Brahma-Jagnam in Hindu doctrine, is a solemn offering which the Brahmins bring to Brahma. After a bath they dress entirely in white, sing songs, and read various passages out of the Vedas, during which time the youngest among them make a fire with the sweetsmelling sandal-wood; then they drop cocoa oil or melted butter into the fire, and throw flowers on it. This is the only sacrifice brought to the great Brahma.
