Volume I: Mandala 1

 

Foreword

We have great pleasure in presenting to scholars and devout readers V of the Rgveda the Fourth Reprint of the First Volume of the Rgveda along with the celebrated commentary of the great Acarya Sayana. The Rgveda is the oldest and the most important of all the works of Vedic literature.

The second and the third editions of this volume were printed in years 1972 and 1980 respectively. At the time of printing the second edition a few necessary foot-notes were added and the printing errors in the first edition were all duly rectified. The present fourth edition is in a way a mere reprint of this second corrected edition.

We take this opportunity to acknowledge the substantial financial help, the Mandala received from Prof. Shankar Yadav Ponkshe Trust founded by his kind and pious wife, the late Smt. Sumatibai Shankar Ponkshe with a view to helping studies in Vedic texts and Religion.

We must not forget the services rendered by Shri. S. P. Barve, propritor, Parashuram Process, Pune 411 005, who made the printing of this volume as speedily and as accurate as possible.

We trust that the edition will prove to be of great use to Vedic Scholars.

 

Introduction

We have great pleasure in presenting to students and devout admirers of Ancient Indian Culture, the First volume of the Rgveda which contains the First Mandal and the commentary of Sayanacharya thereon.

The Vaidic Samshodhan Mandal (The Vedic Research institute) under whose auspices the work is being published, was founded in memory of the late Lokamanya B. G. Tilak on the 1st of August l928, under the auspices of the Tilak Maharashtra University, Poona, with the following objects:—

(1) To provide Facilities f or higher studies in Vedic literature.
(2) To collect books and Mss. concerning Vedic literature.
(3) To publish original Vedic Texts with commentaries.
(4) To publish such other literature as would help the study of Vedic literature, e. g. indices, Lexicons, Notes, Original contributions etc.
(5) To carry on research in general.

An authoritative edition of Rgveda with Sayana’s commentary has been a desideratum for a number of years. Prof. Max Muller’s edition is out of print as also the Bombay edition. It is a truism to say that a copy of Rgveda with Sayana’s commentary is essential for the study of Vedic literature; for Vedic studies must begin with Rgveda which is the source and Foundation el: all the other Samhitas, Brahmanas etc. To remove the long-felt want of a reliable edition we had to do the preliminary work necessary for the publication of this Volume.

 

Volume II: Mandalas 2-5

 

Foreward

This second volume of the Rgveda-Samhita had gone out tint since long and was a long-felt desideratum for the scholars also for the students of the Vedas.

We gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to the authorities of the Pro! Shankar Yadav Ponkshe Public Trust, Pune and Mr. Mohan Rajaram Anturkar for their generous donations of Rs. 1, 05,000/- and Rs. 10,000/- respectively, without which this project could not have been completed.

Our sincere thanks are also due to numerous other donors, who contributed to this project.

We have great pleasure in presenting to the scholars of Oriental lores and admirers of Ancient Indian Culture, the Second Edition of the Rgveda Sãyanabhasya Vol.III, critically edited and published by the Mandala in 1941 and which had gone out of print since long.

It is gratifying to note that we have received an appreciable financial assistance from the Ministry of Education and Social Welfare; Government of India as well as from the State Government of Maharashtra.
