✏Meditations Through the Rig Veda Book Summary : This book reconstructs the original and origins of the Rig Veda, (between 5.000 to 2.500 B.C, ) the first Indo-European written document ever to show the origin of cultures and the power of music in the recitation and construction of the original hymns. Here we find the original geometries, original forms, original sacrifice of any form to claim supremacy over the others and the continued movement of human life. This book brings together early humans with modern neurobiological discoveries and shows the origins of multiple centers of knowing (the gods), the movement of the singer and the song in a world that avoids idolatry of substances by insisting in the constant movement of singer, song, and music. If you thought you knew all there is to know about the language you use, read this book and find out the idolatry of its imagery and the possible sacrifice needed for a happy, communal and divine life.

✏The Rig Veda Book Summary : The Vedas are ancient books of hymns. There are four—the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda—and they are the primary texts of Hinduism. They had an enormous influence also on Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism. According to Hindus, the text of the Vedas is as old as the universe itself. Scholars have determined that the Rig Veda, the oldest of the four, was composed sometime between 1700 and 1100 B.C.E., codified about 600 B.C.E., and was finally committed to writing around 300 B.C.E. The Rig Veda, composed of ten books, or Mandalas, each of which is a collection of hymns (s?ktas), is one of these “great books,” but most people—even the well-educated—have never read it. It is very long and the previous translations are unsatisfactory. This book is an attempt to offer a succinct, accurate and readable translation.

✏The Rig Veda Book Summary : This illustrated edition of the Rig Veda is presented whole, permitting the reader the fullest comprehension of the holy poetry, the Gods of Hinduism and the ancient wisdom. Written by an anonymous author or authors during India's antiquity, the Rig Veda (sometimes referred to simply as 'Rigveda') literally translates to 'shrine knowledge' in ancient Sanskrit. An enormous collection of hymns, prayers and poems written in Vedic Sanskrit script, the book has astonished and impressed scholars of religion, language and India itself for centuries. It also holds a strong measure of historical importance, in that it alludes to the cultural practices, ceremonies, eating habits, and daily life in India around the year 1040 B.C. . This edition contains several illustrations of the different Hindu Gods, depicted as they were encountered in the shrines and temples by illustrator E. A. Rodrigues during the nineteenth century. Many of the poems in the Rig Veda specifically regard a given deity, describing their qualities and the manner through which they must be worshiped and celebrated. The translator, Ralph Griffith, used several manuscripts while faithfully compiling his translation of the original Sanskrit. The ten book (or Mandala) mode of division is faithfully retained, as is the original hymn and line numbering. A table of contents, allowing readers to easily locate verses in the volume, is also appended. In the present day, the Rig Veda is looked upon by most Hindus as an ancient work of literature worthy of pride and reverence. Its hymns are to this day sung during rites of passage ceremonies in India, and the text is frequently read and alluded to during the Hindu festivals all year round. Long ago, there were further meanings and interpretations of the text; however with the passage of time, modern-day readers more commonly arrive at their own conclusions. Ralph Thomas Hotchkin Griffith was a learned scholar of Indology. Born in Wiltshire, England, in his youth he became enchanted with the culture and beauty of India. After completing his studies, he spent much of his life in India, and was eventually made Principal of the Benares College in Madras. He retired, and was buried in, the towering hills of the Nilgiris district.
