The Vedas....

  1. The Rig Veda: contains hymns about their mythology.
  2. The Sama Veda: consists mainly of hymns about religious rituals.
  3. The Yajur Veda: contains instructions for religious rituals.
  4. The Atharva Veda: consists of spells against enemies, sorcerers, and diseases.

Each Veda was further divided into two sections:

  • The Samhita: mantras or hymns in praise of various deities
  • The Brahmanas: instructions for religious rituals.
