The Vedas

There are four Vedas, the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda.The Vedas are the primary texts of Hinduism.They also had a vast influence on Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism.Traditionally the text of the Vedas was coeval with the universe.Scholars have determined that the Rig Veda, the oldest of the four Vedas, wascomposed about 1500 B.C., and codified about 600 B.C.It is unknown when it was finally committed to writing, but this probably was at some point after 300 B.C.

The Vedas contain hymns, incantations, and rituals from ancientIndia. Along with the Book of the Dead,the Enuma Elish,the I Ching,and the Avesta, they are amongthe most ancient religious texts still in existence.Besides their spiritual value, they also give a uniqueview of everyday life in India four thousand years ago.The Vedas are also the most ancient extensive texts inan Indo-European language, and as such are invaluablein the study of comparative linguistics.
