Question # 171

According to the legends the Gods & Goddesses pleaded with Lord Brahma to create another ‘Veda’ which would be simpler for the common man to understand. Lord Brahma created the ‘Panchamaveda’, an essence of the four other vedas. It is believed he has taken ‘Pathya’(words) from the ‘Rigveda’, ‘Abhinaya’ (gesture) from ‘Samaveda’ & ‘Rasa’(sentiment & emotional element) from the ‘Atharvaveda’. After creating this he gave it to Sage Bharatha & asked him to popularize this on Earth. What did this lead to?
