Shruti and Smriti 

Shruti (Ved) and Smriti are two categories of  texts in the eastern or non-Semitic religions.

Shruti’s literal meaning is heard, i.e. the voice of Par-Brahm (the supreme God) which had been heard by Bhagats (saints or Gurs) in ancient times and was heard by the disciples and spread through the world. Due to this divine source, they considered them the most important source of Vedas is.

Apart from these, other texts have been considered as memory – which means that human beings have memorabilia and intellectual texts which are considered to be human descriptions and interpretations of Shruti.

Shruti will always receives recognition when there is any dispute between Shruti and Smriti. There are four Vedas in Shruti: Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda and Atharvaveda. Apart from these, all the holy scriptures come under memory. Whatever is said in the memorials, creeds, texts, texts and essays, it has been said only by accepting the great recognition of Shruti. Such a notion is found in all ancient scriptures.

These texts show Shruti as ideal for her proof. Its imprint was so deep in ancient times that the word Vedas became a symbol of reverence and faith. Therefore, to give importance to some of the following scriptures, their composers added the word of the Vedas to their names. Probably this is the reason that the science of Dhanush running is called the Ayurveda of Dhanurveda and medicine.

The Mahabharata also has been told that Pancham Ved is so strong that its importance can be emphasized. For example, Manu’s Code is considered as Manusmriti. According to this, the provisions of society, family, business and religion are based on Manu’s thinking and memory. But these are not words (or rules) spoken by Parabrahm. So this is a memorial book.

Vedas are said to be Shruti due to:

1. These were revelations from Parbraham in ancient times when they were meditators, when they were meditators. That is, Shruti Puran Brahma is composed. The Vedas were not written before, they were reminded by Bhagats by listening to their disciples and in the same way the tradition went on.
