Bhagavad Gita.(BG)

Lord Krishna instructs to Arjuna as follows:

BG 2.46: All purposes served by a small well can at once be served by a great reservoir of water. Similarly, all the purposes of the Vedas can be served to one who knows the purpose behind them.
Further Lord Krishna says:

BG 15.15:
vedaiś ca sarvair aham eva vedyo vedānta-krd veda-vid eva cāhamBy all the Vedas
I am to be known. Indeed, I am the compiler of Vedānta, and I am the knower of the Vedas.

Srila Prabhupada
Vedānta mean the last word in Vedic wisdom, and the author and knower of the Vedānta philosophy is Lord Krishna; and the highest Vedāntist is the great soul who takes pleasure in chanting the holy name of the Lord. That is the ultimate purpose of all Vedic mysticism.
