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.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
