One poster cites Sankaracharya as

"Brahman is the source, i.e. the cause of the great body of Scripture, consisting of the Ṛg-veda and other branches"

Is Brahman the source of all scripture, including non-Hindu ones?

  • Both Bible and Quran are said to be from God. But other scriptures could be from devatas, asuras, etc. Yaksha prashna of the Mahabharata is authored by a Yaksha. Indra has his own revelations, etc.
