The Grihya Sutras Part 1 By Hermann Oldenberg

The Grihya Sutras Part 1

Hermann Oldenberg


This is a Facsimile PDF. It has 478 pages and was published in 1886.

Description

This is Volume XXIX of the Sacred Books of the East, and Part 1 of the Griyha Sutras. The Grihya Sutras are a collection of late Vedic-era (ca. 500 BCE) household rituals and regulations, many reflecting much more ancient traditions. It is like reading a time-travelling ethnographer's field notes in Vedic India. Included are fertility and marriage ceremonies, ritual purity laws, plus material on initiations, funerals and other rites of passage.
