We express our happiness on the publication of Vedic Studies
(Journal of the School of Vedic Studies), Vol. V, 2010. This
volume contains the papers presented at the two-day National
Seminar on "Value System in the Veda and Upanisads"’, held
on February 27 and 28, 2008 under the auspices of Maharshi
Sandipani Rashtriya Vedavidya Pratisthan, Ujjain with the
assistance from the University Grants Commission. The object
of the seminar was to explore and emphasize those values
which foster universal peace and unity as well as harmony
and integrity of the nations on the broad basis of the codes of
conduct often laid down by the Sastras, especially the Vedas.
For a comprehensive idea about the proceedings of the seminar
Iearned readers may go through the article "Value System in
the Veda and Upanisads: An Overview".
Since some papers supposed to be sent by the respective
speakers after revision have not been received, we are
unfortunately unable to include them in this volume. Difficulty
has also been felt to follow uniform principles of editing due
to differences in style, diction, and method of writing of the
authors. Hence there has been an effort to retain individual
style as well as methodology to some extent. Bibliographical
details and references may be found incomplete in some cases.
Despite our best efforts a few printing mistakes might have
crept in, for which I sincerely regret.
I express my gratitude and thankfulness to Prof. Samiran
chandra Chakrabarti, Dr. Bhaskarnath Bhattacharyya and Dr.
Soma Basu for their valuable assistance rendered during
different stages of publication. I am also thankful to the project
assistants of the School for their services of reading the proof-
sheets. Sincere thanks are also due to M/S Service Princers
for their help and care in the matter of printing. Lastly, I
thankfully acknowledge the kind assistance and patronage of
the authorities of the concerned institutions regarding
organization of the said seminar and publication of this volume.
