A very interesting teaching if you can take the time to watch.  I think it contains valuable insights for all to consider.

The Vedas (Sanskrit véda वेद, "knowledge") are a large body of texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrit, the texts constitute the oldest layer of  Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-1 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-2 - The Vedas are http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apaurusheyatva - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-3 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-4 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-5 - They are supposed to have been directly revealed, and thus are called http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%9Aruti - śruti ("what is heard"), http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-6 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedas#cite_note-7 - distinguishing them from other religious texts, which are called http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sm%E1%B9%9Bti - smṛti ("what is remembered").

The Vedas are among the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_literature - oldest sacred texts . The Samhitas date to roughly 1500–1000 BCE, and the "circum-Vedic" texts, as well as the redaction of the Samhitas, date to c. 1000-500 BCE, resulting in a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vedic_period - Vedic period , spanning the mid 2nd to mid 1st millennium BCE, or the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronze_Age - Late Bronze Age and the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Age_India - Iron Age .

Transmission of texts in the Vedic period was by oral tradition alone, preserved with precision with the help of elaborate mnemonic techniques.

Hindus believe that the texts(the Vedas) were received by scholars direct from God and passed on to the next generations by word of mouth.
