Book: The Asuri Kalpa A Witchcraft Practice Of The Atharva Veda by Herbert William MagounThe ritual literature of the Atharva-Veda, like that of the other Vedas, has attached to itself certain parifistas, or supplements. Of these, the thirty-fifth, according to the best accessible MS, is the Asurl-Kalpa, an abhicara, or Witchcraft practice, Containing rites to be used in connection with the asurl-plant. The question as to what this plant was will be discussed below. The use of the word kalpa for such a text is explained by a passage in the Atharvanlya-Paddhati, which states, on the authority of Uparvarsa,' that in addition to the five AV. kalpas—Kau9ika, Vaitana, Naksatra, ^anti, and Angirasa — which are called ' inspired,' there are certain other kalpas which are to be considered as smrti ' handed down by tradition.'
Three MSS have been consulted in preparing this paper. Two of them are copies ofjhe parifistas of the AV. ; the third is a commentary to the Asuri-Kalpa. All three are loans to Dr. Bloomfield from the British Government in India, Just here I may say that I am greatly indebted to Dr. Bloomfield for the use of these MSS, for the encouragement and assistance which he has given me, and for his kindness in looking over my work.
