Description
About the Book

The vedas are used as unimpeachable evidence in India. It is considered that one who does not know the seers, deities and metres of the verses, is deprived of their fruit but the vedas never indicate them. The Brahmanas while enjoining the application of Rgvedic verses in the sacrificial ceremonial, mention their seers, deities and metres. The Brs are the earliest and most reliable source of knowing them. In this treatise, such notices have been sort out and they are compared with the later Vedic tradition. The tradition comprises of Vedic commentators, Brhaddevata and the Anukramanis.

The Brs. generally indicate the initial words of the verses through sometimes one and the same Br. is variant in view regarding the seer, deity or metre. The Brs. sometimes refer to the verses by the names of the seer, deity or metre. As regards the seer, they do not mention the personal names of the descendants. Another features of the Brs. is that they do not mention the varieties of a metre. Something they refer to the meter by its number of padas. They do not distinguish between Brhaspti and Brahmanaspati and the various forms of Agni have been accepted as the functional appellation of the terrestrial Agni another speciality of the Brs. is that they often mention them by those of the majority of the verses.

The author has explicitly elaborated all these features in this treatise.

Preface

I heartily express my deepest gratitude to Dr. Shiv Raj Shastri of Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra, under whose feet I completed my doctoral work on the similar topic. I also offer my thanks to Prof. A.P. Mishra of Allahabad University, Allahabad, without whose support and guidance, I could not have achieved a little knowledge in Sanskrit. I express my deepest gratitude to composers of Brahmana Treatise and learned commentators of Vedas as my subject is based on their contribution. I have freely quoted them and have acknowledged them at the appropriate place.

I am thankful to my mother Smt. Santosh Wati and my father Dr. Chandra Mohan, together with my brothers and sisters who provided me all possible help during my studies.

I am also thankful to my husband Sr. Suresh Chand Jain who extended his full co-operation in bringing out this monumental work. He never made any complaint when I was busy in my studies.

Abhinav and Gaurav, my dear sons gave me their affectionate support by not making any disturbance during writing this treatise.

In the end, I offer my thanks to all my nears and dears who contributed and gave me good wishes.
