Rigveda Mantras

The Rigveda, one of the oldest known scriptures in the world, is a collection of ancient hymns (suktas/poems) composed in Sanskrit. People believe it's more than 3,000 years old! These poems are about gods, prayers, and rituals from ancient India. 


Here are 5 Rigveda Mantras presented by myNachiketa that encourage unity, peace, harmonious living, and faith in God. Essential values for children to learn and understand.
