The word rahasya (secret) does not apper in Rig Veda. The corresponding word in Rig Veda is ninyam which occurs in several mantras. TVK commenting on the mantra (1.32.4) (CW, Volume 5) renders this word ninya occurring there as antarhitam (hidden inside), guptam (concealed), adrshtam (unseen). All these three epithets give us some idea of the word rahasya.

Note that only a few persons among many, who have advanced spiritual preparation can understand the secrets or adhyatmic meaning. The rishi-s have not hidden intentionally the deep meaning from any one.

Sri T.V . Kapali Sastry has pin pointed the secrets hidden in first 121 sukta-s of Rig Veda.
