Hindu Scriptures And Holy Books
Hindu sacred texts and heavenly books are separated chiefly in two classes viz Sruti and Smriti. Sruti actually signifies "that what is uncovered" and Smriti signifies "that what is recollected." Hence, Sruti is the thing that old Hindu holy people heard amid profound contemplation. Sruti has a place with Vedic period while Smriti has a place with post-Vedic period. Srutis are more philosophical and formal in nature while Smritis are concerned more with moral and common law.
Sruti comprises of four Vedas, Upanishadas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas, and Bhagvadgita while Smriti comprises of Manu Smriti, 18 Puranans, Ramayana, and Mahabharata and other Hindu blessed books. Smriti writings are viewed as less definitive than Sruti.
We are attempting to list here as many Hindu sacred texts and books as could be allowed. On the off chance that you know any Hindu books other than these, please don't hesitate to illuminate us about those sacred texts.
