Conceptions & Misconceptions about Vedas

Veda is a collection of several Vicharas included & made as a Grantha in 10 ways: "मन्थन, प्रयोग, चिकित्सा, ज्ञान, परिणाम, प्रागाथ, परिणय, विशेषण, परिचयut, पूर्णता" || It is all time, all place truth! It is not related to any particular religion, caste, place or time. It doesn't has any kind of सैद्धान्तिकपर-विरोध, धैव, देवदूषणं, or हिंसा | It is not at all मत - धर्मग्रन्थ | It is a शुद्धवैज्ञानिकसंशोधनाग्रन्थ | It is not in Samskruta Bhaasha, it’s in Brahmi Bhaasha.
