Hindu Scriptures
Description

About the Book:

Hindu Scriptures is a unique collection of Hindu texts spanning more than twenty centuries. An enlarged edition of R.C. Zaehner's anthology, with the addition of three fresh translations (including one work which appears for the first time in English), its broad range includes arcane hymns of the ancient Aryans, a manual of prescriptions governing every aspect of the daily life of the orthodox, and rich poetry that describes with heady sensuality the dalliance of Krsna and the cowherd women of Vraja on the nights of the autumn moon

About the Author:

DOMINIC GOODALL was educated at Ampleforth College and at Pembroke College, Oxford, where he read Sanskrit. After two years at the University of Hamburg (as a Hanseatic scholar of the Stiftung Freiherr von Stein) and doctoral studies at Wolfson College, Oxford, he is now attached to the Institute Francais de Pondichery in South India and is working with the manuscript collection there.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
