Vedic Predictions That Have Come True


The Vedas also make accurate predictions of incarnations or great personalities who will appear in the future. Some of the personalities predicted along with the text in which they are predicted  are given below:


*Buddha {Shrimad Bhagavatam 1.3.24),

*Chanakya (Shrimad Bhagavatam 12.1.11),

•Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (Mahabharata Ml 92.15, Shrimad Bhagavatam 11.5.32)

• Chandragupta and Emperor Ashoka (Shrimad Bhagavatam 12.1.12)

• Jesus and Mohammed (Bhavishya Purana, Atharva Veda, Kanda 20, Shukta 127, 1-3)

There are also vivid predictions about the degradations that will occur in Kali Yuga (the current age). Some of them are:

•Food will be sold publicly in market places (In the past, food was never sold; it was only given in charity. But nowadays every third shop sells food items).

• People will eat the flesh of their own fetus (In the past, the child would be revered and loved as a gift of God. But nowadays in China, Japan and several other countries, people consider the  aborted fetus a special delicacy and eat it with a bestial relish.)


*Man-woman relationship will be based only on sex and not on any other higher goal (Previously marriage would be consid­ered a sacred duty meant not for enjoyment but for increasing one's  service to God. But one can note the growing frequency of common law marriage without any actual ceremony or agree­ment and of 'living together'. Both of these are more promi­nent now in  the west than even in the '60s).

*Might will be right (In the past, a person was respected for his learning. But nowadays it is only wealth or brute force that com­mands respect).

*lavanyam kesha dharanam Men with long hair will be consid­ered beautiful.

*A brahmana will be known simply by the thread he wears (A real brahmana is one who actually possesses the qualities of a brahmana such as peacefulness, self-control, austerity etc)

If the Vedas are of mundane origin, then how is it possible for them to state profound truths which modern science has only re­cently started discovering? And how can they make accurate  pre­dictions about future happenings? The conclusion is unmistak­ably obvious: the Vedas are coming from a person who is all know­ing, who knows past, present and future. In other words, the  Vedas are the words of God.
