Rigveda Brahmanas (THE AITAREYA AND KAUSITAKI BRAHMANAS OF THE RIGVEDA)
Rigveda Brahmanas (THE AITAREYA AND KAUSITAKI BRAHMANAS OF THE RIGVEDA)
Description
About the Book:

The present volume (No.25 of the Harvard Oriental Series), contains Dr. A.B. Keith's English translation of the Aitareya and Kausitaki Brahmanas of the Rgveda.

The translation of the Aitareya Brahmana is based on the accurate original text edited by Haug, Aufrecht and the one used by Sayana in his commentary while that of the Kausitaki Brahmana is based on the text edited by Lindner. Both the Brahmanas are important, for they have preserved for us the ancient traditions of their schools, not available from any older source.

Dr. Keith has added a long introduction to this volume. Extending over 103 pages it covers the Comparison of Contents of the two Brahmanas, their Relation, Composition, Dates, Ritual, Language, Style, Metre, Commentaries and Editions. In the treatment of this vast subject matter the reader will find abundant material to ensure the correctness of textual interpretation in the translation of the text.

This monumental work is an excellent contribution to the Knowledge of sacrificial cult that characterized Indian life in the Vedic age.

I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist.
