Why are the Vedas important to Hindus?

Vedas are considered the sacred books in Hinduism. There are four Vedas:

  1. Rig Veda
  2. Yajur Veda
  3. Sama Veda
  4. Atharvana Veda

Vedas contain complete knowledge of life and beyond. Most of the Hinduism's rituals, beliefs and practices are based on these Vedas. Laymen cannot understand the Vedas as they may not be well versed in the language - Sanskrit. As a result only few scholars devote their time, in the study of Vedas.

However, Srimad Bhagwatam and the Bhagwad Gita contains the essence of Vedas and are easily understood by most people. Hence, Vedas are important for Hindus.

Is there any explanation about aliens in Hindu Vedas?

According to the Hindu Vedas,there are 400,000 species of humans and subhumans.These so-called Aliens are are also part of the 400,000.

According to Scientists today....Aliens Means People Living on Other Planetary or Universal Systems.

Whole Hinduism - is Clear Upon the Fact : That there are infinite number of Planets - & another infinite number of solar systems & infinite number of Universes in parallel to ours - which our Scientists verily acknowledge & preach in their scientific documentaries.

Now - Before nearly 3000 years from Today - There was an Indian Sage Scientist who mentioned the Alien Flying Ships or Machines.........and classified the Cosmological Space ships as 3 Types.

1) Ships/Planes that fly from one place to other within a Planet.

2) Shipsl/Planes that fly from one Planet to Other within a solar system

3) Ships/Planes that fly from One Universe to Other Universes.

His Name was - Sage BHARADWAJA. The Wisdom in His book on the above 3 points stunns the scientists of today.

However - Vedas, Mahabharata, Ramayana & Other Scriptures - Describe in details about - Beings both Human, Semi Divine, & Divine (Which we call them as Aliens) - Keep coming & Going from other Heavens, or Universes or Planets to Earth - To & Fro.

There is abundant - proof on your Question - about Alients in Hinduism.

All you need to do is - To have enough patience to identify & discover the right books & the right verses. All the best - Go Ahead.

Hinduism - is a Vast Ocean of Knowledge from the GOD Himself. You need a lot of time to understand that Knowledge of GOD through Books of Hinduism. Though some parts have been corrupted by the Then Kings or Priests in influence......Most of the Current Scientific Knowledge is still available in those Scriptures.

GOD Bless you. Harey Krishna.

What are the relationship between the Vedic text and Vedas?

There are the four Vedas (the Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharvana Vedas) but the period of the development of Hinduism in which they were written (and some time before that) is sometimes referred to as the Vedic period. So, hypothetically, any text from that time could be "Vedic" but as a general rule the Vedic texts are the texts that only come from the four Vedas.
