Purusa-Sukta and Vedic Sacrifice

S K Ramachandra Rao (Author) Sri Garib Dass Oriental Series

The present volume focuses attention on the most popular of the Vedic hymns viz. Purusa Sukta. The idea of the Purusa has been explained in some detail and the enigmatic concept of Purusa Medha has also been considered in its proper perspective. It is hoped that by presenting this traditional interpretation many of the misconceptions will be removed. And as an Appendix has been given a detailed symbolic account of the Yajna prepared by an almost unknown scholar of the previous generation Srimusnam Narasimhacarya. This becomes relevant in the context of Yajna which is the central theme of Purusa Sukta. While this account may at first glance appear to be a modern reappraisal it accords well with the traditional approach of concentrating on the essentials.
