The Vedas are the recordings of sages to whom the mantras were revealed. They proclaim the transcendental Truth, which is not changed by time or place. They indicate the means to prosperity and security for the denizens of the three worlds. Veda is derived from the root "Vid", which means, "to know". The Veda teaches how to achieve purity of heart, getting rid of impurities.

The Vedas are the ancient scriptures or revelation (Shruti) of the Hindu teachings. They manifest the Divine Word in human speech. They reflect into human language the language of the Gods, the Divine powers that have created us and which rule over us.

The Vedas are the basic scriptures of the Hindus and Their highest authority in all matters pertaining to religion and philosophy. They are , moreover the earliest extant Indo-aryan literary monuments .The Hindus regard Them as Eternal, Without beginning,without Human Authorship. .The Primary meaning of the Word Veda is uncreated knowledge ,Super - sensuous Wisdom .The secondary reference is to the Words in which that Knowledge is embodied .And so the term Veda denotes not only the religious and philosophical wisdom of India,but also the books in which the earliest utterances of that wisdom are preserved.The Hindus look upon these books with the highest reverence.They are also known as the Word-Brahman , the Sabda-Brahma .
