The word 'apourusheyA' is to be aptly understood as not born of human
effort,meaning,however knowledgable a human being can be  the topic of
vedas deal with solution to human problems with  a remedy of MOKSHA.
The very topic to understand needs adhikAritvam and shraddA. One needs a
GURU to teach VEDANTA.
The words positioned ina sentence have to be aptly and properly understood.
Swami Sarvabhutananda
Even though the Vedas are "apourusheya",the adhikari is the human being.In order to understand them he requires a higher level of understanding,which is based on intuition.Since,Moksha cannot be understood by a mere word,the human being needs the importance of intuition.
