About the Book
The Baudhayana Sulbasütram by the ancient seer Baudhayana is a master piece of Hindu geometry of the fire altars, vedis, maṇḍapas and fire hearths. It is the 30th chapter of the Baudhayana Śrautasutram of the 8th century BC. The present book is an endeavour to make the readers of ancient antiquity understand the concepts of geometry of sacrifices prevalent in the Vedic period. The book is divided into three chapters along with an introduction and four appendices:
Appendix-A-Index to words, Appendix-B-Index to Sūtras, Appendix-C-Units of Measurement and Appendix-D-Technical Terms.
A Hindi commentary Agnikā and English translation of aphorisms have been provided along with the tables and geometrical figures so that the students as well as the scholars may understand easily the purport of the author of the Sulbasutra.
