ON TEMPLES

The Vedas are divided into four parts viz., the Samhitas, the Brahmans, the Aranyakas and the Upanishads. The Samhitas are hymns sung in exquisite poetry, in praise of the Vedic Gods, like Indra, Agni, Varuna etc. The Brahmans are the liturgical portion of the Vedas, and contain details about the yagas and sacrifices to be performed by every one. Aranyakas are the mature thoughts of persons, who having tasted life in all its aspects, and not being satisfied with the transient pleasures of the senses, seek the salvation of the spirit, in the quietude of the Aranyas or the forests.

The Upanishads otherwise called the Vedanta, represent the quintessence and acme of the philosophic thinking, and mystic realization of the ancient seers. All these four portions, put together, present a pattern of life, to which the Hindus, right up to the present day,still owe their allegiance broadly.
