It is said that Dakshinamurthy is Samaveda-Priya, does he like Samaveda that much? Why the Lord is referred to as so..?
To this question posed by a devotee in his Satsang, Sri Sri Ravishankar of Art of Living, giving explanation in his own words….
It must have been written by people who are associated with the Samaveda. If people from the Rig Vedawrite it, they would call it Rig vedapriya. People associated with the Yajur Veda will say that it is the greatest of all Vedas.
Lord Krishna has said ‘Vedanamsamavedosmi’ (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 10, Verse 22). It is because the Samaveda gives importance to devotion and music.
In the two hemispheres of the brain, the left is logic and the right is music. Since the Samaveda contains both logic and music, it is possible that these words came from there.
