THE SOURCE OF TEACHINGS : THE VEDAS, PURANAS AND TANTRAS
While originally several different versions or rescensions of the Rig Veda were said to exist, only one remains. Its form has been structured in several different ways to guarantee its authenticity and proper preservation through time.  

The Rig Veda consists of the hymns to various aspects of the Divine as seen by various seers, called the "rishis". There are seven primary seers, identified not only in India but also in Persia and China with the seven stars of the Big Dipper. Their names are Atri, Kanwa, Vasishta, Vishwamitra, Jamadagni, Gotama and Bharadvaja, but they appear even in the hymns of these sages and may refer to an earlier group. They relate to the guiding lights of the seven chakras.  

The main family of the seers was called the Angirasas (a term related to the Greek Angelos and our English word angel). The seven seers are all Angirasas and their families or lineages are a diversification of this one original line. The foremost of the Angirasas was Brihaspati, identified with the planet Jupiter.
