ओ३म् अरूरुचदुषस पृश्निरग्रिय उक्षा मिमेति भुवनेषु वाजयु।

ओ३म् प्रथश्च यस्य सप्रथश्च नामानुष्टुभस्य हविषो हविर्यत्।
धातुर्द्युतानात्सवितुश्च विष्णो रथन्तरमा जभारा वसिष्ठः॥५९९
English:- Vasishtha, the most brilliant seeker and teacher, a man of versatile mind and boundless possibilities who was gifted with a radiative spirit and passion for enlightenment, received the pure, applied, beatific and life giving Word of the Veda, the first, original and eternal gift of the lord of omniscience into his yajna of cosmic creation, from Agni, sustainer of the light of knowledge, Vayu, vibrant sage with passion and strong will, Savita, i.e., Aditya, brilliant and inspiring like the sun, and Angiras, the sage inspiring as omnipresent Vishnu and breath of life. (Rigved 10-181-1)
(This Vasishtha, the brilliant disciple of the four sages, Agni, Vayu, Aditya and Angira, who then became the teacher of the Vedas, was Brahma. Swami Brahmamuni explains this interpretation of this mantra in his commentary on Rgveda and cites authoritative evidence from the Brahmana works. Swami Dayananda explains the cosmic process of creative evolution and Vedic revelation in his Introduction to his Commentary on the Vedas, Rgvedadi Bhashya Bhumika, saying on Vedic and ancient authority that the Vedas were first revealed to four sages: Rgveda to Agni, Yajurveda to Vayu, Samaveda to Aditya, and Atharva veda to Angira. Brahma, the brilliant disciple and later the inspired teacher, learnt the Veda from these four sages and passed on this knowledge to his disciples.)
