Quantity:

In the first edition of this work, Dr. N.N. Bhattacharyya holds that the beliefs and ideals of different civilizations are formulated in their rituals more explicitly than in any other cultural trait which gives the study of ritualism a greater historical significance. For this reason the study of rituals should not be restricted to classifying their contents only. While their geographical and historical distribution should be delineated, it is equally necessary to take into account their basic purpose. This would help reveal the actual social set-up in which they were originally evolved. In this revised and enlarged edition, the author has demonstrated that all Indian rituals--ancient, medieval or modern--are based on certain well-defined principles which are again interrelated to each other. He has tried to discover these principles after a careful analysis of the ingredients of various rituals. The formulations made in the earlier edition have been critically reexamined and the basic conclusions substantiated by fresh evidence from a variety of sources.
