Ancient Sanskrit

We have a complete edition of the metrically restored text of the entire Rigveda here. Below we provide specific selections from the Rigveda together with translations.

Note: there are great disparities in capability among personal computers in contemporary use. Unfortunately, support for Unicode® and/or the repertoire of fonts installed on your personal computer cannot be detected by a web server! Accordingly, we have prepared multiple versions of each text; this set of texts is for systems/browsers with Unicode support and fonts spanning the Unicode 3 character set relevant to (Romanized) Sanskrit. (You may switch to other versions via links below.) Texts:

  1. Rigveda I, 98
  2. Rigveda IV, 53, 1-6
  3. Rigveda III, 33, 4-8
  4. Rigveda VII, 81
  5. Rigveda VIII, 18, 4-12
