Vedic Economy।।Economic Life in the Vedic Age।।Created by PAATH History


Created for History Honours students.
Welcome to PAATH History….
As might be expected without cities, the early Aryans did not have an advanced technology. But they certainly enjoyed an advantageous position in relation to their adversaries. The Aryans came to India as semi-nomadic people with a mixed pastoral and agricultural economy in which cattle-rearing played a predominant role. However, the frequency of usage in religious or ritualistic texts and contexts may not be an accurate indicator of the relative importance of these activities in everyday life. Apart from word frequencies, it is necessary to examine the nature and content of the references. Great changes occurred in the Aryan mode of life during the later Vedic age, extending from 1000-600 BCE when the three Vedas, Yajur, Sama and Atharva, the Brahmanas and a few early Upanishadas were composed. In this video all these changes are discussed.
