Do You Know about Veadas ?
It is true that there are other scriptures and spiritual texts found in different parts of the world may also be valid, but the qualities which set the vedas apart from all other scriptures are their wonderful breadth and depth of knowledge and their logical philosophical construction. Due to these unique qualities they are satisfying and enlightening not only to the faithful reader but also to the philosophically inclined and the aspiring transcendentalists; and, fortunately, they are still available in the original sanskrit texts, to be studied as they are or directly translated from the original form. It was Vyasadeva, the sage, who was the original compiler of all vedic literature.
The writings coming after the Upanishads and the four Vedas are known as smrti (“that which is remembered,” as opposed to the vedic sruti). They include the Itihasas (epics) and the Puranas (histories). The Itihasas are the Mahabharata (110,000 verses) and the Ramayana (50,000+). There are eighteen main Puranas (including the srimad-bhagavatam), many Upapuranas (lesser puranas), and numerous regional Puranas, some more authoritative than others.
