Sruti - an essential subject
Vedic civilization takes advantage of the perfect knowledge presented in the Vedas and presented by great sages and brāhmaṇas for the benefit of human society. Vedic injunctions are known as śruti; learning via aural reception, and the additional supplementary presentations of these principles, as given by the great sages, are known as smṛti. Therefore, one should receive the Vedic message from authorities like Lord Kṛṣṇa and His representatives. Thus, it is essential that all scientific knowledge of transcendence must be supported by śruti, smṛti and a sound logical basis.
