Book Description

About the Book
This book talks about the philosophy of Hindu Religion through various aspects such as sacred book like Rg Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda and Atharva Veda. The book also talks about division of Vedas, Śruti and Smrti.

The Sankhya system of Philosophy and the observations on the Sankhya have also been discussed. The Nyaya sys tem, Vaiseşika system, Mimamsa, the Yoga system also carroborate the Phi losophy of Hindu Religion.

This book also speaks about the Vedanta system and the ten Incarnations of Visnu and explains the Philosophy of Hindu Religion therewith.

The Vedas, as the Mimämsä tells us, contain an account of the laws of Nature. The Upanisads are said to be an exposition of the secret doctrine of the Vedas.

On the whole, this book explains the Hindu Philosophy of Religion touching about every aspect. The language and the presentation of the book will Artainly Wake it useful and readable.

It is not without some hesitation that I am releasing the present work-a translation of the Mimamsa Satras of Jaimini-the longest and, perhaps, the least understood of all the six principal systems of Hindu Philosophy, for a more regular course would have been to begin with the Sankhya, and then go on to the other systems. But, for reasons explained in the Introduction, it has been necessary to do so, in order that the reader may be able to form an idea of the real character of the Sacred Books of the Hindus.

The present work is an attempt at a simple, but a reasonably accurate, translation of the original text. A purely literal rendering of a work, even in a modern language, would make difficult reading; and an English version of so simple a book as the Bhagavad Gita has often to deviate from the original idiom to be understood. This difficulty is greatly increased in the case of the Sutras of Hindu Philosophy; for they are not short, pithy, and independent utterances of great truths, as is commonly believed-but brief, exact, and clearly defined statements of great ideas, which are closely knit together and need to be properly understood. It would have been possible to translate each Sutra literally and separately; but, while that may have been more exact and accurate, it would have broken up the unity of thought and continuity of expression of the work as a whole, and that was perhaps even more important. It was accordingly necessary to steer a middle course, and that has been attempted in the present work.
