Description

Atharvaveda describes the application of both type of ceremonies viz peaceful affirmation and the witchcraft (Abhicarika) ceremonies.

The Vedas are the most important records of the religion and the institutions of the Aryans. The last and the latest Veda is the atharvaveda, which is addressed with many other names such as- Amrtaveda, Atmaveda, Angiro Veda, Atharvangirasa, Bhrgvangirasa, Ksatra, Bhaisajya and Chandoveda, etc.

Atharvaveda describes the application of both type of ceremonies viz peaceful affirmation and the witchcraft (Abhicarika) ceremonies.

The most cryptic mysteries of universe, the divine prays, applications of offerings, cure for the ailments, marriage, reproduction, family, administration, social pattern and self – protection, education, harmony-sense of unity, pharmaceutical, witchcraft applications, women welfare, etc. all aspects of the universe and the human life are embedded with it.

The oldest Bhasya of Acarya Sayana too is available in this Samhita. Many translations on Atharva are available, but entire subject-matter on Atharvaveda was translated with critical and exegetical commentary by W.D. Whitney in English and it was edited by Charles Rockwell Lanman during 1905. The translation of the present edition is based on this edition, and includes Sanskrit text. Its old usage has been supplanted with corresponding usage of modern English.

In the last we have given the contents of mantras in Devanagari for the ready reference of the readers. Whitney’s translation is not available on 20th Kanda, we have completed it.
