The Veda-s are the oldest and most authoritative of Indian scriptures. Proclaimed to be the voice of the Lord that was heard by the Rsi-s of yore, they are very sacred for millions around the world who chant them with great reverence and attention to detail.

The dates of the Veda-s have been widely contested, and there are countless versions from different historians. But one aspect that has never been contested is how they are recited. Bound by a set of strict rules, Veda-s are chanted the same way now, as in the distant past.

Now Vedic chanting is becoming accessible to various sections of people. Great Vedic scholars like Vedakesari Sri T Krishnamacharya, (who himself had orthodox views in his earlier days) later changed his views, and actually started to teach Vedic chanting to different kinds of people. He used the authority from the sastras to prove that Vedic chanting could be done by anybody, as long as the rules of chanting were respected. In this context he quoted the Dharma sastra which says in times of crisis anyone, even if not a Brahmin, can do Vedic chanting.
