readings available in a few more manuscripts, besides those in the

published edition in Telugu script, which were not available to Prof.

Caland who brought out a critical edition of its first seven Kandas. It is

former is available. Still a fresh attempt at translating the latter

section under the heading Vimarsa discussing certain selected topics

arising out of a study of the text; an exhaustive list of contents,

Brahmana-wise and Glossary of technical terms are some of the additional

features of this attempt. The suggestions and guideance of traditional

scholars who are experts in Srautayagas are the most important advantages

of this edition.
