Dictionary of Vedas

T. Rengarajan (Author)
Synopsis The Book "Vedas" is considered to be a Sacred books in India, and believed to be the earliest literary recond of the Indo-European Race. It is indeed difficult to say when the earliest portions of these compositions came into existence. Many shrewd guesses have been offered, but none of them can be proved to be incontestably true. The Vedas were handed down from mouth to mouth from a period of unknown antiquity, and the Hindus generally believed that they were never composed by men. It was therefore generally supposed that either they were taught by god to the sages, or that they were of themselves revealed to the sages who were "seers" of the hymns. Thus we find that when some time had elapsed after composition of the Vedas, people had come to look upon them not only as very old but so old, that they had theoretically at least, no beginning in time, though they were believed to have revealed at, some unknown remote period at the beginning of each creation. The book Dictionary of Vedas, consists of collections of Vedas, namely Rg, Sama, Yajur and Atharva. Of these the Rg is probably the earliest. The Sama Veda has practically no independent value, for it consists of stanzas, taken entirely from Rg, which were meant to be sung to certain fixed melodies and may thus be called the book of chants. The Yajur Veda, however contains in addition to the verses taken from the Rg Veda, many original prose formulas. The arrangement of the verses of the Sama Veda is solely wit reference to their place and use in the Soma sacrifice, the contents of the verses were employed in the various religious sacrifices. It is therefore called the Veda of Yajus sacrificial prayers. These may be contrasted with the arrangements in the Rg Veda, in this that, there the verses are generally arranged in accordance with the gods who are adored in them. The Dictionary covers all Vedic gods and goddesses in the alphabetical mode, with sufficient general names. The book covers, Sukla Yajur Veda, Krsna Yajur veda, gemology, time calculation, hymns invoked by the poet to god, hymns addressed to gods by the poets, important dynasty in the Rg Vedic period Conpectus of the chief manuals of Vedic gods and other information. The book is designed as per dictionary forms in which will be very helpful for the readers.
