Facets of Vedic Studies

Bidyut Lata Ray (Author)
Synopsis This monograph is an anthology of twenty articles on vedic expositions, interpretations and speculations. The Veda is not only a religious text, but also a literature of the most ancient period, a primordial source of human knowledge, "Knowledge par excellence". This sacred text portrays the microscopic observations of the vedic seers on macroscopic subjects. Ostensibly, different scholars have been analysing the vedic material from diverse angles. The aim and objective of this project is to focuss all such diverse studies in the Veda by congregating them in one volume. Learned reviews of our vedic scholars in the contemporary context have been included in this treatise. "The contents here project the vedic knowledge of mythology, religion, philosophy, literature, grammar, cosmology, cosmogony, space and time, astronomy, sociology, fine arts, poetry, games and sports, accent, mathematics, warfare, education and the science of healing by herbs and plants. Discussions on vedic Metres, vedic Hostile Groups and Individuals, vedic system of Education, and the Ayurveda are the alarming constituents of this monograph. The analysis of every topic is lucid, informative and subject-based. Scholars have undertaken a tedious task of exercising their capabilities in the way of extracting the very primitive speculations and conceptions made in the Veda. The vedic deities are also the significant limbs of the vedic literature. Indeed, different branches of vedic studies evolve with the revolution around these age-old divinities which are really manifested in our natural phenomena. This book includes an article on the vedic deity Aditi, the imperisable one. Though 'varieties of discourse on wide range of subjects of the vedic literature have been carried out here, still many more are left to be taken up in future. However, the present work embraces most of the thrust areas in which the general readers find their interest.
