Rigveda is the earliest scriptures of Hinduism from which many cultural and spiritual traditions arose. In this book the author has translated a selected group of hymns from the four Vedas; the Rigveda, Yajurveda, Atharvaveda, and Samaveda and presented in the order of five yogas of Bhagavadgita, namely; Jnanayoga (path of knowledge), Karmayoga (path of action), Bhaktiyoga (path of devotion), Vibhutiyoga (path of splendor), and Rajayoga (path of mysticism). In addition, two more chapters about the hymns of Death and Earth have been included which illustrates the Vedic seers zest for life, their deep attachment for spiritual values, and respect for the departed soul.
A large part of Rig Vedic hymns were chanted (Samaveda was sung) at rituals. Yajurveda, the sacrificial formula in the prose form were also chanted at the ritual, and Atharvaveda is the Veda of prayers. Some hymns from Atharvaveda are related to removing spells and charms, but majority of them carry the spirit...
Abinash Chandra Bose's book, 'Hymns from the Vedas', is the best single reference book on Vedic lore that I have ever found. I purchased it in the late 1960s and as a now retired Sanskrit teacher it has been a handy reference source for me for >40 years. The 52-page introduction by itself is a veritable 'gold mine' of information for students of Hinduism, comparative religion and Sanskrit. I highly recommend this source; my copy is well-used with much underlining. I give it a 5-star rating which would be उत्तमम् 'Uttamam' = "excellent" in Sanskrit.
