Question is:

What is Vedic Culture?

Why is it important ?

How will this help to make the lives better?


What is Vedic Culture?

Vedic culture is based on Vedic scriptures (sastras) called Vedas.

"Veda” comes from the word “Vid”.

“Vid” is Sanskrit word for “To Know".

“Veda” means “Knowledge” “Eternal Knowledge- No Beginning No Ending.

Sanskrit was the language of Vedic civilization.


What is Vedas?

To understand Vedas one should know about meaning of word “SRUTI”

  • “Sruti” in Sanskrit means 'that which is heard.'
  • Srutiscriptures include the primary scriptures of Hinduism known as the Vedas.
  • Thus the Vedas are the eternal truths that the Vedic seers, called Rishis, are said to have heard during their deep meditations. The Vedas are not considered the works of the human mind, but an expression of what has been realized through intuitive perception by Vedic rishis. As such, Vedas are considered of divine origin. The Vedic truths were orally inherited by the Rishis to their disciples over thousands of years. Finally , these were compiled by Sage Krishna DwepayanVyas, popularly known as VedVyas,  for the benefit of future generations.
what is vedas
What is Vedas?

Hindus believe that the Vedas were not written by anyone (including God), but are eternally existing (apaurusheya). While many historians regard the Vedas as some of the oldest surviving texts, they estimate them to have been written down between 1500 BCE and 500 BCE.

essence of vedas
Essence of Vedas

The Vedas consist of several kinds of texts, all of which date back to ancient times.

The core is formed by the Mantras which represent hymns, prayers, magic and ritual formulas, charms etc.

The hymns and prayers are addressed to a pantheon of gods and a few goddesses important members of which are Rudra, Varuna, Indra, Agni, etc.

The mantras are supplemented by texts regarding the sacrificial rituals in which these mantras are used as well as texts exploring the philosophical aspects of the ritual tradition, narratives etc.

when was vedas rediscovered
When was Vedas rediscovered?

The Vedas were compiled around the time of Krishna (c. 3500 B.C.), and even at that time were hardly understood.

Hence they are very ancient and only in recent times has their spiritual import, like that of the other mystery teachings of the ancient world, begun to be rediscovered or appreciated even in India.

The Vedic truths were orally inherited by the rishis to their disciples over thousands of years. Finally , these were compiled by Sage Krishna Dwepayan Vyas, popularly known as Ved Vyas,  for the benefit of future generations.

upanishads another branch of vedas
Upanishads-Another branchof Vedas
  • The Upanishads are a continuation of the Vedic philosophy, and were written between 800 and 400 B.C. They elaborate on how the soul (Atman) can be united with the ultimate truth (Brahman) through contemplation and mediation, as well as the doctrine of Karma-- the cumulative effects of a persons' actions.
  • The word Upanishad consists of three parts:
  • Upa (near),
  • Ni (down), and
  • Shad (sit).
  • 'sitting near a teacher and receiving the secret teachings.'
essence of upanishad
Essence of Upanishad
  • The Upanishads more clearly set forth the prime Vedic doctrines like Self-realization, yoga and meditation, karma and reincarnation, which were hidden or kept veiled under the symbols of the older mystery religion.
  • The Upanishads became prevalent some centuries before the time of Krishna and Buddha
  • Upanishad means Brahma-knowledge by which ignorance is loosened or destroyed.

ParamPujyaGurudev has translated 108Upanishads in simple language and compiled according to its nature in 3 parts as under:

  • Brahmavidhya
  • Gyan
  • Sadhana
  • He wrote additional Upanishad called “Pragyopanisad” well in advance before the reincarnation of god in the form of Pragyaavatarin 21st Century.

Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya



Hindu sages developed six different systems of philosophy, called Darshanas, at different periods of time.

They are religious philosophical systems because their foundation is in the Vedas. All the six systems are written in aphorisms (sutras).

The sutras, being very brief and terse, needed explanatory notes, which were written later by other scholars. For example, Shankaracharya, the famous scholar wrote explanatory commentaries on Vyasa’s work (known as Vedanta Darshan or Brahmasutra). These six systems of philosophy are:

6 darshans
6 Darshans
  • There are six Darshan Shastras called the six schools of philosophy. They are:
  • (1) Poorva Mimansa by Sage Jaimini,
  • (2) Nyay by Sage Gautam,
  • (3) Vaisheshik by Sage Kanad,
  • (4) Sankhya by Bhagwan Kapil,
  • (5) Yog by Sage Patanjali, and
  • (6) Uttar Mimansa (Brahm Sutra) by Bhagwan Ved Vyas.
  • All the six Darshan Shastras are in sutra form.

The Epics

The Mahabharata and Ramayana are the national epics of India.

The Mahabharata, attributed to the sage Vyasa, was written down from 540 to 300 B.C. The Mahabharata tells the legends of the Bharatas, a Vedic Aryan group.

The Ramayana, attributed to the poet Valmiki, was written down during the first century A.D., although it is based on oral traditions that go back six or seven centuries earlier. The Ramayana is a moving love story with moral and spiritual themes that has deep appeal in India to this day.

In addition, a key Hindu sacred text, the Bhagavad Gita, is embedded in Book Six of the Mahabharata.

old and new scriptures
Old and New Scriptures
  • First writing was found on stones, then on leaves but slowly paper was invented.
  • In olden days the paper was made out of the pulp of wood-a very lengthy process. All the litrature was hand written by Rishis and Sages with the help of their disciples was called “HASTAPRAT”,the ink was made out of vegetables and fruit juice and pens were the stem of the trees like bamboo-or feather of birds like peacock, called “KALAM”or “KITTO”.
  • Slowly the printers are invented and now we have computers to make our lives very easy.
gita vishwa kosh
  • Param Pujya Gurudev wrote the materials for “Gita Vishwa Kosh”in 18 volumes comprises of over 10,000 pages. Shradheye Dr. Pranav Pandya, head of All World Gayatri Pariwar, informed in his recent lecture that Shantikunj is trying to compile this huge gigantic work of Gurudev and it will take few years before it will get published. He mentioned that when it will come out people will find everything what they want to answer their any question.
