Okay, so I'm not a Vedic scholar (duh!) so I don't know if everything on here is correct, though with many of these things (hymns, the Vedas themselves, etc) there are many meanings, interpretations and such.

I found this site to be quite interesting and full of info about the Vedic hymns and deities.

http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/overview.html

I actually think I saw it long ago, but for whatever reason didn't pay much attention to it.

Oh and a note: It has this annoying pop-up warning saying the site is better viewed in Internet Explorer. I have Firefox so I keep seeing it when I open every page there. So either ignore it (I just click the X box) or have IE to view the site and bypass that!

So, what I was looking at...each of these has their own chapters as well, so it's really a lot of text! I've got tons to read now!
:reading:

Rig Veda (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/rig_veda/toc.html)-- these are the main books in there, each with their own stuff:
Wisdom of Veda (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/rig_veda/wisdom_veda/toc.html)
Explaining the Gods (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/rig_veda/explaining_gods/toc.html)
Gods of the Veda (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/rig_veda/gods_of_veda/toc.html)
Word to word meaning (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/rig_veda/word_meaning/toc.html)
Yajur Veda (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/yajur_veda/toc.html)
Sama Veda (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/sama_veda/toc.html)
Atharva Veda (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/atharva_veda/toc.html)
Upanishads (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/upanishads/toc.html)
Deeper Meaning (http://www.vedah.com/org2/literature/deeper_meaning/toc.html)And a few others categories.
Oh and they offer the text for free PDF downloads, too.

So, I guess any one interested in Vedic literature (the hymns, meaning, etc) and/or the Vedic gods, this place seems to be great for that. Though, like I said, I don't know if it's 100% accurate, similar or different to any of the previous Vedic scholarship. Seeing as I've been looking everywhere (off and on & again lately) for texts and things related to Surya and some other Vedic deities...I'm pretty interested in what they have to say!

Thanks for the links, as Vedicism is something I'd really like to learn more about.
