Notes: Vedic Literature Part – I 136 upvotes 35 comments The Vedic literature was composed in

The Vedic literature was composed in Sanskrit. To begin with the Vedas were

recited and not written. They were taught by oral method. Hence they were called

as Sruti (heard) and Smriti (memorized). But later on they were reduced to writing

after the invention of scripts.

The major literary and religious works of Vedic Period are the four Vedas and the

Upanishads. These works still continue to hold immense authority in the sphere of

spiritual and religious literature. The idea and principles of Karma (action) and

Moksha (spiritual liberation) are widely accepted by the people belonging to Hindu

faith.

1. The Rig Veda

2. The Sama Veda

3. The Yajur Veda and
