Σελίδα 143 - Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere causas, Atque metus omnes, et inexorabile fatum Subjecit pedibus, strepitumque Acherontis avari.
Σελίδα 159 - I can trace something very like Buddhism into far ages and realms : but I am sure that that Buddhism which has come down to us in the Sanskrit, Pali and Tibetan books of the sect, and which alone therefore we do or can know, is neither old nor exotic. That Buddhism (the doctrines of the...
Σελίδα 141 - ... siphia, digenea) belong to the mid-region ; and the plainer and more European types are alone found in the northern. Among the fissirostres, goat-suckers and swallows are pretty generally distributed; but rollers, bee-eaters, eurylaimi, trogons, and all such gaudy types belong to the south, with only occasional alpine representatives, as bucia is of merops. The tenuirostral birds belong distinctly to the lower region, yet they have representatives or summer visitants in all three, even among...
Σελίδα 40 - Pur&na.) 2. He whose image is Siinya t;1, who is like a cypherJ or point, infinite, unsustained (in Nirvritti), and sustained (in Pravritti), whose essence is Nirvritti, of whom all things are forms (in Pravritti), and who is yet formless (in Nirvritti), who is the Iswara, the first intellectual essence, the Adi-Buddha, was revealed by his own will.
Σελίδα 201 - Christians of the dark ages, who deemed in like manner of the Jews. The manner in which our author treats this part of his subject is, in my judgment, admirable, and altogether worthy of an European mind. Indeed it bears the closest resemblance to the style of argument used by Shakespeare in covertly assailing the analogous European prejudice already adverted to. I need not point more particularly to the glorious passage in the Merchant of Venice : " Hath not a Jew eyes, hands, organs, dimensions,...
Σελίδα 204 - Brahmani produced ? From the mouth likewise ? Grant it — and then you must marry the brother to the sister ! a pretty business indeed ! if such incest is to have place in this world of ours, all distinctions of right and wrong must be obliterated. This consequence, flowing inevitably from your doctrine that the Brahman proceeded from the mouth, proves the falsity of that doctrine.
Σελίδα 204 - Oh, YUDHISTHIRA! If a Sudra be superior to the allurements of the five senses, to give him charity is a virtue that will be rewarded in heaven. Heed not his caste; but only mark his qualities. Whoever in this life ever does well, and is ever ready to benefit others, spending his days and nights in good acts, such an one is a Brahman; and whoever, relinquishing worldly ways, employs himself solely in the acquisition of Moksha, such an one also is...
Σελίδα 203 - Wonderful ! You affirm that all men proceeded from one, ie Brahma ; how then can there be a fourfold insuperable diversity among them ? If I have four sons by one wife, the four sons, having one father and mother, must be all essentially alike.
Σελίδα 143 - Parana relates in substance as follows : That formerly the valley of Nepaul was of circular form, and full of very deep water, and that the mountains confining it were clothed with the densest forests, giving shelter to numberless birds and beasts. Countless waterfowl rejoiced in the waters. The name of the lake was Niiga Vâsa;§ it was beautiful as the lake of Indra; south of the Hemáchal, the residence of Karkotaka, prince of the Nagas ; seven со
Σελίδα 143 - NW (Vayukona) side of it, and, having repeated several mantras over the root of a lotos, he threw it into the water, exclaiming, " What time this root shall produce a flower, then, from out of the flower, Swayambhu, the Lord of Agnishtha Bhuvana, shall be revealed in the form of flame ; and then shall the lake become a cultivated and populous country.
