Introduction to Vedas: Ṛgveda
The Vedas or the Vedic literature as a whole can be appropriately considered, due to its religious and philosophical importance, as one of the pillars, on which the Indian civilization rests upon. Ṛgveda, being the most ancient available piece of excellent literature of historical significance, has always been a worthy subject of research for the scholars worldwide. It fascinates its readers by its various interesting aspects which will be dealt with in the course. The course aims at providing a detailed introduction to Ṛgveda. Though designed for a general audience interested in literature or in Sanskrit literature, to be precise, students following academic courses of Sanskrit could also get benefited from it.
