Veda - Word of God

The Hindus think the Vedas are the direct knowledge of God, that God has created the whole universe in and through the Vedas, and that the whole universe exists because it is in the Vedas. 
The cow exists outside because the word "cow" is in the Vedas; man exists outside because of the word in the Vedas. 

Here you see the beginning of that theory which later on Christians developed and expressed in the text: 
"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God." 
It is the old, ancient theory of India. Upon that is based the whole idea of the scriptures. And mind, every word is the power of God. The word is only the external manifestation on the material plane. So, all this manifestation is just the manifestation on the material plane; and the Word is the Vedas, and Sanskrit is the language of God.
