After P.E. Dumont Baltimore 1939 had presented a survey of the description of the Agnihotra ritual as found in the ritualistic sutras, this book originally published in 1976 offered a systematic treatment of the esoteric interpretations of this ritual as found in the Vedic prose texts including the relevant sections of the Yajurvedic Samhitas.

The Agnihotra formed the starting point for several important doctrines which were further developed in later texts. Apart from its ritualistic relevance it is therefore also of great importance for the early history of ideas in India.

The systematic arrangement of the sections translated here increases our knowledge about the network of parallel Vedic texts, their borrowings and relative chronology.
