The Vedas. INTRODUCTION. The Gita is a doctrine of universal truth. Its message is universal, sublime, and non-sectarian although it is a part of the scriptural trinity of Sanaatana Dharma, commonly known as Hinduism. The Gita is very easy to understand in any language for a mature mind. In Hinduism, Pramāṇas Śāstras refers to the authority of the scriptures (śruti, Vedas) with regard to puruṣārtha, the objects of human pursuit, namely dharma (right conduct), artha (means of life), kāma (pleasure) and mokṣa (liberation). Together with smṛti ("that which is remembered, tradition": Dharmaśāstra, Hindu Epics, Puranas), ācāra (good custom), and ātmatuṣṭi.

The Bhagavad Gita forms a section of the sixth book of the Mahabharata, an important Sanskrit epic in the Hindu tradition that recounts a lengthy struggle and brief war between two sides of the Bharata family—the Pandavas and the Kauravas —over their kingdom of Gita recounts a dialogue in the moments leading up to the war between the Pandava warrior Arjuna and his. Manusmriti is a lawbook. It's not religious text. A Hindu is called to only follow shruti which is just the Vedas, of which I doubt many Hindus have read. I've met many Hindus that insist Gita, Mahabharat and Ramayana are religious texts rather than what they actually are- poetry and literature. Caste is not mentioned in the Vedas.

“Bhagavad Gita says so”, doesn’t sound a great answer, at least not in the context of Hinduism, where no one is expected to follow anything blindly. Sincere questioning is not only encouraged, but rather required for ones progress. THE HINDU LITERATURE. The most important Hindu scriptures are the Vedas, which are recorded in the four sub categories viz., Rig Veda, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda and Atharva Veda and contain the earliest concepts of Hinduism. These four Vedas are further divided into two parts, Karma-Kanda and Kanda is the section dealing with rituals and prayers while Jnana-Kanda deals .
