Please take a look at this book. It reports many times pieces of the Rig Veda. For example on page 25.

May the three-seated (tri-vandhura) and mentally-governed (manasa-yukta) come – spreading over the five abodes (Rig Veda VII.69.2)

Or on page 95:

'In the wild ecstasy of divine immortality, I destroyed all the ninety-nine cities of Shambara; And utterly the hundredth abode, when helping the servant of the gods in the Atithgva lineage' (Rig Veda. IV.26.3)

I tried to find the original texts in the Rig Veda. But in those verses there is completely different text. And sometimes there is no reference at all.

I am expecially interested in this one:

According to the Vedas, there are Seven Chakras in each 'layer', of which consists of Three Worlds. But, there are 33 'Layers' of these Chakras, of which correspond to the Thirty Three Gods of the Vedic Philosophy (Rig Veda. II.6.9).

This one does not seem to be a citation. Anyway there is not such as II.6.9 - the last verse is 8.

You can check here: https://www.sacred-texts.com/hin/rigveda/index.htm

Can anyone help to find (Rig Veda. II.6.9) and to explain why on page 95 based on that verse(s) he states that there are ninety-nine chakras?

  • @Pikk You need to ask a separate question about the problem with the translation. In this post your main question was "Rig Veda - can't find the right text" which is now answered. Commented Apr 17, 2020 at 22:51

    Does this answer your question? Can anyone explain Rig Veda III.6.9 and how does it relate to chakras? Commented Apr 18, 2020 at 4:59

    @SwamiVishwananda Not a duplicate, see my comment above as to why OP asked a second question. This is an 'identification-request' question about a particular RV verse while the other is about the meaning of the verse. Commented Apr 19, 2020 at 0:44

This one does not seem to be a citation. Anyway there is not such as II.6.9 - the last verse is 8.

in III.6.9 there is mention of 33 Gods. With these, borne on one ear, Agni, approach us, or borne on many, for thy steeds are able. Bring, witb their Dames, the Gods, the Three and-Thirty, after thy Godlike nature, and be joyful. May be misprint?

  • Thanks, yes, it's probalby a misprint. But how can this be interpreted as 99 chakras?
