Holy Book


The knowledge of the world is at your fingertips. Essentially, you have walked into an Encyclopedia of Everything — categorized by topic, stored in sequential order, and run by the wisest of women and men. 

You ask your astute librarian, “Where can I find the encyclopedia of Christianity and Islam?”

She whispers, “In the religion section, under Holy Bible and Holy Quran.”

“And how about the Hindu holy book? The Holy Book of Hinduism?”

“It does not exist,” she knowingly states. “There is no single Hinduism holy book. You can go to the Hinduism isle and scan all the Hindu texts from there… Just to warn you, though, there are many.”

What is the main Holy Book of Hinduism?

As your wise librarian told you, there is no one single book of Hinduism.

But the most important holy books of Hinduism are the Vedas.

How many Holy Books are there in Hinduism?

There’s more of a library of Hinduism holy books than a single book.

First off, let’s start with the Vedas:

  • The Rig Veda: The Book of Mantra
  • The Sama Veda: The Book of Song
  • The Yajur Veda: The Book of Ritual
  • The Atharva Veda: The Book of Spell

Now, every Veda is divided into 4 parts:

  • Sūktas or mantras
  • Brāhmaṇas
  • Araṇyakas
  • Upaniṣads

There are also many books on the social sciences, including:

  • Pañca-Tantra
  • Hītopadeśa
  • Nīti śāstra
  • Artha-śāstra
  • Kama-sūtra
  • Brihatsaṁhita
  • Jātaka Mālā
