In November 2003 the United Nations Educational Scientific Cultural Organization known as UNESCO made a declaration to the world on the value of the Vedic oral tradition.
Veda is Ultimate Source of Knowledge: UNESCO
The tradition of Vedic chanting of India has been declared a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by Unesco for being "the ultimate source of knowledge and one of the world's oldest surviving cultural traditions.
In a meeting held between director-general Koichiro Matsuura and president Juan Goytisolo at Unesco headquarters in Paris on November 8, Unesco declared, "Although Vedic texts were recorded in writing 15 centuries ago, their principal means of transmission remains oral. The outstanding value lies not only in the rich content of its oral literature but also in the unique and ingenious techniques employed by the Brahmin priests in preserving the texts intact over three and half millennia. The complex recitation technique, requiring rigorous training from childhood, is based on a specific pronunciation of each letter and specific speech combinations to ensure that the sound of each word remains unchanged.
Mr Matsuura added: "The Vedic heritage comprise a multitude of text and interpretations collected in four Vedas. The Rig Veda is an anthology of sacred hymns; musical arrang of hymns from the Rig Veda and other sources are found in the Sama Veda; the Yajur Veda abounds in prayers and sacrificial formulas used by priests; and the Atharva Veda, attributed to the legendary sage, Atharvan, includes hymns, charms and spells. The Veda also provide an extraordinary historical panorama of Hinduism and offer insight into the early development of several fundamental artistic and scientific notions, such as the concept of zero. Although the Vedas continue to play an important role in contemporary Indian life, this ancient oral tradition now faces many difficulties owing to current economic conditions and modernisation. Experts claims that the four noted schools of Vedic recitation may be in imminent danger of disappearing."
