Bot Daniel, you are but a fool. The Richa 10.58.3 doesn’t mean that earth has four corners and is flat. You are as illiterate in Sanskrit as Griffith. Read below to know the truth naysayer. Cc @sankrant @Sanjay_Dixit @TVMohandasPai @GitaSKapoor
2/n The Richa reads as below:
यत्ते भूमिं चतुर्भृष्टिं मनो जगाम दूरकम्।
तत्त आ वर्तयामसीह क्षयाय जीवसे॥

translation:

Although thy spirit have gone far away to the four-quartered earth, we bring back that (spirit) of thine to dwell here, to live (long).
3/n The Sanskrit term used is “चतुर्भृष्टिं” which refers to “Four Directions” and not 4 corners as Griffith claims it to be & you idiotically refer that.

Now let me give you references of translation by indigenous Sanskrit scholars👇🏼
4/n Translation by Pandit Trivedi (refer scanned image below). Pandit Trivedi’s translation talks about four-directions.
5/n Translation by Shriram Sharma; also talks about four directions (scanned image below)
6/n Translation by Jayadev Sharma also talks of four directions.
7/n Now let me tell you, all those well-regarded scholars (to whom I have quoted) who translated Rigveda must be knowing that ‘चतुर्भृष्टि’ could mean “Four-cornered” but they didn’t transalated it so because of a very strong reason.
8/n And the reason is Satapatha Brahmana (the text which explains Rigveda). Actually, Satapatha Brahmana is a Brahmana Shakha of Rigveda which explains the rituals and terms used in Rigveda.
9/n And Satapatha Brahmana 6.1.2.29 clearly says that the “four corners” of Earth are nothing but “four quarters” which means “four directions“.

The very text clearly explains that Vedic seers considered four-directions as four-corners.
10/n Vedic seers neither considered Earth as flat nor they imagined any corner of Earth but they just called Four-directions as Four-corners.

Daniel even you aren’t even of how to read Rig Veda & don’t even know Sanskrit. Like this all your replies are as stupid as this.
N/n Daniel you are always caught in first tweet itself of n nos of them. And then when I respond your first one with few tweets you take another day to respond with more lies. Grow up buddy. Learn Sanskrit to discuss Vedas. Cc @mini_707070 @_NAN_DINI
