About this Item

Contents: Introduction. Text and translation. Prapathaka I-X. Bibliography.Index to the name of Samans in Latyayana-Srauta-Sutra. Index to Mantras in Latyayana-Srauta-Sutra. Latyayana-Srauta-Sutra's word index. Pratikasuci. "The Srauta Sutras form a very important unit of the Sutra literature which lays down in brief the quintessence of the Vedic texts i. e. the Samhitas and the Brahmanas strengthening further the sacrificial tradition in India. As it is known worldwide, the sacrificial tradition in India is based mainly on the oldest book of the human beings namely the Rgveda (RV) as also on the Yajurveda (YV) and the Samaveda (SV) which have developed a variety of recensions with difference of utterance and practice. "Although there are a 'mille' recensions of the Samaveda mainly based on the singing of the verses in RV, only three are found in practice today: I. Kauthuma 2. Ranayaniya and 3. Jaiminiya or Talavakara. The Latyayana Srauta Sutra (LSS) which is critically edited here and translated into English dealing with the duties of the chanting priests viz. the Udgatars, Prastotar, Pratihartar and Subrahmanya in the Srauta ritual with special reference to the Soma sacrifice, belongs to the Kauthuma recension, largely depending on the SV samhita and Pancavimsa Brahmana (which is also known as Tandya Maha-Brahmana) as also the Sadvimsa Brahmana.
