The Vedic ritual reasonings (arthavada-s) glorifying the Vedic rites and rituals and initially springing from the sacred tradition, bring directly or indirectly with them the beliefs and practices prevalent in the then Vedic society. At times are indicated in them the avedic beliefs and practices.
The arthavada-s thus bear relation to the secular or profane tradition. Even admitting that the sacred and secular traditions are complementary to each other, more weightage has to be given to the secular or profane tradition, for it has provided much matter to the sacred tradition.
The present book (in two volumes) dealing with the Vedic beliefs and practices, enables the reader to have a peep in the Vedic society of the hoary past and is an aid to know the cultural history of ancient India.
