Indian Scriptures

Shrikant Prasoon (Author)
Synopsis The Vedas are the eternal source of knowledge from which all the other Hindu Scriptures originated. When we say eternal books of knowledge, it carries a sense of oneness with the Supreme Lord. Scriptures are the holy books of a religion that are pious and revered. All the religions in the world have one scripture eachwhereas Hinduism has many Scriptures. Hindu scriptures are divided into Shruti and Smriti. The Shruti is the primary authority and the Smriti is the secondary. The Shruti literally means what is heard. The great rishis of yore heard the eternal truth which was later compiled by the great rishi Veda Vyasa in the four Vedas - Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda. Smritis on the other hand include Itihasas or epics, Puranas or chronicles, Agamas or the manuals of worship and Darshanas or the schools of philosophy. All these are the supreme books of human knowledge and form the foundation of Hindu religion.

About the author

Shrikant Prasoon

Prof. Shrikant Prasoon is a reader, teacher, thinker, poet and above all, a humanist. The more he reads and thinks, the more he writes on varied topics, but with one aim 'to show man the need of Nature and natural life'. He believes that all religions are integral and inseparable, living and developing parts of one basic religion called Humanism; and all the systems are an outcome of the greatest celestial system, which is devised and regulated by the Unseen and Unknown Creator. A retired Professor of English, Prof. Prasoon writes in Hindi and also in Samskrit with equal ease. His recent books are Knowing Buddha, Knowing Guru Nanak, Indian Scriptures, Panch Mahabhuta Tatwa and Sharira, Chanakya, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Absorbing Buddha, On Management, Knowing Kabir, Hinduism: Clarified and Simplified, Indian Saints and Sages, Rishis and Rishikas and 16 Hindu Samskars.
