Question: In ISKCON there is a constant reference to the Vedas. What is this actually?
Answer: ‘Veda’ means knowledge.
The Vedas are the original knowledge that is revealed at the time of the universe’s creation.
Life in the material world is a combination of matter and spirit.
The Vedic literature is a vast body of knowledge divided into four main treatises that covers diverse aspects – from science, mathematics, architecture, astronomy, military science, politics, architecture, medicine and even cuisine.
Just as a device or appliance comes with an instruction manual, the Vedas educate one about the purpose and proper use of this material world to avoid being further implicated in its laws.
The ultimate purpose of the Vedas is to lead one to liberation from the material nature.
