Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The scriptures revered by Hindus are enormously varied, and R. C. Zaehner's anthology has long been considered invaluable for its breadth and diversity. Now Dominic Goodall expands Zaehner's work with three fresh translations, including one work that appears for the first time in English. Spanning more than two thousand years, the range of selections in this book include arcane hymns of the ancient Aryans, prescriptions governing every aspect of the daily life of the orthodox, and sensual poetry.

Synopsis:

With the addition of three fresh translations, including one work which appears for the first time in English, this new and expanded edition of Zaehner's invaluable anthology now spans more than twenty centuries and ranges from arcane hymns of the ancient Aryans and prescriptions that govern every aspect of the daily life of the orthodox, to rich poetry that describes with heady sensuality the dalliance of Krsna and the cowherd women of Vraja on the nights of the autumn moon.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [406]-410).

Synopsis:

"The Veda, the Upanishads, the Gita, the Dharma books, Tantra, and the Bhagavata Purana—these are the texts many Hindus would name as forming the core of their tradition. Here they are, at last, between two covers."—Jack Hawley, Director, South Asian Institute, Columbia University
