We are happy to present to our readers the translation of the 771 mantra-s of the 71 sukta-s (1.51 – 1.121) of the First Mandala.

The format of the translation is same as that in the translation of all other Rig Veda Mandala-s focusing on the four or more pada-s of each mantra individually.

We request our kind readers to see the following essays in “Rig Veda Samhita: Mandala One (Part One)”.

a) The uniqueness of this book (essay iii)

b) Foreword by Prof. S.K. Ramachandra Rao, (essay iv)

c) Spiritual Interpretation of Veda:An introduction      (essay v)

d) The Secret of the Veda in Aphorisms (essay vi)

e) Overview of Rig Veda (essay vii)

f) Yajna (essay xiv)

g) The sources of this translation (essay xv)

Regarding the methodology for assigning the meaning of the words appearing in the mantra-s, we refer the reader to the book, ‘Semantics of Rig Veda’ (SAKSHI).

The list in essay (v) groups the sukta-s by deity. Thus a reader who is interested in a particular deity like Agni can go directly to the relevant sukta-s.
