It is the Supreme Lord Krishna who is the foundation and source of all creation comprised of moving and non-moving things hence His relationship as father, mother, grandsire and patriarch is natural. The word dhata meaning bequeather or dispenser denotes the original progenitor the Supreme Lord who is the real cause of all births distinct from the seminal birth from father and mother. He is vedyam whatever is perceptible by the Vedas being worthy to be known and He is the Holy sanctifier. He is the indicator known by His personal sound vibration OM which is the root of the Vedas and He Himself is the sacred Vedas comprised of the Rig, Sama and the Yajur Vedas from where was extracted the Atharva Veda.
