1 Devi Chand
The Atharvaveda: Sanskrit text with English Translation
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8121501725 / 9788121501729; Fifth Edition; Cloth; New; New; 
Are the Vedas three or four in number? The Western scholars basing their arguments on the Purusasukta and the word abhicara meaning sorcery and charms have concluded that the Vedas are three and Atharvaveda does not belong to the main body as it deals with black magic. This conclusion is wrong; for, the Atharvaveda deals with all those evils that have plagued mankind from the dawn of creation and suggests remedies in the form of medicines and prayers. From the point of view usefulness, the Atharvaveda is the best for man, as it has prayers for his well-being. Devi Chand's translation is based on Swami Dayanand's interpretation. He has also made use of the commentaries of eminent Indian and foreign Vedic scholars. He has spared no pains to bring home the message of the Atharvaveda to contemporary man. The notes, index and the introduction adds to the value of this book. All those interested to find solutions to the myriad problems that affect them everyday shall find this book highly useful.

2 Devi Chand
The Samaveda: Sanskrit text with English Translation
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8121501997 / 9788121501996; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The verses of Samaveda, all except 78, are taken from the Rgveda. They are arranged in a sequence different from that of the Rgveda and divided into two parts. The first part, called Purvarcika has 589 verses; the second, called Uttararcika, has 1225 stanzas. The hymns are invocation addressed to Soma, Agni and Indra meant for chanting by Udgatr priests at Soma sacrifices and not devoted chiefly to the worship of Indra and who has to befuddle himself with Soma in order to slay demons as a reputed scholar put it. Due to its special reference to Pitrs or deceased forefathers, the sounds of the Samans are considered by some as impure. This edition of Samaveda, a translation by Devi Chand, is based on the exposition of Swami Dayanand. The translator has furnished references in the footnotes to different interpretations of Indian and foreign scholars. An introduction and glossary-cum index are added for the benefit of those not acquainted with Samaveda. Everyone shall find this an excellent book for a thorough understanding of the Samaveda.

3 Devi Chand
The Yajurveda: Sanskrit text with English Translation
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8121502942 / 9788121502948; Seventh Impression; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Vedas are the foundation on which the imposing Hindu religious edifice is built. The Yajurveda contains hymns taken from the older Rigveda and prose passages which are new. The hymns display considerable deviation from the original Rigvedic text. It can be called a priestly manual; for it lays down rules for the performance of various sacrifices. It has two samhitas or a collection of hymns of mantras; these are Taittiriya Samhita and Vajasaneya Samhita, popularly known as Black and White Yajur respectively. The subject-matter of both the samhitas is almost the same, though the arrangement is somewhat different. Of the two the Vajasaneya Samhita is planned in a more systematic and orderly manner than the other. It also contains some texts which are not found in the Taittiriya Samhita. This translation of Yajurveda by Devi Chand is based upon Swami Dayanand's interpretation. The translator has provided references in the footnotes to the different views of other scholars. To bring home to the common man the message of the Yajurveda, he has spared no pains to remove all obscurities inherent in the old form of Sanskrit which was in vogue three thousand years ago. The introduction and the index are added to help the reader. Everyone interested in the Vedas will find this book indispensable. Printed Pages: 480. 035393
