Veda' means knowledge. The entire Vedic corpus is preserved by oral tradition, which renders it the name 'Sruti'. The Indian knowledge system has the Vedic corpus as its foundation. The 4 Vedas, 6 Vedangas, Puranas, Dharmasastras, Nyaya and Mimamsa are collectively known as 14 Vidyasthanas.
prof.Gauri Mahulikar, Academic Director of Chinmaya International Foundation, introduces the participants to the 14 Vidyasthanas, gives them a brief idea of the Vedic deities, expounds the Vedic suktas praising Agni, Indra, Varuna, Vishnu and rudra and explains the translations of these with various interpretations.
