    Your essential guide to the Vedas.

    When were the Vedas written, and why? Who were the people who composed them? Where did they come from, how did they live? Questions, conjectures and debates go hand in hand with the Vedas, the sacred keystone texts of Hinduism. Now, noted historian Roshen Dalal sifts through centuries of information and research to present, in a straightforward and succinct manner, an account of the Vedas that is authoritative yet accessible, thus appealing to both scholars and lay readers.

    In this book, key insights into the Vedas are complemented by a celebration of the poetry that lies within the texts. Using socio-economic data and archaeological and linguistic research, the author introduces us to the Vedic era, enabling us to understand the culture and philosophy that produced these ancient and sublime texts.

    Based on original research and numerous authoritative sources, including auxiliary texts and early commentaries

    Appendices featuring selected hymns from all four Vedas, and listing all the hymns that make up the Rig Veda

    Conveniently cross-referenced with a wealth of information
