Description

The Vedas constitute the back-bone of our entire culture and development through the millennia not only in India but also abroad. For mostof us, they constitute the first literature that dawned on us at the earliest time of man's appearance on this globe. In India, we regard them as the revealed knowledge.

This work is a part of a big project in which the editors propose to bring out the translations of various other Vedic texts, particularly the Vedic Samhitas. The Rig Samhita has 10,589 verses, the Yajur 1,975, the Samaveda 1,875, and the Atharva 5,977 verses, and thus the total comes to 20,416 verses.

This volume has a selection of something like one thousand verses out of this entire stock for the benefit of entire humanity. Humanity is proud of this most ancient heritage, and it has been the most amazing accomplishment iof mankind to have preserved this divine literature to this day under all hazards and vicissitudes of history.
