About this title


The Vedas, as it is claimed, are eternal and believed to be the revelation of divine wisdom to inspire rsis of old. The Sama Veda is one of four Vedas which had been handed to us over a period of thousands of years by oral tradition, without an error of even a syllable, before they were reduced to writing in very recent times. The Vedas are of varying lengths with varying number of mantras or hymns. The present work contains the whole text of Sama Veda in Nagari script with English translation and some commentary with a new light. Apart from the text, the book contains an exhaustive and critical introduction which give detailed information useful for scholars and students in this field. The first part of this book contains four chapters (Kandas), namely, (1) Agneya Kanda (2) Indra Kanda (3) Pavamana Kanda and (4) Aranya Kanda. The second part of the book or the uttara archika contains the remaining mantras (hymns). The sole means to be resorted to by man, according to Sama-Veda is prayers. These prayers take the form of extolling the various universal devas for their varied activities in establishing the creatures, evolving and maintaining them all impartially. The devotee prays for an unimpaired life of a hundred years in welfare, keen in perceptions, and sound of limbs and in understanding.
