Dear Matthew,

In terms of breadth, I think the Vishva Bandhu concordance remains the most
complete (Vishva Bandhu, Bhim Dev, S. Bhaskaran Nair (eds.),
A Vedic Word-Concordance*, Vishveshvaranand Vedic Research Institute,
Hoshiarpur, 1963–1965.) But there are text specific concordances (like the
one of the RV by Lubotsky) which are more recent and easy to navigate.
