This Tradition was and is transmitted through the medium of the Sanskrit Language and was the sole franchise of the Brahmins. This tradition has been more effectively presented to the people through the medium of folk ballads and legends, which combine history with mythology.
The Veda is the wisdom which provides the background for Dharma — the way of life. It is important to recognise that when we speak of the Vedic foundation of Indian culture, it is this ancient and persistent holistic tradition that is referred to. This tradition, which is oral and very much germane to the lives of the people in India, goes back to a period prior to the composition of the actual texts known as the Vedas, and is also much wider in scope than the texts themselves.
It provides direction to our actions, framework for the values we must adopt and nurture, and goals to be achieved within the limits set by the society. These are all those texts which do not contain mantras. And subsequently there was a clear-cut parting of the ways; those who advocated the ritualistic portion of the Vedas viz. He not only redefined the Veda but altered also the priorities. This is precisely what the Veda is about, and the purpose served by the Veda is knowledge concerning such means.
But the framework thus provided for the Veda obviously does not suit the nature and content of Rig Veda the mantra portion. But he does not go near the fire or offer oblations himself. Brahma is the fourth priest who is the master of ceremonies, and who only supervises and guides when occasion demands; he must be proficient in all the three Vedas or according to some authorities he must be a specialist in Atharva-Veda.
The foremost among the priests, therefore, is the adhvaryu, who is directly and intimately concerned with the sacrificial ritual. This importance is derived from the Veda that he specialises, viz. They therefore set out to expatiate on the different aspects of Vedic knowledge in so far as they pertain to sacrifices. The division known as Kalpa is so called because it seeks to justify the performance of sacrificial rites mentioned in the Vedas.
Nirukta deals with etymological derivation of Vedic words. Chhandas are the rules of prosody and hymnal compositions and are not directly concerned with sacrifices.
It suggests the role of divinity not only in human affairs but in the very creation of the world. It is an expedient invented by the gods themselves for projecting all things and beings in the world, and adopted by human beings for securing their wealth and welfare. And it is not merely a rite; it is also an attitude, a resolve, a device, an initiation, an instrument and an act.
It involves the whole being of the person who is engaged in the act, and transforms his psycho-physical form into a vehicle of divinity. The concept of sacrifice is based upon self-sacrifice; giving oneself up, but for purposes of more effective re-generation.
