Introduction to Indian Literature and Vedas Rigveda

 The Vedas are the four main pillars of Hinduism and the Adi Granth. The word 'Veda' is derived from the original Sanskrit word 'Vid' which means 'to know' meaning knowledge. The Vedas are also called ‘Shruti’ as they have been passed down from one generation to another through oral speaking and listening.

There are different opinions about the entire period of Vedic literature. The origin of the Vedas is believed to be thousands of years ago. It was initially spread from the Shruti tradition, while in terms of writing it is divided into two main parts:

1. Pre-Vedic period (1500 to 1000 BC) and

Post-Vedic period (1000 to 800 BC)

Based on the manuscripts found so far, the Rig Veda is considered to be pre-Vedic. While the rest of the other Vedas, Samhitas, Brahmans, Aranyakas as well as Upanishads are considered to be post-Vedic period.

The Vedas are four

  • Rig Veda,
