I am aware of Griffith's translation. But I am not very satisfied with that. Is there any other translation available?

    Max Mueller also did a translation. You can google his name to find. Jan 29, 2018 at 6:03

    It's always better to read translations of Indian Authors rather than in English by foreign authors.

  • Yes, that is why I think Tulsi Ram's translation from Arya Samaj is very important. But the problem is I am not able to find Tulsi Ram's translation of Rig Veda and Atharva Veda! Jan 29, 2018 at 7:17
  • Max Mueller RigVeda Samhitha is available in several state libraries.

  • The OP is already aware of Griffith's translation. And want the other ones. Jan 29, 2018 at 7:37

I have found a few links!

Rig Veda:

Rig Veda Samhita by Max Muller Thanks to Swami Vishwananda for this link!

One of the best translation along with detailed commentary. The Rigveda: 3-Volume Set by Stephanie W. Jamison and Joel P. Brereton

Yajur Veda: This pdf file has watermarks. Yajur Veda English translated by Dr Tulsi Ram. Arya Samaj e library

Sama Veda: This pdf file has watermarks. Sama Veda English translated by Dr Tulsi Ram. Arya Samaj e library

Atharva Veda: translated by Dr Tulsi Ram


All volumes of four Vedas - The best collection:

To get the English translation of all 4 Vedas by Dr Tulsi Ram, please go to the following link. Dr Tulsi Ram's translation is the best. By the way, the filenames are in Bengali, but the books are in English! So do not get confused.


These pdf files have an annoying yellow background colour. However, with any pdf editor (for example, PDF XChange editor) you can easily remove all background colour and can get pure white background! Otherwise, file qualities are excellent. Files are small and they do not have any watermark. Most importantly files are not protected, which means you can annotate these pdf files easily!
