A Vedic Concordance

Price : $54.75
ISBN # : 9788124606650
Author : Maurice Bloomfield
pages: 1076
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : D.K. Printworld
Published : 2014

This volume, A Vedic Concordance, is part of the Harvard Oriental Series. This reprint of the 1906 edition is an alphabetic index to every line of every stanza of the published Vedic literature and to the liturgical formulas; it is an index to the Vedic mantras, together with an account of their variations in the different Vedic books.

This volume is expected to serve two purposes. 1. It gives a comprehensive index of all the mantras. 2. It registers the variants of mantras that are not wholly identical. In addition, it spells out few secondary uses. (i) It is a key to the liturgical employment of the mantras. (ii) It is virtually a finding-index of rites and practices. (iii) It is a tool for future editors of Vedic texts. (iv) It is a repertory of the most archaic Hindu prose. (v) It also provides some miscellaneous uses to the future researchers in the domain of Vedic studies and sciences.

A must buy for all universities, colleges, institutions, scholars, researchers, and students who are engaged in Vedic studies.
