They were divided into two distinct parts, each consisting of six months of thirty days each ; in the midst of both was the Vishuvan, ie equator or central day, cutting the INTRODUCTION. 47 whole Sattra into two halves. The ceremonies were in both the halves exactly the same; but they were in the latter half performed in an inverted order.
Page 197 - Brahmar/as and the Sutras, yet, without having seen the actual site on which the sacrifices are offered, the altars constructed for the occasion, the instruments employed by different priests — the tout-ensemble, in fact, of the sacred rites — the reader seems to deal with words, but with words only, and is unable to reproduce in his imagination the acts and facts which were intended to be conveyed by them.
