Preface

In the Mantra and Brahmana portions of the Veda, are found abudant political data. While the terms, Sabha and Samiti denote the popular Vedic Assemblies, others such as Gana, Sajata and Janarajya reflect the democratic notions of Vedic India.

Although several writers like JAYASWAL, MUKERJI, GHOSAL-only to mention a few- have admitted that the Vedas contain a rich mine of political information, yet no single work is entirely dedicated to a critical study and examination of the Ancient Indian Polity embodied in Vedic texts.

An attempt is made in this book- Vedakalinajanatantrasthanani-to synchronise the Vedic conception of statecraft, associated with the three divisions of the Vedic society: Brahma, Ksatra and Visa. It is my firm conviction that the later Indian Ministerial Councial can be traced to the Vedic concept of Mahajanasabha.

It remains for me to thank the Government of India for the financial assistance given to me in carrying out my studies. Padmabhusana, Dr. V. RAGHAVAN deserves my thanks for his useful suggestions. I iwe a deep debt of gratitude to Dr. B.R. Sharma, the Director of Kendriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, and the Vidyapeetha Society, Tirupati for kindly undertaking the publication of my work. Lastly I thank the staff of M. L. J. Press, Madras, who have seen this work through press with accuracy and skill.
