Hindu Scriptures

Ancient Holy Texts Revealed by God and Man

Hinduism proudly embraces an incredibly rich collection of scripture. The holiest and most revered are the Vedas and Agamas, two massive compendia of shruti (that which is “heard”), both revealed by God to illumined sages centuries and millennia ago. The array of works known as smriti (that which is “remembered”) is equally vast, the most prominent and widely celebrated of which are the Itihasas (epic dramas and history)--the Ramayana and Mahabharata--and the Puranas (mythology).
