Veda means “(sacred) knowledge” (cf. Greek (w)oida, English wit, witness, German wissen). The Four Vedas are the oldest extant texts of India and contain religious and ritual poetry, ritual formulas and the explanatory prose that interprets these very texts, and additionally, in the late Vedic Upaniṣads, some early philosophy.
