The Asvamedha - The Rite and it's Logic

by Subhash Kak

No customer reviews yet. ( Be the first )
$12.99 $9.74

Quantity:

This book describes the Asvamedha rite and its symbolism to explain distinctive aspects of the Vedic sacrifice system. Several questions related to the Asvamedha are posed and answered in the context of Vedic epistemology. This rite has three important functions: (i) it presents and equivalence of the naksatra year to the heaven, implying that it is rite that celebrates the rebirth of the Sun; (ii) it is symbolic of the conquest of Time by the king, in whose name the rite is performed; and (iii) it is celebration of social harmony achieved by the transcendence of the fundamental conflicts between various sources of power. Numbers from another Vedic rite, the Agnicayana; help in the understanding of several of its details.

About the Author:

Subhash Kak is an acclaimed scientist, historian and Vedic scholar. Currently a professor at Louisiana State University, he has authored thirteen books and more than 200 research papers in the fields of information theory, neural networks and Indic studies.

Reviews:

"Mr.Kak's crystallised monograph is very helpful in comprehending a ritual that is highly complicated and defies our mental categories of understanding." -The Vedanta Kesari
