Hi Satori,

Since TiltBillings hasn't got back to you with references yet, I suggest reading:
What the Buddha Thought, by Richard Gombrich
http://www.wisdom-books.com/ProductDetail.asp?PID=19312
This book is easy to read and contains some informed discussion of the Brahminical thought that the Buddha was interacting with.

"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332

The following lengthy essay covers a lot of the history at the time of the Buddha in relation to the Brahminacal thought of the time:

I also recommend looking into the article by Jurewicz that Gombrich cites in his book.
In particular, it shows how the whole Vedic notion of "fire" works, which is kind of radically different from playing around with these terms and ideas in English.
