Why is the language in the Vedas so hard to understand?  Are we finding it difficult because we are in Kali Yuga?  Why was the word buddhi not used directly?  Why should we call it daughter?  Is not the ultimate purpose to educate man with this knowledge?  Then one should expect it to be made easier for understanding, right?

If you have time, can you write on this?
