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.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
