Paippalada-samhita of the Atharva-veda: book 1-20, ed. by Raghuvira, with a conspectus of Saunaka and Paippalada verse-index, foreword in English by Lokesh Chandra
Paippalada-Sanhita was once the premier recension of the Atharvavedan and was more prevalent than the Saunaka recension as the most authoritative version. The sage Atharvan instituted the worship of fire (athar`fire') and he is the author of the Atharvaveda. He is the earliest teacher of the Brahmavidya. In course of time the Atharaveda had several recensions. The Sage Paippalada redacted them into nine recensions. Out of the nine, only two have survived: Saunka (populary known as the Atharva-Veda) and Paippalada. Paippalada preserves the older tradition and has better readings. Panini and Patanjali quote from this recension.
