahman Alone is Real. We are that eternal Brahman experiencing through limiting forms. This entire universe is just our play/drama, our creative emanation to experience finiteness.

    I agree with you on that. When I explain my takeaway from the Vedas it is really the modern masters bringing the Vedas to me in a form digestible to my time and culture.

    There is a lot in Vedas (main body), Brahmanas, Aranyakas, but it has to be ferretted out. It is not in one place. However, you find excellent wisdom in Upanishads. Upanishad too are a part of Vedas.
