॥ अथर्ववेदीयसङ्कल्पसूक्तं ॥

अथर्ववेदीय ब्रह्मणो मे किसी भी माङ्गलिक कार्य के आरम्भ मे सङ्कल्प लेने से पूर्व संकल्प सूक्त का पाठ किया जाता हैं । संकल्पसूक्त अथर्ववेदसंहिता में प्राप्त नहीं होता हैं अपितु यह कल्पजा हैं अर्थात् यह अब लुप्त कल्पसूत्र में से संग्रहित हैं ।

॥ सङ्कल्पसुक्तम् ॥

ॐ यद् देवानां देवहेडो वयांसि, मित्रस्य त्वा पुरयेताद् बृहस्पति: । प्रजां पशुन् ब्रह्मणा ब्रह्मसोमं , तन्मे मन: शिवसंङ्कल्पमस्तु ॥१॥
ॐ येनाऽङ्गिरसो ज्योतिषि धारयन्त:, प्रतिष्ठावान् वितथे सुधिरा: । येऽथर्वाण: सर्वमोतप्रोत प्रजानन् , तन्मे मन: शिवसंङ्कल्पमस्तु ॥ २॥
ॐ येनेदं भूतं भुवनं भविष्यथ , परिगृहितमन्तेन सर्वम् । येन यज्ञ: शास्त्रा य ते सप्तहोता , तन्मे मन: शिवसंङ्कल्पमस्तु ॥३॥
ॐ संकल्पितेऽस्मिन् कर्माणि सिद्धिरस्तु॥

॥ अथर्वणसाम ॥

अथर्वण परम्परा में आदिम मन्त्र शन्नो देवी मन्त्र के साम का गायन विशेष आथर्वणिक कर्मकाण्डों में किया जाता हैं । इस साम के ऋषि अथर्वा , छन्द गायत्री तथा आपो देवता हैं । अथर्वणसाम की आधारभूत सामयोनि अथर्ववेद का प्रथम मन्त्र “ॐ शं नो॑ दे॒वीर॒भिष्ट॑य॒ आपो॑ भवन्तु पी॒तये॑ । शं योर॒भि स्र॑वन्तु नः ॥हैं।

A list of some lost brAhmans.

From the infinite time our vedic tradition considered the brAhmans granThas as veda . All maharshis of our glorious tradition declared ” mantrabrAhmanyOvedAnAmadheya ” and ” mantrabrAhmanaM veda ityAchakshatE “. Even in modern time excluding indologists and  follower of dayAnanda saraswatI , for all adherents of vedic tradition brAhmans too are veda. Here I’m writing a short list ( vedA wise ) of some lost brAhmans, . This list is traditional at all  and uncritical from indologist point of view. This list of lost brAhmans is based on the quotations quoted from this brahmans in commentaries ( bhAshya )  on several vedic texts. Also I have included brAhmans granThas which were mentioned in vedic texts , shrauta sutras , grihya sutras and bhAshyas . Although our glorious tradition had 1000s of brAhmans but most of them are lost , this list covers names of those brAhmans which are mentioned or quoted. Defiantly many fragments of this brAhmans  are still available  and some are published like kAthaka samkalana ( A collection of fragments of kAThaka brAhmans ).
