  • In any case, the reason the Vedas are divided into separate books is so that the people of the Kali Yuga can more easily understand them. They're divided according to the duties of the different kinds of Yagna priests, like the Hotar, Adhvaryu, etc.; see my answer here: hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/6807/36 – Keshav Srinivasan Dec 22 '15 at 7:26
