While the texts on a particular art or a group of related arts, provide details of the principles of form and delineate intricacies of techniques, the foundations of these lie in the articulation of a worldview in the Vedas, the speculative thought of the Upani ads and the elaborate system of rites and rituals enumerated in the Brahma?as. The Ka??as Satapatha, Brahma?a is the only available Brahma?a related to Sukla Yajurveda. It has two recensions, namely Madhyandina and Ka?va. It is for the first time that a complete critical edition of the Satapatha Brahma?a of the Ka?va recension, along with its English translation, is published. This edition takes into account for the first time the readings available in a few more manuscripts, besides those in the published edition in Telugu script. It is also the first attempt at providing a complete English translation. No doubt, the texts of the Satapatha of the Madhyandina and Ka?va recensions do not differ much from Ka??as VIII to XVI and Prof. Eggling's translation of the former is available. Still a fresh attempt at translating the latter portion was felt necessary as a result of detailed discussions with traditional scholars who are actively engaged in Srauta sacrificial performances. The remaining text will be appearing soon in the volumes VII and VIII of this series along with glossary and indices.Printed Pages: 2394.
