Who were Dasas/Dasyus?
Dasas/Dasyus were a group of people who were different from Aryans (people who composed hymns). They also spoke a different language. Most of the dasas were enslaved and so the term 'dasa' (and the feminine dasi) came to mean slave. These were women and men who were often captured in war and were treated as the property of their owners. They had to do whatever work was given to them by their masters.
