About the Book:

The Rig Veda derives its name from the word Rik<-i>, which means a mantra, in which the collection of mantras or hymns consisting of Verses are intended for loud recitation. The Verses in the Rig Veda are divided into ten mandalas or books (Vols. I & II contain 6 and 4 books respectively) which are further subdivided into hymns. The hymns are in praise of the Supreme Being. There are also hymns, addressed to Gods representing natural phenomena, domestic gods and abstract gods.<-p>

This unique work brings within the easy reach of all readers of English, a translation of the hymns of the Rig Veda which aims to be close to the spirit of the original, is as readable and intelligible as the nature of the subject.<-p>
