In his earlier work, Atman: A Reconstruction of the Solar Cosmology of the Indo-Europeans, the author developed an explanation of the cosmology of the postulated Noachidian race that branched into the Semite, Japhetite, and Hamite cultures of Egypt, Sumer, India, and early Europe and sought to explain how it formed the basis of their respective mythologies. In this companion work, he discusses the same solar cosmology as the source and significance of the principal brahmanic rituals of these different cultures.
