Khilani - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Khilani
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Khilani are a collection of 98 "apocryphal" hymns of the Rigveda, recorded in the Bāṣkala, but not in the Śākala shakha. They are late additions to the text of the Rigveda, but still belong to the "Mantra" period of Vedic Sanskrit.
