Vedas: wikipedia; There are four Vedas: the Rigveda (oldest), the Yajurveda, the Samaveda and the Atharvaveda. 5,000 Year Old Manuscript Describes TV's, Atomic Energy and Traveling to Other Planets, 11/26/17
Each Veda is subclassified into four major text types – the Samhitas (mantras and benedictions), the Aranyakas (text on rituals, ceremonies, sacrifices and symbolic-sacrifices), the Brahmanas (commentaries on rituals, ceremonies and sacrifices), and the Upanishads (text discussing meditation, philosophy and spiritual knowledge). Some scholars add a fifth category – the Upasanas (worship).

Upanishads: The more than 200 Upanishads are considered by Hindus to contain utterances (śruti) concerning the nature of ultimate reality (brahman) and describing the character of and path to human salvation (moksha or mukti).
The Upanishads are commonly referred to as Vedānta, variously interpreted to mean either the "last chapters, parts of the Veda" or "the object, the highest purpose of the Veda".
Gaudapada: Mandukya Karika; Katha Upanishad - Death as Teacher

110616l Vedanta: The term veda means "knowledge" and anta means "end," and originally referred to the classical Upanishads. Vedanta also refers to various philosophical traditions based on the three basic texts of Hindu philosophy, namely the Principal Upanishads, the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita.
There are at least ten schools of Vedanta, of which Advaita Vedanta is one.
