This book deals with post-Vedic developments in under-standing the concept of sacrifice (yajna) and the response of the Bhagavad Gita to it. The book argues that the Upanishads present Vedic ritual notions together with the new teachings of the wandering renouncers (sramanas) who posed a formidable challenge to the ritual tradition and its social hierarchy.
