Summary:

Volume XLVI of the Sacred Books of the East. This is the second volume in the 'Vedic Hymns' section of the Sacred Books of the East. While continuing the thread of Vedic linguistics which Max Müller started in the first Vedic Hymns volume, Oldenberg does not attempt to rise to the same level of analysis of the religious content of these Rig-veda hymns. In fact, at several points he states that he really has no idea what some passages in these hymns mean, simply attempting the best possible translation.
