WHAT ARE VEDAS ?

upanishad1vyasa deva

Veda means Body of knowledge, and there are two kinds of knowledge, one mundane and another transcendental.
This Vedic knowledge was stated in the Atharva-veda. Later on Vyasadeva developed into four Vedas, 108 Upanisads, 18 Puranas, and Vedanta-sutras.
Then Vyasa deva made a fifth Veda, known as Mahabharata, or the great history of India.
The original Bharata and modern India are not the same.
The original Bharata means the whole planet earth. Having been gradually divided, the modern India is only a fractional part of the original Bharata. So the knowledge is distributed in so many departments of Vedic knowledge.
