Students study the RV (here the first hymn to Agni 'Fire') in Barsi, Maharashtra, in the Shri Yogiraj Vedavigyan Ashram. The setting is somewhat formal, with the students introducing themselves first to the teacher before the actual repetition starts. The continuous text (samhita) is here learned and repeated paadashah 'foot by foot', the sandhi between the paadas is resolved. Intended public: students in Indology, Indian Studies, Ritual Studies, History of Education. With thanks to Pdt. Dixit Vijay N. Manerikar and students and to the staff of the Shri Yogiraj Vedavigyan Ashram, Barsi. Filmed by Jan Houben, February 2002.
