A unique collection of Hindu texts spanning more than twenty centuries, including one work which appears for the first time in English.
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.
