Ashvamedha

Doing more reading about India in India: A History by John Keay today. Ran across an interesting passage about a ritual called Ashvamedha. The link is worth a few minutes of reading. The part in the book I was reading referred to the traveling of the horse-sacrifice to determine where should be attacked next. The other aspects of the ritual were not mentioned in the book I'm reading, but were quite unusual, to say the least.

Oh, and I just noticed we're over 40 followers now. That's cool. :)
