This is the first published volume from the University of Spiritual Research's "Veda for the Masses" project.  Exhaustively researched by teams of scholars in India, and paired with the realizational wisdom of Swami Sri Atmananda's commentary, this book  dissects each mantra of the first sukta of the Rig Veda into samhitaapaathah, or continuous text; padapaathah (word-to-word text); Anvayah, or syntax; and Shabdaarthah, the meaning of each individual word; and notes the rishi, devata and chanda for each mantra.  

 

"Scriptures breathe.  They are living documents.  Although we give them names like Qur’an, Bible, Tripitaka and Gita, they are actually nameless, and speak a universal language in various dialects.  Scripture is the guide to harmonious living, and conveys the truth that has been verified through the lives of thousands of seers over the ages...

"In the beginning of this new cycle, I have humbly attempted to give a new interpretation of the age-old scripture, the Vedas.  This is a rational interpretation, neither ancient nor modern, that reflects the spirit of the time. It will help man to find his missing link with the scriptures...   This is an interpretation that brings out the inner meaning significance of the each mantra the way it was revealed to me.  The translations are not literal.  Each mantra is revealed in a simple format to benefit the common man."

[From the Introduction, by Swami Sri Atmananda]
