Dialogue Hymns of Rgveda

Satya Dev Choudhary (Author)

This book deals with eleven dialogue-hymns of the Rgveda out if them two are composed in soliloquy form and are concerned with a gambler and mendicant respectively. Three hymns are connected mainly with Indra (the god of rains), two with the couples like Agastya and Lopamudra and Pururavas and Urvashi and one with the twin siblings: Yama and Yami. Out of the rest, one hymn displays a delightful and heavenly picture of the marriage ceremony which is traditionally prevalent in Indra even today, another tells us about the prosperous condition of the ancient traders like Panis and yet another deals with the crossing through the currents of two rivers by Vishvamitra, a vedic seer.

The original text in Vedic Sanskrit has been translated in as easy an expression as possible. In the 'Comments' on each hymn, after its short summary the description as furnished by Shaunaka in the Brhadddevata about it has been introduced. Then the movements of the tale has been traced through the texts like the Brahmanas the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, Puranas, the epic-poems, plays and so on.
