The Pura?a literature gives ample information about the existence of Sakha-Sa?hitas. Deviations in text, order and number of ?k mantras started giving rise to different Sakha-Sa?hitas from the time of Acarya Paila; Patañjali referring to twenty one Sakha-Sa?hitas of the ?gveda. This publication is an attempt to examine the existence of Sakha-Sa?hitas of the ?gveda as mentioned by the Pura?as, Patañjali, Mahidasa and other authorities, scrutinizing textual evidence in support of them. The focus is, however, on the Asvalayana-Sa?hita, with a background on Acarya Asvalayana and exploring the antiquity, treatment of accent and Padapa?ha of the text by referring to various sources. Published in two volumes it presents a detailed and systematic study of the full text of the Asvalayana-Sa?hita of the ?gveda.
