The Vedas

  • The Ṛigveda - hymns (mantras) that formulate the mythology of ancient Vedic practice
  • The Sāmaveda - mantras from the Rig Veda, but arranged in an order specifically suited to the Soma sacrifice
  • The Yajurveda - detailed prose instructions for the sacrifices
  • The Atharvaveda - semi-magical spells against enemies, sorcerers, diseases and mistakes made during the sacrificial ritual, as well as kingly duties and some deeper spiritual truths.
