The Satapatha Brahmana in the Kanviya Recension (3 Volumes Bound in One)

Raghuvira (Author) W. Caland (Author)
Synopsis The Yajus Samhita, one of the four main divisions of the Samhita literature consists of sacrificial formulas, chiefly in prose, and is designed for the use of the Adhvaryu priest and his assistants who perform the manual part of the sarcrifice, muttereing mantras during each act of the Mahabhasya records that Yajus had one hundred and one recensions. Of the two (White) and Krsna (Black), the sukla Yajurveda, known as the Vajasaneyi Samhita has two recensions: that of the Madhyandinas and that of the Kanvas. The Vajasaneyi Samhita possesses a single Brahmana (a theological treatise) named Satapatha which has come down to us in two recensions, one of the Madhyandinas and another of the Kanvas. The present treatise contains in Nagari script the text of the first seven Kandas of the Satapatha Brahmana in the Kanva recension which run parallel to recension and which differ considerably from each other. For the remaining Kandas of the Brahmana, there being no marked difference, the editor has given only a list of the distincitive readings of the Kanva text. The text as presented here is divided into seven Kandas viz, (i) Ekapat, (2) Haviryajna, (3) Uddhari, (4) Adhvara, (5) Graha, (6) Vajapeya and (7) Rajasuya. Apart from the Text, collated from the MSS, the book contains an exhaustive and critical Introduction which consists of 102 pages and is divided into five chapters. Ch. I deals with the Vedic Brahmana. Ch. II describes the MSS. Of the Kanviya Satapataha Brahmana. Ch. III notices the Grammatical peculiarities including accentuation, phonology, morphology, lexicography and Syntax of the Kanva recension. Ch. IV observes the relation of the Kanva books 1-7 to the Madhyandina text 1-5 as well as to the Black Yajurveda and other texts. Ch. V examines the remaing book which the Kanvas possess in common with the Madhyandinas. It is followed by a Tabular concordance of the distinctive readings of the Kanva text.
