Karma-kanda - an essential subject

Vedas are composed of karma-kāṇḍa, jñāna-kāṇḍa and upāsanā-kāṇḍa. Karma-kanda, also known as sacrificial activities, allows one to reach a very basic level in his spiritual life. Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu's teachings state that one who analytically studies the purpose of the Vedas understands that by karma-kāṇḍa, one comes to the conclusion of jñāna-kāṇḍa, speculative knowledge, and that after speculation one comes to the conclusion that worship of the Supreme Personality of Godhead is the ultimate. Therefore, when one realises this, he becomes fully satisfied.
