It is Swami’s wish that the Vedas be spread to every country, so that every human being, irrespective of religion, caste, nationality, etc., learns Vedas and chants them. Some people from Iran and Iraq have come to Puttaparthi, the day before yesterday. The devotees from Iran are still here. We are making efforts to teach Vedas to all people. The Vedas remove all types of sorrow. – Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, 9 Aug 2006 : Athi Rudra Maha Yajna: Prasanthi Nilayam.
