Dear all,

in my recent book „Homo ritualis—Hindu Rituals and Ist Significance for Ritual Theory“ (OUP, 2016, ch. 9), I have elaborated on the relation of Pūrvamīmāṃsā and the practice of ritual as exemplified in the Arthasaṃgraha and other texts.

Dear Friends,

I find myself intrigued by the idea that there are people today compelled to carry on the karmakāṇḑa rituals.

I read a brief passage that alludes to the mīmāṃsā thought-world as providing textual evidence and injunctions for this practice of reenacting scriptural commandments, which were originally meant for a group of people in a different time and place. However, it only mentions mīmāṃsā and does not mention any specific author or text.

I would like to read this text but, as I know very little about mīmāṃsā I do not really know where to start. I thought I might find some help here in locating the passages I seek.

Thank you for your help.

All the best,
