Vedic period

‘Ved’ means ‘know’ The word ‘Veda’ means the holy knowledge contained in the Vedic period known as the Vedic literature. The entire grant havable of Vedic literature comprises two types of books. These are-‘Mantra ‘and’ Brahmins’. The grant hawala of the Mantra category is the main grant Haveli of Vedic texts, in which four section texts are included – Rigveda, Samaveda, Yajurveda and Atharva Veda. Do not forget to consider Brahmanical texts as a Brahminical class. Actually, there are texts written in prose, in which there are extensions of the definitions of mantras, in which there is also a ritualistic ritual. The literature available in the four Vedas, including Brahmin, is called ‘Shruti’, which was heard directly from the Rishis in a Vedic period. Aaranyak (literally meaning Jungle Treaty Letter) and ‘Upanishad’ (sitting down nearby) are primarily an appendix of Brahmanic texts. They are also called Vedanta (the end of the Vedas) and they contain philosophical discussions.
‘Rig Veda’ is a compilation of 1028 chants, which has been divided into 10 congregations. These are early compositions, so they mention the early life of the Vedic period people of India. ‘Samveda’ is a compilation of poetry positions, which are mostly taken from Rigveda-and they have been a poetic form so that they can be sung. Yajurveda is found in two forms, Shyam (Black) and Shukla (white) and there is a description of rituals performed in public and personal form. ‘Atharva Veda’ is a collection of magical mechanisms and mantras, which were used to exterminate the demons and treat the diseases. The intensive study of Vedic literature shows that Vedic literature gives information about the gradual development of two phases of social and cultural development through literary sources. The ‘Rigveda’, which is the oldest text, gives information about one phase of social and cultural development, then the other three Vedas give information about the progress of the second phase. The first phase is called Rig Vedic period or early Vedic period, and the posterior phase is called Vedic period early Vedic period and later Vedic period ). The Early Vedic period composition of Rigvedic Mantras Is the age of. 1500 BC To 1000 B.C. The period of this period has been kept in this period. Uttar or Later Vedic period dated 1000 B.C. To 600 B.C. Has been accepted. Recently, ‘Rig Veda’ has been included in the World Human Heritage Literature by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
The Aryans originally lived in the Meadows (steppes) from southern Russia to central Asia. From here a group of Aryans entered the northwest of India and they were called by Indo-Aryan or by the name of Aryans only. From here, these people moved towards the north of Hindukush (which was called the Bactria Marjiana Archaeological Complex) and from there they entered India. In this period i.e. 1900 BC 1500 BC During these areas we have found evidence of horses, age wheels, fire worship and cremation, and all these things later became the main part of the life of Aryans in India. In addition to this, there are indications from the remains of clay pots and pottery that people migrated from Central Asia to Southern Asian regions. But some scholars still argue on this argument that Aryans were indigenous people of India and did not come to India from any outer place.
The ancient Aryans used to live in the area known as ‘Sapta-Indus’, which means the seven rivers area. This area is spread mainly from the north-western region of South Asia to the Yamuna river. Seven rivers include Indus, Dastaasta (Jhelum), Asikini (Chenab), Parushnani (Ravi), Vipasha (Vyas), Shutradri (Sutlej) and Saraswati. In this area, people of Rigvedic period resided, fought war, made flocks of animals and other animals, made domestic animals domestic animals. Moving slowly towards the east direction, he reached Uttar Pradesh (Skill) and Bihar (Videha) in the North Vedic period. When he came here, he came in contact with people who spoke different languages from him and had lived in this area for a very long time.
The ancient Vedic period Aryan people were cattle-eaters. Animal Husbandry was their main occupation. They used to feed the cow, buffalo, sheep, goats, and horses to get milk, flesh, and leather. Many words came from the word ‘Gao’, which means the cow. The rich man was called ‘Gomat’ and the daughter
‘Dushrhat’ which means, who milk the cow’s milk. The word ‘exploration’ literally means searching for cows, but the meaning of this word is also a fight because too many battles were fought because of animals. The cows were considered to be the whole of their desires. Prayers were made to increase the number of animals. The references mentioned above, as well as many other contexts, indicate that domestic animal husbandry was the most important economic activity for the Rigvedic period‘s Aryans. In addition to farming and farming at the small-scale farming, he used to do many other economic activities. There were some other things like hunting, carpentry, dyeing, knitting of clothes, making chariot and necklaces of metal, etc., which they used to do. They used to manufacture goods made by these works for the exchange of commodities. But, the most preferred medium of the commodity was the cows. After the rituals of sacrificial offerings, Brahmin priests used to meet cows, horses and gold jewelry charges.
In the northern and eastern parts of India, there was more rainfall from the north-western parts of India, where later the Aryans were transferred. As a result of the rain, this area was full of dense forests, which could not be eliminated by copper or stone tools used by people of the Rig Vedic period. Iron tools have been very helpful in wiping out heavy rain forests, especially large stumps of surviving trees after the burn, in the shortest possible time, in the short-lived areas, Could have been converted into Thick soil could be plowed with an iron solution to make the land fertile. There is a possibility that this process had started in Uttar Pradesh during the Rig Vedic period, but the evidence of the effects of the use of tools made of iron and equipment was known only in the last phase of the North Vedic period.
Father was the main society and was the tradition of marriage. There was a wife religion, but the nobility sometimes kept many wives. Marriages were only on adulthood and after marriage, the wife used to go to her husband’s house. The family was part of a large group, which was called ‘VIS’ or ‘Dynasty’. The group of more than one tribe was called ‘Jan’ or ‘Castle’. ‘Jan’ was the biggest social entity. People of one line were associated with mutual blood relations. The basis of becoming a member of a caste was to take birth in that case.
Generally, there was a ‘feudal society’. There was no ethnic classification in it. Businesses were not based on birth, but different members of the family could do different business.
These people kept flocks of animals and spread from all parts of southern Russia and spread all over the groups. Many such groups of people entered India through different routes from Afghanistan. Their language, which was called the Indo-Aryan or Sanskrit, was the predominant language taking the words from the local languages. His oldest composition was ‘Rigveda’ and after this many types of literary works were written. Initially, the Aryans used to live in seven rivers ‘Sapta Sindhu’, which extends in today’s Punjab and Haryana regions. After that, they proceeded towards the flow of the Ganges, Yamuna, Saryu, Ghaghra and Gandak rivers, which emerge from today’s Eastern Uttar Pradesh and modern territories of western Bihar. In the early Vedic period, from the egalitarian, tribal socio-political system till the last period of the Vedic period, the social system divided into letters was established on the basis of regionalism in the Aryans. Tribal Chiefs had inherited the status of the tribe and the government personnel took possession of the role of popular meetings and committees. The increasing number of sacrifices reveals the importance of kings and women. In the same way, in the beginning of the civilization initiative, there was a lot of significant space, now it was important to take care of their importance, and their place had taken new gods. As a result of all these changes, ‘districts’ and ‘Mahajanapadas’ were born, in the sixth century BC, in the first half.
