After the publication of book, Why Read Rig Veda, in 1998 there have been persistent requests for a book on Rig Veda summarizing the key ideas in its ten Mandalas. This book is response to such requests.

Summarizing the knowledge in 10,552 mantras in 80 pages is not possible. Simply giving the titles and their brief descriptions serves no one. The readers want to see the texts of mantras and their translations.

The translations of the mantras are given in bold and most of them have been adapted from the books, The Secret of the Veda and Hymns to the Mystic Fire, of Sri Aurobindo. The translation of a mantra is divided into several parts numbered (1), (2) etc., and related them to the corresponding parts of the text of the mantra.

Table of Contents:

  • Overviews
  • Cosmic Powers and Their Mantras
  • Topics and the Associated Mantras

Customer Reviews of Essentials of Rig Veda
Review by Ranjit Roy: Thursday 12 July, 2012
This short book as its name suggests provides the essentials of Rig Veda in an organized fashion. The summary details of each mandala is made quoting prominent hymns that makes the reading attractive and gives a sense of union with the original.

It is a wonderful composition of a summary of the large Rig Veda text. I was looking for a book like this for a long time.

My high regard to Dr. Kashyap
