Sama Veda
 
 
The Sama-veda, the “Veda of Melodies,” contains verses meant to be used as songs in various ceremonies, primarily for the udgata priest. Most of them are taken from the Rig-veda and arranged according to their use as utilized in particular rituals. From the original 1000 branches of the Sama-veda, three are still available, of which the Kauthumiya and Jaiminiya are prominent..
 
Samaveda is the third of the collections of Vedic mantras. It has 1875 mantras or verses, each of which has a specific metre. The texts of most of these verses are in the Rigveda Samhita which has 10,552 verses, i.e., the text of each mantra of Samaveda is identical to the text of some mantra of Rigveda Samhita, but the corresponding mantras of the two Samhitas differ in their notation for intonation.
 
Samaveda is the earliest known systematic procedure for giving a melody to a chanted verse. Most persons who have heard with devotion the singing of Samaveda verses will attest to the sense of exhilaration or ecstasy experienced by them. It is no wonder that the famous epic poem Bhagavad Gita in the epic Mahabharata declares that the Samaveda is the best among the four Vedas. Each Sama vedic mantra contains in it not only the deep meaning of the counter part of Rig vedic mantra but also has the added dimension of music. Samaveda is the foundation for all systems of music in the subcontinent of India.
