This collection of lectures of Max Muller portrays India, especially the Vedic India, as an epitome of a virtuosity, and morality, whose glory is equal, if not greater, to the classical Greek or Roman civilizations.
'If I', says Muller, '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'
In this collection of 7 essays, Muller argues that there are many things which India has to learn from us; but there are other things, and in one sense, very important things, which we too may learn from India. He portrays India, specially the Vedic India, as an epitome of a virtuosity, and morality, whose glory is equal, if not greater, to the classical Greek or Roman civilizations.
Max Muller urges the westerners to come out of their superior colonial mindset and admire and adopt the multi-dimensional efficacy that is inherent in India, Muller espouses an amazing depth of love and reverence for India, and highlights such positive aspects about her that it compels us to look at our own country in a different, positive light.
