: The Sanskrit verbal root of veda can be interpreted variously, but the purport is finally one. Veda means knowledge. Any knowledge you accept is veda, for the teachings of the Vedas are the original knowledge. In the conditioned state, our knowledge is subjected to many deficiencies. The difference between a conditioned soul and a liberated soul is that the conditioned soul has four kinds of defects-
1- Tendency to commit mistakes
2- Tendency to be illusioned
3- Tendency to cheat others
4- Imperfect senses
Vedas are directly coming from the Supreme Lord Vishnu / Krishna
PROOF – ‘tene brahma hrdaye adi kavaye’ – Vedas were first imparted to Lord Brahma by the medium of heart by Krishna.
