So wherever Vishwamitr-an enlightened sage-is, the Ved abide there!!!

The great sage Vishwamitr, we are told, was absorbed in meditative penance. Pleased with this, Brahma appeared and-said to him,
“From this day you are a sage (rishi).”

But not satisfied with this, the hermit went on with his intent contemplation. After a while Brahma, now accompanied by other gods, returned and said,
“From today you are a royal sage (rajarshi).”

But since Vishwamitr’s wish was yet unfulfilled, he continued with his incessant penance.Attended upon by gods, virtuous impulses that constitute thetreasure of divinity, Brahma came back again and told Vishwamitrthat from that day he was
supreme sage (maharshi).

Vishwamitr then said to the oldest of all gods,“No, I wish to be called a brahmarshi (Brahmin sage) who has conquered his senses.” Brahma protested that it could not be because he had not yet subdued his senses. So Vishwamitr resumed his penance, so rigorously this time that the smoke of the fire of penance began to rise from his head. Gods then entreated Brahma and the Lord of creation once more appeared before Vishwamitr and said,
“Now you are a brahmarshi.”

There upon Vishwamitr rejoined, “If I am a brahmarshi, let the Ved wed me.” His prayer was granted and the Ved was awakened in his heart. The unknown essence-all the mysterious knowledge and wisdom of the Ved-now became known.

This direct apprehension of truth rather than a book is Ved.
So wherever Vishwamitr –
an enlightened sage-
the Ved abide there.

True wisdom always abides
an enlightened sage
and this knowledge leads to
“Path of Self Realization.”
