    Pranam,

    Do you believe that the momentum, heart, kidneys are symbolic? And what about the "Darvi spoon of Udumbara wood"?

    Personally I would expect instructions how to create such symbolic animal as it would likely be surrounded with rituals to prepare it.

    May be they would cut up random parts inside the cake and symbolize it as internal organs?

    Here is an interesting passage from Aitareya Brahmana,which connects various parts of the sacrificial cake with the animal parts http://books.google.co.in/books?id=b...0blood&f=false

    And there IS a ritual myth associated with symbolical sacrifice,see Satapatha Brahmana verses 1.2.3.5 onwards
    "Only one is the fire,which is inflamed in numerous ways.Only one is the sun, which pervades the whole universe.Only one is the dawn,which illuminates all things. Similarly,all that exists is The One and it has manifested into everything here.”

    Now if one were of a thinking mind, this statement has far reaching implications. Jātavedas knows every birth, every production. If we limit ourselves, then one ends up thinking, He knows every birth.
    But if one opens up the possibilities, we have an extensive range for the notion of 'birth'.
    • the birth of all human beings and any/all beings on this earth or above or below it.
    • the birth of any seedling that becomes a plant or flora.
    • the birth of a thought
    • the birth of an idea
    • the birth of an action
    • etc.
    These are just a few ideas of the far reaching comprehension of what jātavedas knows and may wish to perceive.



    iti śivaṁ

    I think Agni is being called as Jatavedas because he is the second self of Prajapati-Purusha ,the manifested Brahman who created the whole world from his own body.

    Yesterday,i read in Taittiriya Samhita that Agni also represents the solar energy.
    "Only one is the fire,which is inflamed in numerous ways.Only one is the sun, which pervades the whole universe.Only one is the dawn,which illuminates all things. Similarly,all that exists is The One and it has manifested into everything here.”
