C.R. Swaminathan (Editor) C.R. Swaminathan (Translator)
Synopsis It is for the first time that a complete critical edition of the Satapathabrahmanam of the Kanva School of the Sukla Yajurveda alongwith its English translation is being published. This volumes has taken into account the readings available in a few more manuscripts, besides those in the published editions in the Telugu script, which were not available to Porf. Caland who brought out a critical edition of its first seven Kandas. It is also the first attempt at providing a complete English translation. No doubt the texts of the Satapatha of the Madhyandina and Kanva School do not differ much from Kandas VIII to XVI and Prof. Eggeling’s translation of the former is available. Textual Notes to substantiate the choice of particular readings; a section under the heading Vimarsa discussing certain selected topics arising out of a study of the text; an exhaustive list of contents, Brahmana-wise and Glossary of technical terms are some of the additional features of this attempt. So far, the Brahmana texts have been looked at and studied by those whose primary concern has been with cosmology, religion and ritual. It is only in the last decade that there has been a new and fresh interest in the study of art as ritual and ritual as artistic practice. In this context the re-edited publication of this fundamental text on ritual- the Satapathabrahmanam-is both timely and relevant.
