HISTORICAL INDIAN TEXT

Introduction :

This is an attempt to capture in one place the names of books and other works written in ancient India. For the purpose of this list, we consider all books written in India up to and including the Mughal era as being 'ancient books'.

This list is not comprehensive until it matches with the updated scientific facts. The original source is missing in the reference list. The listing of references should indicate two parts: 1. latest research on the books and facts 2. Original text book source, its digital format and its physical location for its verification of digital format.

Collections :

Each collection represents a set of books that are collectively known by the collection's name. In the list of books (shown below the table of collections), each book also refers to the collection it belongs to (if it does).

Note : The timeline can be slightly different than mentioned.


Name Description Alternate Names Date
Veds
Sacred hymns, which are a large body of texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrut, the texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrut literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. There are four Veds, and these constitute the Hindu canon (but they are largely religious scriptures, some telling it to be God's words). Each Ved has four subdivisions – the Samhitas (mantras and benedictions), the Aranyakas (text on rituals, ceremonies, sacrifices and symbolic-sacrifices), the Brahmanas (commentaries on rituals, ceremonies and sacrifices), and the Upanishads (texts discussing meditation, philosophy and spiritual knowledge).
Samhita 7000-500 BCE
Shakhas
Vedic school. Each school taught a Ved in a specific way, over time evolving specific styles and emphasis, based on how / by whom / where it was taught.
   
Brahmans
Commentary and elaboration on Veds and description of religious procedures.
  2000-800 BCE
Upanishads
Philosophy in response to Veds and Brahmanas. There are 108 Upnishads, among which 13 are considered the principal ones.
