In determining the etymological origin of the term Veda, we must go back in time. Specifically, we have to go to Latin because there we discover where the word comes from: vetare, a verb that can be translated as “forbid by law”.

Veda is the action and effect of sealing (prohibiting something by law or mandate). The term is also used to denote the period of time when hunting and fishing are prohibited (prohibited). In this sense, the ban is usually applied to prevent the depredation of natural resources and allow the reproduction (and, therefore, the subsistence) of animals. For example: “Tomorrow the ban on kingfish in Lake San Jorge begins”, “A Chinese ship has been accused of violating the ban in US territorial waters” , “Fox hunting is prohibited in these lands . ”

Nor can we forget the existence of the non-profit organization VEDA, Volunteers in Defense of Animals, which has been operating in Bolivia since the 1990s. imminence of elections. The usual thing is that the electoral ban starts a few days before the vote and ends a few hours later, with the aim of leaving the necessary time for citizens to reflect and decide their vote without influence. In the case of Spain, the electoral ban establishes, for example, that the campaign will have a maximum duration of fifteen days and that it must end to allow for a day of reflection, during which no media will send any related information. political parties and their respective programs. The electoral ban also tries to minimize the risk of incidents between militants from different political parties during elections. It is forbidden to go to the polling center with party banners or make public demonstrations in favor of candidates. Another regulation of electoral prohibition is the prohibition of the sale of alcoholic beverages, to avoid that the voter is tempted by alcohol and, in this way, ends up not going to vote because he is not in a position to vote. Finally, each of the Sanskrit holy books that form the basis of Hinduism’s religious tradition is called a veda. Specifically, these are the “layur-veda”, the “rig-veda”, the “sama-veda” and the “atharva-veda” which correspond respectively to the use of sacrifice, poetic recitation, chants and rituals. In this sense, we cannot ignore the existence of a religion known as Vedism, which predates Hinduism and is based on these four documents. Around the 6th century BC, it seems that was when the end of the one that was very rigid in certain respects came. Thus, for example, it is known that the maxim to be followed is that the aforementioned prohibitions can only be transmitted orally. To a certain extent, the basic principle was that whoever wrote them would suffer a terrible curse.
