The Samaveda

 
Devi Chand (Author)
Synopsis

The verses of Samaveda, all except 78, are taken from the Rigveda. They are arranged in a sequence different from that of the Rgveda and divided into two parts. The first part, called Purvarcika has 589 verses; the second, called Uttararcika, has 1225 stanzas. The hymns are invocation addressed to Soma, Agni and Indra meant for chanting by Udgatr priests at Soma sacrifices and not devoted chiefly to the worship of Indra who is a blustering braggadocio god and who has to befuddle himself with Soma in order to slay demons as a reputed scholar put it. Due to its special references to Pitrs or deceased forefathers, the sound of the Somans are considered by some as impure.
