Talk:Prsadajya

From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

By Swami Harshananda

prsadajya (‘speckled ghee’)

In Paśuyāgas (animal sacrifices) the pṛṣadājya is an important ingredient that is used to sprinkle over the heart of the animal immolated. It is actually a mixture of ājya or ghee sprinkled with curdled milk.

The details of its preparation and use are generally dealt with in the Srautasutras (vide Apastamba Srautasutras 7.23.7; Baudhāyana Srautasutras 4.3).
