Description

The book contains Samhita texts of Rgveda, the Padapatha, Sayana’s commentary, English translation and notes. The notes after the Padapatha and Sayana’s commentary on each mantra are of a lexicographical and exegetical nature. The lexicographical notes can substitute the complete Vedic dictionary. There are appendices on Gammar, Metre, Accent, Vedic mythology and also some remarks on the age of the Rgveda.

The quotations in Sayana’s commentary have been traced, compared, and the figures given where it was possible and practical. The English translation is very much useful to understand the Samhita texts which are very carefully selected in the present section. The Bibliography is a mine of important source books.

The book was prepared by an eminent vedic scholar Peter Peterson and it is edited further and thoroughly revised by R Zimmermann, S J The students of Vedic studies will be highly benefited by this well-prepared book by a scholar of outstanding merit.
