Sree Sukta is generally believed as one of the oldest sukta from some of the lost recession of R.V. ; the sakala recession of R.V. do not have this sukta, but add them as a khila (a supplement to the text). Shree Sukta is found at the end of the fifth mandala and before the commencement of the sixth mandala of rig Veda.
