    About the Book

    Katyayanasrautasutra belongs to the White Yajurveda which is very popular in northern India. Katyass is a comparatively young text among the numerous Srauta-Sutras. The Srautasutras deal with the solemn sacrifices like Agnihotra, New and Full-Mon-sacrifices are included the famous sacrifices like Agnistoma, Vajepeya. Asvamedha and many long sacrificial sessions. Katyass deals with these Srauta sacrifices in a systematic manner. For religions and cultural studies on ancient India the text is very important and useful. The Vedic rituals are rather neglected by Sanskrit scholars. The present text along with translation and notes will make ritualistic studies more possible on the part of scholars.

     

    About the Author

    Prof. G. U. Thite, retired professor and Head, Department of Sanskrit and Prakrit Languages, university of Pune, is presently the Curator at Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute, Pune. His publications: Sacrifice in the Brahmana texts, Pune, 1975, Carvakasamiksa (ed) Pune, 1978; Yajna asaya ani aviskara (ed.) Pune, 1979; Medicine: its magicoreligious aspects according to Vedic and later Literature, Pune, 1981; Music in the Veda: its magicoreligious significances, Delhi, 1996; Yajna: Kal, Aj, ani Udya, Pune, 2000; Apastamba-Srauta-sutra (translation with notes), Delhi, 2005; several papers in national and international journals; knowledge of French and German. Some of his thought-provoking theses are as follows:
    1) In India there is both Veda-pramanya and Pramanavedatva. 2) Vratya was an ur-monk. The Vratya-Stoma sacrifices were to be performed in order to become a Vratya and not to be free from Vratyahood. 3) There is no word for nation in Sanskrit. The world Rastra means state and not nation. 4) Sanskrit and Computer do not require each other for their existence and development. 5) Modern Sanskrit Poetry has not basis of Pratibha and therefore does not deserve to be taken seriously. 6) There is a revival of voyeurism and exhibitionism in Vedic rituals. 7) Modern period of Indological Studies is a decadent period where all freshness is lost. All the subjects of research in Indology are exhausted.
