RIG VED

Rig Ved, derived from the root word 'rik' meaning 'to praise‘. It includes 1,028 suktas (hymns), comprising 10,528 Sanskrit verses, and over 150,000 words. The Rig Vedic hymns of prayer and worship are addressed to Vedic deities, such as Indra (250 hymns), Agni (200 hymns), Soma (100 hymns), and numerous hymns addressed to Surya. Most doctrines of Hinduism have been, in one way or another, derived from the Rig Veda. One of the most profound and significant doctrines of the Rig Veda is, 'Truth is one, the wise call It by various names.' The Rig Vedic hymns possess mystic potency and richness. These hymns reflect a devotee's relationship to the deities as a friend, as a child to his parents, as a servant to his master, or as a lover to his beloved.

VEDAS

Vedas:

Srutiscriptures include the primary scriptures of Hinduism known as the Vedas. The Vedas teach the highest truths ever known to man, and form the supreme authority of Hinduism. The word Veda is derived from the root word 'Vid,' meaning 'to know.'

Srutiin Sanskrit means 'that which is heard.' 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.

The Vedas are the primary texts of the spiritual and religious records of the ancient culture and teachings of India. Their teachings are based upon recognition of the sacred nature of all life and self-realization as the true goal of human life. Hindus call the Vedas by several names, such as apaurusheya (meaning 'not authored by purusha, or human being'), anadi ('without beginning in terms of time').

As a culture and way of life, the Vedas represent a tradition that accepts all valid approaches to truth and embodies the principles of universality and diversity. The Vedas prescribe rituals and meditations far attaining harmony in life. The rituals are intended to keep our daily actions in harmony with the Divine Will, and meditations are prescribed for realizing our real self. The ritualistic parts of the Vedas are called the Karma Khanda and the meditation portion of the Vedas is called the GyanKhanda

puranas
Puranas

The Puranas form the largest body of Smriti literature. They were developed, in a question and answer form, to explain the subtle teachings of the Vedas through stories and legends of the ancient kings, heroes, sages, and divine personalities. The Puranas are second only to the epics as popular instruments of religious teachings. There are eighteen major Puranas: six of these are devoted to Lord Vishnu, six to Lord  Brahma, and the remaining six to Lord Shiva. Their author is believed to be Sage Vyasa, who also wrote the Mahabharata. Of all the Puranas, the most popular Purana is the Bhagavata Purana, which is devoted to Lord Vishnu. The Bhagavata Purana includes 15,000 stanzas arranged in twelve chapters. A major portion of this popular scripture is a dialogue between Sage Suka (son of Sage Vyasa) and King Parikshit. The Bhagavata Purana includes stories of all the incarnations of Lord Vishnu, with the story of Lord Krishna described in great detail. This scripture teaches the different ways of offering devotion to God, such as listening to stories of God described in scriptures, meditating, singing devotional songs, adoring pictures and images of God, and performing all work in the world in the spirit of service for the Lord.

upanishads

UPANISHADS

Upanishads:

Upanishads are the divine revelations received by ancient saints and seers. They represent the essence of the Vedas, the greatest truths ever known to mankind.

Upanishads are humanity's most profound philosophical inquiry and the first perceptions of the unity of all, the oneness of man and God. The basic teaching of the Upanishads is that the essence of all beings - from a blade of grass to the perfect human being - and all things is the Divine Spirit, called Brahman.

The true nature of an individual is this Divine Spirit. There is only one being, one reality, and in the words of the Upanishads, 'Tattvamasi,' meaning 'That thou art.'

The word Upanishad consists of three parts:

Upa (near), (Without any doubt)

Ni (down), and (Complete or Special)

Shad (sit). (Knowledge)

Thus Upanishad means 'sitting near a teacher and receiving the secret teachings.' or Complete Knowledge without any question or doubt. Free from theology and dogma, the Upanishads remain the primary source of inspiration and guidance for millions of Hindus and non-Hindus alike. They have influenced many Western thinkers, including Von Goethe, Arthur Schopenhauer, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

There are more total 220 Upansihads out there.

Note:

ParamPujya Gurudev 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 Pragyaavatar in 21st Century.

The Upanishads are the concluding portions of the Vedas, and the teachings based on them are called Vedanta. The Upanishads focus on philosophical questions such as the purpose of life.

darshans
DARSHANS

There are six DarshanShastras called the six schools of philosophy. They are:

(1) PoorvaMimansa by Sage Jaimini,

(2) Nyay by Sage Gautam,

(3) Vaisheshik by Sage Kanad,

(4) Sankhya by BhagwanKapil,

(5) Yog by Sage Patanjali, and

(6) Uttar Mimansa (Brahm Sutra) by BhagwanVedVyas.

All the six DarshanShastras are in sutra form. Significance of the DarshanShastras and their period.

The Vedic literature is so extensive that it is hard even for a Vedic genius to comprehend and remember the theme of all of them. So Sage Jaimini, who was the pupil of VedVyas, wrote the PoorvMimansa Sutras to facilitate the correct understanding of the Vedas.

Nyay and Vaisheshik Sutras describe the logical steps of how to determine the rights and the wrongs in terms of finding the absolute good for a person.

Sankhya Sutras explain the extent of mayiccreation and the Divinity beyond that. It tells that the entire mayic creation is worth discarding and only the Divinity is to be attained because that is the only source of Bliss.

Yog Sutras then explain the practical process of heart purification which may qualify a person to experience the absolute Divine.

Then the Brahm Sutra (Uttar Mimansa) reveals this secret that God is absolute Divinity and absolute Bliss, and He is Gracious.

So, yearn fully remember Him and with His Grace experience His absolute Blissfulness forever. This is the general outline of all the six DarshanShastras.

ParamPujya Gurudev translated all 6 Darshans.

shrimad bhagvad gita
Shrimad Bhagvad Gita:

The BhagavadGītā (Sanskrit: भगवद्गीता - Song of God), also more simply known as Gita, is a 700-verse Hindu scripture that is part of the ancient Hindu epic, the Mahabharata, but is frequently treated as a freestanding text, and in particular, as an Upanishad in its own right, one of the several books that comprise the more general Vedic tradition. It is revealed scripture in the views of Hindus, the scripture for Hindus represents the words and message of god, the book is considered among the most important texts in the history of literature and philosophy. The teacher of the BhagavadGita is Lord Krishna, who is revered by Hindus as a manifestation of God (Parabrahman) Himself, and is referred to within as Bhagavan, the Divine One.[2]

The context of the Gita is a conversation between Lord Krishna and the Pandava prince Arjuna taking place in the middle of the battlefield before the start of the Kurukshetra War with armies on both sides ready to battle. Responding to Arjuna's confusion and moral dilemma about fighting his own cousins who command a tyranny imposed on a disputed empire, Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna his duties as a warrior and prince, and elaborates on different Yogic and Vedantic philosophies, and explains different ways in which the soul can reach the supreme being with examples and analogies. This has led to the Gita often being described as a concise guide to Hindu theology and also as a practical, self-contained guide to life. During the discourse, Lord Krishna reveals His identity as the Supreme Being Himself (SvayamBhagavan), blessing Arjuna with an awe-inspiring vision of His divine universal form.

The BhagavadGita is also called Gītopaniṣad, implying its having the status of an Upanishad, i.e. a Vedantic scripture. Since the Gita is drawn from the Mahabharata, it is classified as a Smṛiti text. However, those branches of Hinduism that give it the status of an Upanishad also consider it a śruti or "revealed" text. As it is taken to represent a summary of the Upanishadic teachings, it is also called "the Upanishad of the Upanishads". Another title is mokṣaśāstra, or "Scripture of Liberation".

ParamPujya Gurudev wrote the materials for “GitaVishwaKosh” in 18 volumes comprises of over 10,000 pages. Shradheye Dr. PranavPandya, 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.

It has been highly praised by not only prominent Indians such as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi but also Aldous Huxley, Albert Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Carl Jung, Heinrich Himmler and Herman Hesse.

ramayana
Ramayana

Valmiki Ramayan:

The Ramayana (Sanskrit: रामायण, Rāmāyaṇa,) is an ancient Sanskrit epic. It is ascribed to the Hindu sage Valmiki and forms an important part of the Hindu canon (smṛti), considered to be itihāsa. The Ramayana is one of the two great epics of India, the other being the Mahabharata.[2] It depicts the duties of relationships, portraying ideal characters like the ideal father, ideal servant, the ideal brother, the ideal wife and the ideal king.

The name Ramayanais a tatpurusha compound of Rāma and ayana ("going, advancing"), translating to "Rama's Journey". The Ramayana consists of 24,000 verses in seven books (kāṇḍas) and 500 cantos (sargas), and tells the story of Rama (an Avatar of the Hindu preserver-God Vishnu), whose wife Sita is abducted by the demon king of Lanka, Ravana. Thematically, the Ramayana explores human values and the concept of dharma. Verses in the Ramayana are written in a 32-syllable meter called anustubh. The Ramayana was an important influence on later Sanskrit poetry and Indian life and culture. Like the Mahābhārata, the Ramayana is not just a story: it presents the teachings of ancient Hindu sages in narrative allegory, interspersing philosophical and devotional elements. The characters Rama, Sita, Lakshmana, Bharata, Hanuman and Ravana are all fundamental to the cultural consciousness of India.

There are other versions of the Ramayana, notably Buddhist (Dasaratha Jataka No. 461) and Jain in India, and also Indonesian, Philippine, Thai, Lao, Burmese and Malay versions of the tale.

mahabharata
MAHABHARATA

Mahabharata (Sanskrit: “Great Epic of the Bharata Dynasty”) one of the two Sanskrit great epic poems of ancient India (the other being the Ramayana).

The Mahabharata is an important source of information on the development of Hinduism between 400 bce and 200 bce and is regarded by Hindus as both a text about dharma (Hindu moral law) and a history (itihasa, literally “that’s what happened”).

Appearing in its present form about 400 bce, the Mahabharata consists of a mass of mythological and didactic material arranged around a central heroic narrative that tells of the struggle for sovereignty between two groups of cousins, the Kauravas (sons of Dhritarashtra, the descendant of Kuru) and the Pandavas (sons of Pandu).

The poem is made up of almost 100,000 couplets (Verses)—about seven times the length of the Iliad and the Odyssey combined—divided into 18 parvans, or sections, plus a supplement titled Harivamsha (“Genealogy of the God Hari”; i.e., of Vishnu).

Yug RishiVedVyas had written and translated Mahabharata.

It discloses the continuous war between 'evil' and 'goodness', at the end after a very long battle the goodness shall win, with the blessing of God Almighty, and after a lot of sacrifices had been done. The MAHABHARATA contains moral and philosophical teachings adopted by Hindus.
