General definition (in Hinduism)
Thus Herodotus calls Onomacritus a “depository of oracles” (διαθέτην χρησμὣν) the word carrying the meaning of “one who arranges”, corresponding to the term Vyāsa in Sanskrit. These collections of Logia were then generally called 'deposits', the word also bearing the meaning of “testaments” as containing the divine will or dispensation.Source: archive.org: Orpheus by G.R.S.
