The Bhagavadgita Wisdom

Essays on the Vedas

The Vedas are the main source of Hindu beliefs and practices. Their knowledge is considered the standard knowledge in Hinduism, which means any truth is valid in Hinduism only if it is affirmed by the Vedas. This is the tradition for the last 4000 years or even more. For Hindus the Vedas are inviolable, eternal, and revealed by God for the benefit of the mankind. They are considered sruti, the heard ones, or apauruseya, not man-made. Hindu philosophy and spirituality, including the knowledge of various yogas, are drawn from the Upanishads, which form the end part of the Vedas. They speak about Brahman and Atman and their role in creation. The following is a list of essays about the Vedas and related subjects which are currently available at Hinduwebsite. Jayaram V
