The present thesis is based entirely on original collected from printed works and Mss. on various branches of Vedic Literature, viz., Samhitas, Brahmanas, Aranyakas and Upanisads, and subsequent Literature such as the Sutras, Epics, Puranas, Smrtis, Prayogas and Paddha tis. Through-out my Thesis, I have tried to remove many misconceptions regarding the position of women during the Vedic Age, but in interpreting the texts and drawing conclusions from them, I have all along strictly adhered to the letter and spirit of the original Texts and their authoritative commentaries.
The author’s continued researches into the Position of Women in Sanskrit Literature have further confirmed his conclusions regarding the high position of Women in Ancient India. These researches have been published in seven volumes in the Series, “The Contribution of Women to Sanskrit Literature.” (also published by Cosmo)
This work was approved by the Board of Higher Sanskrit Studies, London University, on the recommendation of the veteran Sanskrit Scholar Dr. L. D. Barnett, Curator, Oriental Section, British Museum, under the title “The Position of Women in Vedic Age.” for the M.A. Degree of the University of London. With the promotion of the author to the Ph.D. Degree Course in coarse of a year, the subject was finally selected under the heading “The Position of Women in the Vedic Ritual” for the higher degree.
