Highly unusual work on ancient sacrifices (including animal and human sacrifice) in the ancient Vedic culture. The work translated is the arcane Tattiriya Sanhita which deals with: new and full moon sacrifices; soma sacrifices; preparations of the various altars and surrounds; soma cups; animal sacrifice; human sacrifice.
The Vedic Nakshastras [stars] arose from a spiritual perception of the universe. Nakshatras are the mansions of the Gods or cosmic powers and of the Rishis or sages. They can also project negative or anti-divine forces, just as certain planets like Saturn have well known malefic effects.
