The Rig Veda Summary ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF review È eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Õ Wendy Doniger Read The Rig Veda The earliest of the four Hindu religious scriptures known as the Vedas and the first extensive composition to survive in any Indo European language the Rig Veda is a collection of over 1000 individual Sanskrit hymns A work of intri. The Rig Veda is a must read book for anyone who is researching the origins of religion or the origins of man For people who read things in their simplest form I do not recommend this or any religious text as it will be pointless and you will derive nothing from it For those who can explore a book it it s most literal descriptive metaphoric way I recommend this book and all religious texts as a path to the past but not as a guide for the future or present time
