In the Vedas, there are mentions of animal sacrifices, such as mantras for the sacrifice of a goat in the Rig, the horse sacrifice (Ashvamedha) in the Yajur, whilst in the Jyotistoma sacrifice three animal-sacrifices are performed, namely, Agnisomiya, Savaniya and Anubandhya. The Yajurveda is considered the Veda of sacrifices and rituals, and consists of a number of animal sacrifices, such as mantras and procedures for the sacrifices of a white goat to Vayu, a calf to Sarasvati, a speckled ox to Savitr, a bull to Indra, a castrated ox to Varuna and so on. According to Tom Regan, these rituals didn't focus on the killing of the animal but as a symbol to the powers it was sacrificed. In the Bhagavata Purana, Krishna tells people not to perform animal sacrifices although he says he will still accept the sacrifice since he resides in the soul of the sacrificial animal. Animal sacrifices are forbidden by the Bhagavata Purana in the "Kaliyuga", the present age. The Brahma Vaivarta Purana describes animal sacrifices as "kali-
" or prohibited in the "Kaliyuga". The Adi Purana, Brihan-naradiya Purana and Aditya Purana also forbid animal sacrifice in Kaliyuga.
