This book is an attempt to explain the most basic ritual called Isti with the help of the original texts and the photographs of the actual performance of that sacrifice that took place in Pune, India, in July 1979. The book contains in all 140 photographs showing various stages of the sacrifice with explanation of the rites. It also provides a Roman transcript of the Sanskrit text of the Pavitrestiprayoga along with its English translation.
" The elaborate introduction, to otherwise a purely pictorial book, has added to the value of the book...The entire book is printed on art paper and all the 140 photographs are superb. The get-up and the printing are exceptionally good.
