The Vedic Religion, idea of sacrifice
-- idea of sacrifice;
-- How does sacrifice come into the idea of RTA
-- sacrifice: dominant way to support the circle; our ritual way of acknowledging
the circle;
-- self- consciously engage in our part to contribute to that cirle;
Elements in nature
-- Vedic sacrifice was highly specialized and symbolic. All those rituals acts that
people engage to sacrifice were highly symbolic; each element in the ritual
means something;
-- always conducted around the fire fire is a very important element: most
effective element in communication;
-- takes use of various natural forces: wind energizing, moving everything
around; manifest the breath our body; element of fire manifesting in our body:
warmth
-- recognize extensively the power of nature
-- saw the extension of these power from the outside from the inside:
wind(outside), breath(inside); fire(outside), warmth(inside), water(outside), body
fluid(inside);
-- between macro and micro, from outer to inner;
Rituals
-- lots of rituals develop to further recognize these power;
-- some rituals could be very expensive and involve with the whole community,
takes years to complete the sacrifice; while some were modest, and takes only a
family to finish;
-- e.g. Ascamedha: 12-year long ritual performed by a priest and initiated by a
king:
Political event as well as religious event, and involved the whole community;
Political event aimed at political supremacy; King claims to be the most
political leader in the area.
How did it go: after everyone is “cleansed: Especially chosen horse: let loose,
whenever it wanders, the king claims the territories as his own.
Followed by kings army, and remove any conflict that might be caused by
resistance;
