Many of the Buddha’s teachings are in direct response to what he sees as wrong in the brahminical religion. One of his most common approaches is to use the very same brahminical terms and give them a new spirit. For example, the Buddha speaks of “the three fires” (aggi) that correspond to the three permanently burning fires of the āhit‰gni (the brahmin who follows the ritual prescription of the Vedic śrauta tradition and keeps fires burning for the purposes of his obligatory daily rites).
