About the Book:

The Atharva - Veda is a comparitively late addition to the three Vedas, the Rig, Yajur and Sama. Unlike these three Vedas, the Atharva - Veda derives the name by wich it is generally known, not from the nature of its contents but from a personage of indefinitely remote antiquity named Atharvan. The hymns consist principally of prayers, formulas, and charms for protection against evil spirits of all sorts and kinds. Vol. I contains Nine mandalas or books and Vol. II contains eleven books.

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