Introduction to Hindu Scriptures and Classical Texts

Swami Vivekananda used to say: “‘Truth’ is of two kinds: (1) that which is perceivable by the five senses of human beings and is deducible therefrom by inference and (2) that which is perceivable by the subtle powers arising from Yoga.  The knowledge acquired by the first means is called science and that acquired by the second method is the Veda … The person in whom that power of intuition is manifested is called a Rishi and the infinite knowledge that he comprehends through that power is called the ‘Veda’. ”

In the Vedas, you find five stages in man’s search for Truth: pantheism, polytheism, monotheism, henotheism, and monism.  The Upanishads tell you that what God is can never be explained in words, it can only be experienced.
