The Law try of the Veda is mythical. Says Yaska in Nirukta 10.10.2 that a poet of vision has love for mythification (risherdrisht-aarthasya priitirbhavatyaakhyaanasamyuktaa). The tradition says that the seers visualized the eternal sustaining principles or forces of life through their seeric vision. They designed a poetic world where the mythical figures symbolising the basic, fundamental and eternal principles were presented as working in harmony, and the design seemed to be true at various levels of meaning. The theologian moulded his rites, the preacher sought his belief, the philosopher found the clues for his speculation and the Law makers worked out the social and political life styles—all in accordance with the archetypal truths of the Samhitas. This Book reviews the mood and the style of the Vedic mythopoetry and how it reflects the conceptual idea of some aspects of myth and poetry as well as the archetypes that became fundamental to the Religion of not only the Vedic but also the post-Vedic eras of Indian cultural history.Printed Pages: 174.
