Abstract

India’s oldest written works are the Vedas. To assist their proper study, there are six ancillary texts, called Vedāṅgas (“limbs of the veda”), namely Śikṣā (Phonetics), Kalpa (Ritualistics), Vyākaraṇa (Grammar), Nirukta (Etymology), Chandas (Prosody) and Jyotiṣa (Astronomy and Astrology).
