Jump to navigation Jump to search

Introduction[edit]

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.[1] 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[edit]

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).

Name Description Alternate Names Date
Vedas Sacred hymns, which are a large body of texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrit, the texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. There are four Vedas, and these constitute the Hindu canon (but they are largely religious scriptures, some telling it to be God's words). Each Veda 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 1500-500 BCE[2]
Shakhas Vedic school. Each school taught a Veda in a specific way, over time evolving specific styles and emphasis, based on how / by whom / where it was taught.
Brahmanas Commentary and elaboration on vedas and description of religious procedures. 1000-800 BCE[3]
Upanishads Philosophy in response to Vedas and Brahmanas. There are 108 Upnishads, among which 13 are considered the principal ones. 800-600 BCE[4]
Vedanta Later commentary on the Vedas, Brahmanas and Upanishads.
Itihasas Ramayana and Mahabharata are known as the itihasas (‘thus it happened’).
Pali Canon Essential collections of teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, as written by his followers, three centuries later. Tipitaka
Puranas Historic texts (usually about a royal lineage) - written by court-appointed historians. Usually contrasted with historical descriptions in vedas, brahmanas, etc., that are written by priests.
Dharmasastra Collection and description of laws (man-made and natural).
Sangam literature Collection of texts on ethics, polity, love, and ancient lifestyle of Indian. 300 BCE - 250 CE
