What is the definition of Veda?


The word 'Veda' means "knowledge" which is derived from the root 'Vid' which means "to know".

For example,

Ayurveda: knowledge (Veda) of longevity

More definitions of Veda can be found in Rigvedaadi Bhasya Bhumika by Swami Dayananda Saraswati. You may read it on page 30 from here (Note: pdf might get downloaded on a few devices)
