Vedas - Most ancient Hindu scriptures, composed of hymns to various deities. There are four collections of theses hymns, known as Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda and Atharveda.

"Veda" means knowledge or wisdom. The Vedas are the sacred and most ancient scriptures of the Hindus. Orthodox Hindus believe that the Vedas are the result of direct divine revelation; they are considered the final authority in all spiritual matters. There are four Vedas: the Rik, Yajur, Sama, and Atharva. Each Veda consists of a ritual or "work" portion, and the philosophical or "knowledge" portion, known as the Upanishads. (vedanta)

The most sacred Hindu scriptures, regarded as revealed by God. They contain hymns in praise of God, sacrificial prayer and sacrificial ceremonies and the mystic teachings of the ancient sages. The four Vedas are the Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda and Atharvaveda. (senatan)

The Vedas (also referred to as Vedam) are part of the Hindu Shruti; these religious scriptures form part of the core of the Brahminical and Vedic traditions within Hinduism and are the inspirational, metaphysical and mythological foundation for later Vedanta, Yoga, Tantra and even Bhakti forms of Hinduism. In Sanskrit the word means Knowledge or Truth, and is cognate with the word "wisdom" in English. (wikipedia)
