Hinduism - What Are The Vedanga?

 


("A Vedic [subsidiary] member") Six types of writings considered supplementary to the Vedas since they were created to make their usage easier.

These six were shiksha (correct articulation and pronunciation), metrical forms (chandas), Sanskrit grammar (vyakarana), etymological explanations of archaic terms (nirukta), establishing astrologically acceptable sacrificial periods (jyotisha), and ritual and ceremonial guidelines (kalpa).
