Reflections on the Teachings of Ahīnas Āśvatthi, with a Translation of Jaiminīya Brāhmana 2.419 and 2.421

Author:

Brett Schults

Abstract

The teachings of Ahīnas Āśvatthi are set forth in one of the many stories told in the Jaiminīya Brāhmaṇa (JB). In this article I will venture to translate portions of that story, and offer some reflections on the challenges and pleasures of reading this part of the JB. It is my hope that this article will draw attention to Murakawa’s editorial achievement with respect to the problematic text of the JB, and to the possibilities the JB may hold for shedding light on Brahmanical religious culture as it was experienced in ancient India.
