If you look at Tagore’s translation of his own work – as an author you can argue that he is the most authentic translator of his own work – the English versions do not come close to the Bengali, so authenticity is not as simple as that…
I am a devotee and follower of Sri Aurobindo and the best translations of the Vedas or Upanishads or Kalidas, I have enjoyed those by him. And if one reads his translations, one sees how it looks to be translated beautifully. He brings out the spirit of Kalidas, of the Vedic seers. It’s not just the words. He makes it more beautiful. At the same time he feels that translating Sanskrit into English or any European language is an impossibility. But if the translator goes deep and identifies himself with the spirit of the text and tries to bring out something of that spirit, that is a fairly good translation.
One who understands the spirit [of the work] can do a fairly good translation. You cannot have a truly authentic or perfect translation, but something close to the spirit of the poet. That much can be managed. One cannot ever experience the beauty of the text when it is read in its original. Sanskrit is something beyond that.
Our project is not just to offer translation but through that to make them aware of the spirit of the Sanskrit and the readers should come back to the language.

The more the inner meaning of the Vedas is brought to light, the more will the effulgence and expansion of the true genius of India, which will lead of not only the good of India, not even only of mankind, but also to the entirety of Nature and environment, both animate and inanimate. This verily is our firm conviction and ardent hope.

ABOUT THE VEDIC EPIPHANY: VOLUME 3
Based on Sri Aurobindo's The Secret of the Veda , this book traces the background of the Veda, its long history, and its eternal relevance to man in his evolutionary ascent to divinity. It restates the ancient experience of the Vedic Seers in modern language. Volume Three emphasises the Vedic vision of a supreme epiphany of the Spirit behind the evolutionary labour of Nature and the consequent affirmation of the truth and reality of Nature. The author contends that this revelation of the ancient Rishis finds its complete fulfilment in Sri Aurobindo's vision of the divinisation of matter and a divine life on earth.

"The Veda is the oldest scripture known to the world, and has been held in awesome reverence in India for several millennia... Sri Aurobindo is a modern Vidyaranya, a veritable master of those who know with a more-than-Aristotelian- range and comprehensiveness of intellectual gifts and achievements. His approach to the Veda has a self-certifying authenticity about it...It is in the light of Sri Aurobindo's intuitive interpretation of the content of the Veda that Sri Reddy sets forth the Vedic Epiphany."

The Vedas are the ancient-most and profound esoteric mysteries. They are authentic and immutable, inspired and infallible, sempiternal and supernatural, apaurmseya. They are the origin and the basis of Indian ethos and culture, and through the centuries have exerted a lasting influence on the life and thought of India. They are expressions of the most illumined minds overflowing with supreme realisations of the Truth. They uphold a still earlier Tradition of great awakening in consciousness; they once again kindle the Vaishwa-nara Fire in the hearts of men...
The Vedas speak of the eternal truths inherent in Nature mostly revealed to them in their meditations. They embody the age long quest of the Soul for Immortality as well as its absolute fulfillment. The Rishis with their dynamic power of vision not only give the Creative Word but also carve out the Way leading to Immortality. By performing sacrifice, by Lupus and consecration, the Rishis realise the highest of all the lights, the Light Supreme, the all-pervading Knowledge, idamsrestham jyotisamm. They experience the whole of Creation as a single phenomenon, and see the-yonder sky-nay, the entire Universe as an extension of their inner being. Printed Pages: 572.
