Excerpt from Magadhan Literature: Being a Course of Six Lectures Delivered at Patna University in December, 1920, and April, 1921 The activity was not confined to the six angas of the Vedas but it spread over various other branches of know ledge, such as Medicine, economics, politics, history, philosophy, science, dramaturgy and even erotics. The aphoristic style at last proved to be to.) terse and too enigmatic and some of the writers began to give their own comments to elucidate the aphorisms, and then they hit upon the plan of writing long metrical works to make the subjects more attractive and easier to commit to memory - athe only method of imparting and rcceiving instructions in those days - and easier to apply them to practical purposes of life. Max Muller thinks that the long versified works in Sloka metre came into existence at the close of the sutra period about 200 B. C But Biihler has shown that they existed some centuries earlier.
