From the Jacket :

The book, Mimamsa-Paribhasa, edited by my humble self, throws new light on a neglected branch of Indian philosophy. Krsna Yajvan's work is a standard text on the Purva Mimamsa system and it covers all the terminologies connected with the science of rituals. The present work critically edited for the first time with an exhaustive Introduction and English Translation will cater to the needs of innumerable readers in the East and the West. It will fill up the gap in the Purva Mimamsa system of philosophy which still suffers from a dearth of annotated elementary texts in the field of sacrificial ceremonial. It will go a long way in unraveling the intricacies of ritualistic science following in the footsteps of the reputed author.
