Transcript: -The Holy Vedas compose of four religious texts which are the Rig Veda, the Yajur Veda, the Sama Veda and the Atharva Veda. -The Rig Veda contains 1028 hymns to various gods which a priest recited loudly during a sacrifice to attract the god's attention to it. -The Yajur Veda contains mantras and other instructions for the priest(s) who actually perform the sacrifice. -The Sama Veda adapts mantras and verses from the Rig Veda to music which is then sung during the sacrifice. -The Atharva Veda consists of spells and charms prevalent at its time, and portrays a clearer picture of the Vedic society. -The three-in-one god known as “Brahman,” which is composed of: Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the Preserver), and Shiva (the Destroyer). -The Caste System is their social structure. -Karma which is the law that good begets good, and bad begets bad. -Reincarnation; with good karma, a person can be reborn into a higher caste, or even to godhood. Bad karma can relegate one to a lower caste, or even to life as an animal in their next life. -Nirvana is the release of the soul from the seemingly endless cycle of rebirths. -Hindus believe that existence is a cycle of birth, death, and rebirth, governed by Karma.
