I have great pleasure to present to the admirers of Oriental learning this Golden Jubilee Volume, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Vaidika Samsodhana Mandala, Poona.
This Volume, consisting 35 papers contributed by learned scholars from India and abroad, represent Vedic as well as Avestan topics. The papers are arranged in the alphabetical order of the names of authors. I record my deep sense of gratitude towards the contributors for their scholarly contributions.
The expenditure incurred on the publication of this volume has been met out from the munificient grant sanctioned by the Government of Maharashtra towards the Mandala’s Golden Jubilee Publication & Celebrations. I offer my sincere thanks to the Government of Maharashtra, for their kind financial assistance.
Our Vice-President and well wisher Shriman M.S. Parkhe made available the required quantity of quality paper for the printing of this volume. I am highly obliged to him for his timely help.
The Printing of Vedic and Avstan topic in Roman script needs the type with unusual diacritical marks. Shriman Gopal Krishna Modi of Gujarati Type Foundry, Bombay, ignoring the commercial aspect, specially prepared the matrixes and supplied such unusual types to our printing unit, at concessional rates. Our sincere thanks, therefore, are due to him also.
Our thanks are also due to Shri Pathak Brothers of Suhas Printers, Poona who with their usual care & forbearance helped us in printing out this volume.
I hope this volume will meet the approval of scholars.
