Please note that the translations provided here are simplified interpretations and may not capture the complete depth of meaning contained in the original hymns.

Attributions are based on traditional beliefs and commentaries passed down through generations and may not have definitive historical evidence. The authorship and composition of the Rigvedic hymns are complex and multifaceted topics, and the exact identities cannot be pinned down. However, by having both linguistic analysis, commentaries passed down orally, and meanings and lineages of Rishis, we can tentatively give chronology.

The relative age between Rishi Grtsamada and Rishi Medhatithi Kanva is tough as no historical information is available, and the Rigveda itself does not provide specific details about the chronological order or the birthdates of the rishis.

According to traditional beliefs, Rishi Grtsamada and Rishi Medhatithi Kanva are associated with mythological lineages or genealogies with no historical or verifiable evidence.

Rishi Grtsamada is often described as belonging to the lineage of Angiras. He is considered to be a descendant of Sage Angiras and a member of the Angiras rishi family. The Angiras rishis are associated with the composition of several hymns in the Rigveda.
