Quick Reference

The internalization of the Brahmanical śrauta ritualist's twice-daily offering into the sacrificial fire (the agnihotra)—it now takes place in the breathing, or breaths (prāṇa), of the renouncer. The sacrifice and its benefits are therefore both continuous, and continuously under the control of the autonomous individual.
