MYTHOLOGY: ANCIENT INDIA
Many are the Gods and Goddesses that compose the Ancient Vedic Pantheon described in the VEDAS, the four primary texts of Hinduism, having a vast influence on Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism.
They are the most extensive texts in the Indo-European language, and as such are invaluable in the study of comparative linguistics. They are named as follows:
1) RIG VEDA: The Book of Mantra
2) SAMA VEDA: The Book of Song
3) YAJUR VEDA: The Book of Ritual
4) ATHARVA VEDA: The Book of Spell
The VEDAS contain hymns, incantations, and rituals from ancient India. Not only do they have enormous spiritual value but also a cultural value because they give a unique view of the everyday life in India four thousand years ago.
