Where can I get authentic English translation of the Vedas

Question: Where can I get authentic English translation of the Vedas not done by a westerner? Has any Indian Guru done it?
- Bharath Krishna, Seattle


Answer: If your purpose is to study Vedas, we would strictly recommend you to learn it from a competent guru, who belongs to an authentic parampara. Generally Vedas are not learnt by reading them though, because it requires a guru to guide you to the true meaning. In USA, you can contact Arsha Vidya Gurukulam to find a right place near you.

Translation to Vedas by Agniveer is quite popular. Apart from it, there is NO reliable English translation available currently. They also have Hindi translation at their Arya Samaj Jamnagar website.
