Names

The ancient Indians recognized the world as experienced by sense organs to be composed of two fundamental principles: name and form.

Form refers to the seen objects and name refers to how humans describe what they see.

 

Having so analyzed the world, the Vedas then cultivate a sense of belonging and oneness with nature and the world.

A 3000 year old hymn proclaims thus

Eeshetva urjetvava
Vaayavah sthopaayavasthah
Devovah savita
Prarpayatu sreshta tamaya karmaNe

This can be roughly translated to:

For food thee, for strength thee!
Ye are winds, ye are approachers.
Let the god Savitr impel you to the most excellent offering.

–  Krishna Yajurveda, Taittiriya Samhita, 1.1
