The four Veda-s and the Vedic literature is, in many ways, the origin of the Indian civilization. It is probably the oldest living literary tradition in the world. Millenia later, even today, we find their indelible traces in Indian languages, customs, culture, and the general way of life.
This course takes an overview of the the four Veda-s (Rigveda, Yajurveda, Saamaveda and Atharvaveda), the later literature such as Brahmana Texts, Aaranyaka-s, Upanishads and the 6 Vedaanga-s.
Designed and delivered by Dr. Mugdha Gadgil and Dr. Gauri Moghe, this course aims to acquaint beginners with the Vedic literature and the world of the Vedic epoch.
This is the first part of the series of courses - Ved Vidya.- Exploring the Vedic World.
