6. Introduction to Vedic Śāstras - Vedic Scriptures (Śāstra Prakaranam). This is the fifth session of Vedic learning (Introduciton Session). In this session, we tried to provide a bird eye view of Core Hindu Shastras (Scriptures). The Key concepts which we covered are - Veda, Vedānga, Śad Darshana, Smriti, Āgama, Tantra, Purāna, Itihāsa (Rāmāyana, Mahābhārata), Bhagavad Gīta and some associated topics. As the Concepts are very complex and vast in nature, we tried to address the key concepts and in a over simplified way.
