I was listening to this beautiful video


I found these parts :

1) Gananam Tva Ganapatim - from Rig Veda (2.23.1)

2) After that become :

praNo devee saraswatee vaajebhirvaajineevatee | dheenaamavitryavatu || 4 ||

wich i found in II saraswatee sooktam (rigveda samhitaa)

Then the video finish with part 5/11 (what i am interested into)


After the saraswatee sooktam , what is the text chanted in part 5/11?

Thank you in advance for help

Also , someone can translate in english :

praNo devee saraswatee vaajebhirvaajineevatee | dheenaamavitryavatu || 4 ||

  • Thank you, i tried already to search the text of Suresha Paddhati but i didn’t found it. So i extracted the first two parts as wrote above. (basecally saraswatee sooktam ends exactly at the end of the 4/11 video. )So after that starts another part as you can see in the 5/11 video. My question was to find and extract these parts of this last video. ( and possible the translation) because i don’t know what is the meaning of the saraswatee sooktam verse above. I am studying but i would like to understand the sansckrit. For example, the first part of Gananam Tva Ganapatim was easy to find on web. Commented Sep 24, 2019 at 16:15

It was mentioned in the description part of the video

It is a form of Vedic jugalbandi called Suresha Paddhati. It is a method of reciting Samhita and other Vikrutis, like Ghana Patha from more than 1 Veda. In this case Rig Veda and Krishna Yajur Veda are recited immediately and simultaneously, to highlight the difference in svara, pada, the place of its occurrences and the sandhi and grammar rules of the respective Vedas. It also seems that there is a verbal competition between the Vedas that are recited.

Rig Veda 6.61.4 provides this Mantra.

pra ṇo devī sarasvatī vājebhirvājinīvatī | dhīnāmavitryavatu ||

May the divine Sarasvatī, rich in her wealth, protect us well, Furthering all our thoughts with might

  • Thank you!! That solved the first part😉 Commented Sep 24, 2019 at 17:28
