Preface

It is well –known that Rgveda cannot be understood without the help of vedangas like Siksha, Kalpa, Vyakarana, Jyotisha, Nirukta and Chhandas. Among these aids Nirukta occupies the pride of place. It is indispensable for the student of Veda. So it was though useful to bring out a separate volume on Nirukta in Rgveda-Dasrsana project series. We are greateful to Dr. S.K. Ramachandra Rao for having kindly prepared this publication.

Kalpatharu Research Academy is proud that it is contributing significantly to the cause of indology through these publications. Each volume is being highly appreciated by the scholarly world, and we are gratified.

We are indebted greatly to jagadguru His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji, of Sringeri Sharada Peetham, chief patron of the Academy and to the keen interest evinced by Shri V.R. Gowrishankar, Administrator of the Sringeri Sharada Peetham and chairman of the Academy.

We are also beholden to the generous financial Assistance from the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Departmen of Education, Govt. of India New Delhi, and Dept. of Education, Govt. of Karnataka, Bangalore.

The Omkar Offset printers merits our greateful thanks for the splendid production this volume.

Introduction

Rgveda, the very source of Indian culture, contains meanings and mysteries, which can only be apprehended and appreciated with the help of Nirukta, which is an etymological and semantic treatise meant only for this purpose. Among twelve niruktas that we have references to, it is only Yaska’s that is available to us. And we have fortunately the text intact. There is also an extensive commentary on it by Bhagavad Durga (Durgacharya) and some glossatorial notes by Skanda-svamin.

The present publication provides the complete text of the third kanda of this great work. Daivata-kanda (the first two padas in this volume) together with Skanda-svamin’s commentary (part I), Durgacharya’s commentary (part II) and amy translation of the text into English along with extensivenotes and explanations.

I am greateful to Sri Daivajna K.N. Somayaji, director and chief Editor of Kalpatharu Research Academy for having given me this opportunity. I am also indebted to Jagadguru His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Bharathi Theertha mahaswamiji of Sri Sringeri Sharada Peetham and the chief patron of the Academy, the administrator of the Peetham Sri V. R. Gowrishankar, the chairman of the Academy.

I thank my friends in the Omkar offset Printers for their courtesy and cooperation.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
