Seers, Deities and Metres in Vedas

Manju Jain (Author)
Synopsis The Vedas are used as unimpeachable evidence in India. It is considered that one who does not know the seers, deities and metres of the verses, is deprived of their fruit but the Vedas never indicate them. The Brahmanas while enjoining the application of Rgvedic verses in the sacrifice ceremonial mention their seers, deities and metres. The Brs are the earliest and most reliable source of knowing them. In this treatise, such notices have been sort out and they are compared with the later Vedic tradition. The tradition comprises of Vedic commentators, Brhaddevata and the Anukramanis. The Brs. Generally indicate the initial words of the verses through sometimes one and the same Br. Is variant in view regarding the seer, deity or metre. The Brs. Sometimes refer to the verses by the names of the seer, deity or metre. As regards the seer, they do not mention the personal names of the descendants. Another features of the Brs. is that they do not mention the varieties of metre. Something they refer to the meter by its number of padas. They do not distinguish between Brhaspti and Brahmanaspati and the various forms of Agni have been accepted as the functional appellation of the terrestrial that they often mention them by those of the majority of the verses. The author has explicitly elaborated all these features in this treatise.
