ISBN : 81-7994-057-8

This book has the translation of all the 765 mantras in the 75 Suktas of the Sixth Mandala of Rig Veda along with the text and some explanation. As in our earlier SAKSHI publications, the focus is on the wisdom in the Veda conveyed by the spiritual/psychological meanings of the mantras. The primary aim of our book is to make the translation understandable to lovers of Veda in all walks of life, not necessarily academics or the experts in English language.

Those readers who do not know Sanskrit can skip the footnotes in Devanagari script and read only the main body of text in English. Those who are interested in chanting or in understanding the meaning of words should read the footnotes and the related information about the word-meanings in the text.
