By Swami Harshananda
Sometimes transliterated as: Caturvedasvami, CaturvedasvAmi, Caturvedasvaami
Caturvedasvāmi literally means ‘master of the four Vedas’.
Out of the several commentators on the Ṛgveda, some like Sāyaṇa are well- known. Among the lesser known ones is Caturvedasvāmi. He lived at the end of the 15th cent. A.D. Suryapaṇḍita, who wrote a commentary on the Līlāvatī of Bhāskara (12th cent. A.D.) was his disciple.
Caturvedasvāmi's explanations of ṛks have been considered as rather odd since he often connects them to the epic personalities like the Pāṇḍavas.
