Veda's and its Misconceptions

Veda is not a Myth

There seem to be different opinions about Vedas .Many articles are there on the internet without any scriptural evidence.They didn't understand the essence of the Scripture.So for better understanding
I am sharing overview of some Vedic texts.
• Vedic literature includes several texts:
• Veda Mantra-Samhitas — Rig, Yajur, Sama, Atharva
• Brahmans associated with each Mantra Samhita
• Aranyaks Upanishads
• Upavedas (Each Mantra Samhita has an associated Upaveda)

In reality, only the Mantra-Samhitas are the divine Vedas. Other texts like Brahmans, Aranyaks, Upanishads, Upavedas, six Dar-shan,  etc are texts written by sages. These texts are the human creation and not divine. So, these texts should be accepted only to the extent that they comply with Vedas (Mantra-Samhitas) and understood in the context of these.

Vedic mantras are like ocean of knowledge more you apply  it, more you feel liberated, more you get that feeling of bliss and Joy.

Vedas contain only rituals and worship of gods.Do  we need other texts for philosophy and other practical applications as well?

All great works of our culture are attributed to Vedas by their authors.
  •   Vedas are the ultimate source of knowledge
  •  Vedas are a source of all philosophical texts like Upani-shads and Geeta.
  •  While other texts are useful to understand the Vedas and truth, there is nothing in    them which cannot be found in Vedas.
  • Vedas are the ultimate benchmarks. Other texts are stairs to reach up to that. But  we should be careful that no stair leads us away from the Vedas.
  •  Vedas believe in One and Only One Ishwar who pervades everywhere.
  •  Vedas refer to knowledge which is timeless.
