sāmaveda ‘The Veda of the Sāman chants,’ is the name of a collection of verses for chanting, often mentioned in the Brāhmaṇas. The Sāman itself is repeatedly referred to in the Rigveda, and the triad Rc, Yajus, and Sāman is common from the Atharvaveda onwards. These texts know also the Sāma-ga, the ‘Sāman-chanter,’ who occurs later.
