Description
About the Book

The learned author was a pundit by profession, but at the same time an extraordinary scholar and critic in every sense of the word. Mitra traces the history of spirit-drinking in India, and argues that the earliest Brahman settlers were a spirit-drinking race, both soma-beer and strong spirits being used by them. Wine was sold publicly both for the use of God and the community. Strong arrack formed a prominent feature of Santramani and the Vajapaya rites.

We find copious references to wine-drinking in the literature of later times from which Mitra quotes extensively to prove his statements. The matter and references are all drawn from authentic Sanskrit sources.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
Usha, USA
Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
