Sanskrit Manuscripts : Ṛgvedānukramaṇikā, Anuvākānukramaṇī

Sanskrit Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A multi-text manuscript containing Kātyāyana's <i>Ṛgvedānukramaṇikā</i> and Śaunaka's <i>Anuvākānukramaṇī</i>. The <i>Ṛgvedānukramaṇikā</i> of Kātyāyana is "a well-known general index to the <i>Ṛgveda</i>. It epitomises in the Sūtra style the contents of the metrical indexes"(Parameswara Aithal 1991: 216). The <i>Anuvākānukramaṇī</i> of Śaunaka is "a short index containing about 40 verses. It states the initial verse of each of the 85 Anuvāka-s of the <i>Ṛgveda</i> and the number of hymns contained in each Anuvāka. It also contains at the end some statistical details such as the total number of hymns (1017), verses (10,580 and half), words (153,826), syllables (432,000)."(Parameswara Aithal 1991: 90). The version in this manuscript is slightly different from the one found in Chandra Sharma's edition (1977: 43-47; for instance, the first 3 verses are missing). </p>
