If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions of some of them which well deserve the attention even of those who have studied Plato and Kant, I Should Point to India.

And if I were to ask myself from what literature we, here in Europe, we who have been nurtured almost exclusively on the thoughts of Greeks and Romans and of one Semitic race, the Jewish, may draw that Corrective which is most wanted in order to make our inner life more perfect, more comprehensive, more universal, in fact, more truly human, a life, not for this life only, but a transfigured and eternal life – again I should point to India.

This book in the 1970s augured well for the Bengalis in Particular who had been oblivious of their Glorious past. These essays were culled by Sri Mookerjee from four of Max Muller’s works which were brought out between the years 1875 and 1900. the upshot of Sri Mookerjee’s bold venture was a landmark publication.
