Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from A Vedic Reader for Students

The Rigveda is undoubtedly the Oldest literary monument Of the indo-european languages. But the exact period when the hymns were composed is a matter of conjecture. All that we can say with any approach to certainty is that the oldest of them cannot date from later than the thirteenth century B. C. This assertion is based on the following grounds. Buddhism, which began to spread in India about 500 B. O., presupposes the existence not only Of the Vedas, but also of the intervening literature Of the Brahmanas and Upanishads. The development of language and religious thought apparent in the extensive literature Of the successive phases of these two Vedic periods renders it necessary to postulate the lapse Of seven or eight centuries to account for the gradual changes, linguistic, religious, social, and political, that this literature displays. On astronomical grounds, one Sanskrit scholar has (cf. P. 146) concluded that the Oldest Vedic hymns date from 3000 B. O., while another puts them as far back as 6000 B. 0. These calculations are based on the assumption that the early Indians possessed an exact astronomical knowledge Of the sun's course such as there is no evidence, or even probability, that they actually possessed. On the other hand, the possibility of such extreme antiquity seems to be disproved by the relationship Of the hymns of the Rigveda to the oldest part of the Avesta, which can hardly date earlier than from about 800 rc. That relationship is so close that the language Of the Avesta, if it were known at a stage some five centuries earlier, could scarcely have differed at all from that Of the Rigveda. Hence the Indians could not have separated from the Iranians much sooner than 1300 B. C.

About the Author: About the Author:

"Arthur Anthony Macdonell (1854 - 1930), 7th of Lochgarry, was a noted Sanskrit scholar.

Macdonell was born in India and educated at Gottingen University, then matriculated in 1876 at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, gaining a classical exhibition and three scholarships (for German, Sanskrit, and Chinese). He graduated with classical honours in 1880 and was appointed Taylorian Teacher of German at Oxford. In 1883 he obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Leipzig, and then became Deputy Professor of Sanskrit at Oxford in 1888, and Boden Professor of Sanskrit in 1899.

Macdonell edited various Sanskrit texts, wrote a grammar, compiled a dictionary, published a work on Vedic Mythology, and a wrote a history of Sanskrit." (Quote from wikipedia.org)

Buchbeschreibung Forgotten Books. Paperback. Buchzustand: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 300 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Excerpt from A Vedic Reader: For StudentsThis Reader is meant to be a companion volume to my Vedic Grammar for Students. It contains thirty hymns comprising just under 300 stanzas. These hymns have been taken exclusively from the Rigveda, not only because that Veda represents the earliest and most important phase of the sacred language and literature of India, but because the addition of specimens from the later Vedic literature with their divergences in speech and thought would tend to confuse the learner beginning the study of the oldest period. All the books of the Rigveda have been drawn upon except the ninth. The reason of this exception is that, though the whole of the ninth book practically consists of hymns addressed to Soma only, the hymn which in my opinion represents that deity best occurs in another (the eighth) book. All the most important metres are represented, though no specimens of the rare and complex strophic measures could be given because none of the hymns composed in them seemed to be suitable for the Reader. I have also considered literary merit as far as possible in making the selection. As regards subject-matter, each of the more important deities is represented by one hymn, Agni alone by two. There are besides a few hymns of a different type. One is concerned with social life (x. 34), one with magical ideas (vii. 103), two with cosmogony (x. 90. 129), and three with eschatology (x. 14. 15. 135). The selection thus forms a brief epitome of the Rigveda, the earliest monument of Indian thought. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
