Another shakha that may have survived is the Bāṣkala, although this is uncertain.

while the metrical text of van Nooten and Holland (1994) has a total of 395,563 syllables (or an average of 9.93 syllables per pada); counting the number of syllables is not straightforward because of issues with sandhi and the post-Rigvedic pronunciation of syllables like súvar as svàr.

The initial codification of the Rigveda took place during the early Kuru kingdom (c. length of hymns per book) and account for 38% of the text.

Some of its verses continue to be recited during Hindu rites of passage celebrations such as weddings and religious prayers, making it probably the world's oldest religious text in continued use.
