A Vedic Concordance
A Vedic Concordance
Description
From the Jacket:

A Vedic Concordance is a monumental work by the famous American Sanskritist Maurice Bloom field planned, prepared and published during the years 1892-1906. It affords primarily, an easy and ready means of ascertaining the following things: First, where a given mantra occurs if it occurs but once; second, whether it occurs else where, either with or without variants, and in what places, and third, if it occurs with variants, what those variants are.

One hundred and nineteen texts in all have been drawn upon for contributions to the Concordance comprising the following ten classes: 1. Samhitas; 2. Brahmanas; 3. Aranyakas; 4. Upanisads; 5. Srautasutras; 6. Grhya-sutras, Mantra Pathas and related texts; 7. Dharma-sutras, Dharma-sastras and Smrtis; 8. Vidhana texts; 9. Ancillary texts of the Veda; 10. Four miscellaneous texts.

The author has endeavoured to embody in the Concordance with absolute completeness the following: All the stanzas and all the prose passages of foumulaic characters contained in the Samhitas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas, older Upanisads, Srauta-sutras, and Grhya-sutras. In the case of later Upanisads or of the metrical Dharma-sastras and Smrtis, or of such a text as Rg-vidhana he has adopted a selective method. From the latter texts he has culled whatever appeared to have Vedic form or Vedic flavour. The Concordance also includes a very considerable amount of material not yet published.

The Concordance may also be readily put to certain indirect or secondary uses, which are scarcely less important for the systematic progress of Vedic Study. Since the Concordance given not only the places of actual occurrence of a given mantra in the Samhitas but also the places where it is cited in the subsidiary works on ritual and household custom and the life, it furnished the key to the liturgical or ritual employment of every mantra as prescribed by the ceremonial books.
