  • Vedas actually also have spiritual meaning and they are important because all scriptures including Puranas,Mahabharata,Ramayana,Smritis too consider vedas(including rig veda to be highest).in Rig Veda too all verses are actually spiritual also but difficult to understand it s meaning,that's why upanishads are there which explain a lot. – Karmanya Nanda Feb 5 '19 at 17:32
