The esoteric wisdom of the universe - Teachings of the Vedas
The esoteric wisdom of the Universe. The holy and eternal truth. This is the sruti, the anciant teachings what is the same with the Vedas. It was translated by the author of the Vedic hymns, the Risi.
What are the "Vedas"?
The Vedas are a large body of religious texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrit, the texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. Hindus consider the Vedas to be apauruṣeya, which means "not of a man, superhuman" and "impersonal, authorless". The Sanskrit verbal root of veda can be interpreted variously, but the purpose is finally one. Veda means knowledge.
The Transcendental knowledge
Vedic knowledge is called sabda-pramana. That means that this knowledge has to be received simply by aural reception. The Vedas instructs us that if we want to understand transcendental knowledge, we have to hear from the authority. Transcendental knowledge is knowledge from beyond this universe. Within this universe is material knowledge, and beyond this universe is transcendental knowledge. How can we get to the spiritual world, when we cannot even go to the end of the universe? In this case to acquire full knowledge is impossible.
There is another world. There is another nature that is beyond manifestation and non-manifestation. But how will you know that there is a world where the planets and inhabitants are eternal? All this knowledge is there, but how will you make experiments? It is not possible. Therefore you have to take the assistance of the Vedas. This is called Vedic knowledge.
