The Vedas signify divine knowledge. In the Vedic traditions, knowledge is of two types viz: direct or indirect. Direct knowledge comes through the senses, mind, and objects, while indirect knowledge comes from within, which we call intuitive knowledge. Originally, the Vedic hymns were divinely inspired by Lord Brahma (the soul of the universe), who revealed them to the ‘Rishis’ (sages), in a higher state of consciousness, and hence known as ‘Shrutis’ (what was heard). Rishis then revealed it to their disciples, Gurus.
