The present work Primitive Rituals of the Aryan People deals mainly with the ritualistic way of Worship that were commonly practised by the Aryan people in prehistoric times. These Aryan races can be traced by means of Tradition or excavation. They honoured their dead by a long series of customs which shed a surprising light on the ideas of man concerning a life after death. The Aryans undoubtedly, like other races, once worshipped and prayed to trees, stamps, stones and Animals not only as symbols of divinity, but as real embodiments of a divine anima. Along with sun, moon, thunderstorm and thundercrash, we find also Fire as an object of worship in primitive time. The fundamental features of the old Indian ancestor worship must be regarded as belonging to the Vedic Period. It is believed that its forms in most of the sources show that the ruling priesthood exerted a strong influence on them and to a large extent transformed them. This interesting book has been introduced by a renowned Orientalist Dr. O. Schrader whose profound Knowledge in Aryan and Semitic Mythology and religion, is well known. This excellent piece of work undoubtedly would be rooted deep in the heart of the people. Printed Pages: 215.
