Strana lxxii - No prudent man, who has any knowledge of Eastern affairs, would ever venture to predict the maintenance of continued peace within our Eastern possessions. Experience, frequent hard and recent experience, has taught us that war from without, or rebellion from within, may at any time be raised against us, in quarters where they were the least to be expected, and by the most feeble and unlikely instruments. No man, therefore, can ever prudently hold forth assurance of continued peace in India.
Strana lvi - As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death, "so is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, 'Am not I in sport?
Strana 120 - The supreme being is one, sole-existent, secondless, entire, without parts, sempiternal, infinite, ineffable, invariable ruler of all, universal soul, truth, wisdom, intelligence, happiness. Individual souls, emanating from the supreme one, are likened to innumerable sparks issuing from a blazing fire. From him they proceed, and to him they return, being of the same essence. The soul which governs the body together with its organs, neither is born; nor does it die. It is a portion of the divine substance;...
Strana 120 - The old Upanishads did not pretend to give more than '' guesses at truth," and when, in course of time, they became invested with an inspired character, they allowed great latitude to those who professed to believe in them as revelation. Yet this was not sufficient for the rank growth of philosophical doctrines during the latter ages of Indian history ; and when none of the ancient Upanishads could be found to suit the purpose, the founders of new sects had no scruple and no difficulty in composing...
Strana xlviii - Hindu mythology may be regarded as not fully developed, the shape and operations of divine and semi-divine beings are generally suggestive of the monstrous, the frightful, the hideous, and the incredible ; the deeds of its heroes, who are themselves half-gods, transport the imagination into the region of the wildest chimeera ; and a whole pantheon presents itself, teeming with grotesque and unwieldy symbols, with horrible creations, half-animals half-gods, with man-eating ogres, many-headed giants...
Strana xiii - ... (2), the inflexion of the plural by annexing to the unvarying sign of plurality the same suffixes of case as those by which the singular is inflected ; (3), the use in several of the northern idioms of two pronouns of the first person plural, the one including, the other excluding, the party addressed...
Strana 120 - GOD is the omniscient and omnipotent cause of the existence, continuance, and dissolution of the universe. Creation is an act of his will. He is both efficient and material cause of the world : creator and nature, framer and frame, doer and deed. At the consummation of all things, all are resolved into him : as the spider spins his thread from his own substance and gathers it in again...
Strana 73 - The SAKTI is personated by a naked female, to whom meat and wine are offered, and then distributed amongst the assistants, the recitation of various Mantras and texts, and the performance of the...
Strana ix - Perhaps no language combines greater force with equal brevity ; and it may be asserted that no human speech is more close and philosophic in its expression, as an exponent of the mind. The sequence of things, of thought, purpose, action and its results, is always maintained inviolate.
Strana xi - Linquenda tellus et domus et placens Uxor, neque harum, quas colis, arborum Te praeter invisas cupressos Ulla brevem dominum sequetur.
