Summary: In the Rg-Veda the word asura - is frequently used as an epithet for various deities. However, in later Sanskrit it is used instead for a class of demons who are enemies of the gods.

Description: In this book the Vedic passages containing the word asura - are examined to see how such a remarkable shift in meaning could occur. Every verse in the Samhitas containing the word asura - or a derivative or a compound of it is quoted, translated, and discussed.
