It is STRONGLY recommended that you review the introduction to this text as it explains key issues of coding, accent, and access. You can also access the RV according to hymns cited by the Shatapatha. Also, long vowels are rendered as double letters, with accent via ' markings over the appropriate letter. Font constraints require that vocalic R remain a capital, with : for length, and the original ! for accent. Especially note considerations of accent in the ZB, which differs from that of the RV (in the HOS diacritic versions marked as udaatta from Aufrecht, with " ' " or " ` ").
I have listed each section of the Shatapatha by individual brAhmaNa with the individual subsections to be numbered later. There are shortcuts to each of the 14 kaaNDa's. Each section, where applicable, is linked to the RV maNDala upon which it is based (via usage in the Vajasaneyi Samhita in close approximation), or which it specifically repeats verbatim. Additions/corrections please send to:
Please review the introduction to this linked section as the process of linking itself yields questions for new perspectives on the intertextuality of the Old and Middle Vedic Canon. In particular, please note the amazing foresight of Robert Lehmann and Dr. H. S. Ananthanarayana for their visionary encoding of this text in 1971. With the virtual lightyears of technological transformations in subsequent 25 years, their scheme of encoding remains efficient, intuitive--and technically adaptible to any platform with virtually no limitations.
The material linked to and from the Rig Veda is based on the combined notes of Eggeling's SBE series translation, and the notes by Griffith in his VS edition. Those sections with such links have an "*" by the citation below.
More detailed referencing, of course, can be found in Bloomfield's Vedic Concordance . This ZB text, like the related RV text, will be linked according to the words under study for my dissertation as noted elsewhere. The index below is divided into two pages identical to the present page for quicker loading/access.
