Veda is the entire knowledge of nature
Veda is the entire knowledge of nature .The word ‘Veda’ is originated from the sanskrit verb – ‘ vid ‘ denoting ‘knowing’ . Thus, veda means knowledge. Veda is believeably the first creation in the history of knowledge and education. It was originated right from the begining of this creation, or when man started to breath, that’s why Veda interpretes ‘sosham’ denoting sanskrit-word – sah + aham = ‘ that is me ‘. God says – ” The point where you began and the point where you exist, as well as the point where you will end- everywhere I am dwelling.
India, the land of veda, and the origin of spiritualism has a huge store of religious and cultural knlowledges and all of them are originated or interpreted from Veda. Not only spiritual but material or scientific knowledge also was introduced in veda. And everybody knows the oldest alive knowledge in sanskrit was introduced by veda. Though vedic knowledge is so deep and so large that it is absolutely impossible to interprete and spread it in a short time and limited spave; Vedic India has attempted to bring it’s most important knowledge with an authentic interpretation and application system to let people know the way to leave in peace, harmony and successes.
Four Vedas –
The vedas are believably ‘unmade’ because it is so huge with the deep knowledge’s one can’t imagine to compile in the pages. that is why veda is called – ‘ apaurusheya ‘ i.e. man can’t make it. And when it was introduce there was no existence of paper or any writing material or activities, therefore, Veda was introduced and spread by hearing tradition. Sanskrit word – Shrotra = ears, therefore veda is called shrotra, to be hearable, and the people who practise Veda are called -‘ Shrotriya ‘ ( Brahman ).
