As with the other Vedas, the redacted text has been handed down in several versions, most importantly the Padapatha, in which each word is isolated in pausa form and is used for just one way of memorization; and the Samhitapatha, which combines words according to the rules of sandhi (the process being described in the Pratisakhya) and is the memorized text used for recitation.The Padapatha and the Pratisakhya anchor the text's true meaning, In order to achieve this the oral tradition prescribed very structured enunciation, involving breaking down the Sanskrit compounds into stems and inflections, as well as certain permutations.Gay is here to help you make the Land of Smiles a yearly destination that is unforgettable!Welcome to The Z-Channel - KZRO-FM - Z100FM, broadcasting live 24/7 on 100.1FM to 24,000 square miles of Northern California, locally on 1570-AM, on you computer via Windows Media and MP4/aac Shoutcast, plus on Androids, i Phones, i Pads and Blackberry's from downtown Mount Shasta, CA USA....In all, 10 families of rishis account for more than 95% of the Rigveda (padapatha) manuscript in Devanagari, early 19th century.After a scribal benediction ("śrīgaṇéśāyanamaḥ ;; Aum(3) ;;"), the first line has the opening words of RV.1.1.1 (agniṃ ; iḷe ; puraḥ-hitaṃ ; yajñasya ; devaṃ ; ṛtvijaṃ).
