About the Book :
The Grihya-sutras form that branch of the Vedic literature which deals with the domestic rites of the Vedic Aryans.

The Gobhilagrhyasutra belongs to the Samaveda and it is one of the most important Grihya-sutras. It is presented here along with the commentary of Bhattanarayana. This edition is indispensable for every Vedic scholar and for the priests adhering to the Gobhilagrhyasutra.
