A special feature of this Kanda 20 of AV is almost all of its mantra-s appear in the Rig Veda Samhita, almost vebatim. Thus in preparing this translation, we have freely used the translation of the Rig Veda mantra-s of all the 10 Mandala-s published by SAKSHI in twelve volumes [12]. To do this task, we had to first identify the exact Rig Veda mantra which matches each Atharva Veda mantra. The existing commentaries such as that of Sayana or translations done by indologists like  Whitney have not attempted this concordance. It has been an uphill task, but has rendered our translation task very easy.
