The Vedanga ( vedga, "limbs of the Veda") are six auxiliary disciplines traditionally associated with the study and understanding of the Vedas.
Shiksha (ik): phonetics, phonology and morphophonology (sandhi)
Kalpa (kalpa): ritual
Vyakarana (vykaraa): grammar
Nirukta (nirukta): etymology
Chandas (chandas): meter
Jyotisha (jyotia): astronomy
Traditionally, vykaraa and nirukta are common to all four Vedas, while each veda has its own ik, chandas, kalpa and jyotia texts.
The Vedangas are first mentioned in the Mundaka Upanishad (at 1.1.5) as subjects for students of the Vedas. Later, they developed into independent disciplines, each with its own corpus of Sutras. It is not an orthodox.
