From forward: “The sentiments of Hindu Sages that follow have been chosen mostly from well-known books. They are instructive in many respects, and pretend to be nothing but a collection of notes made by the author while seeking a solution to his own doubts and difficulties… So this monograph–the subject of which is the one most intimately bound up with the life of every man and woman–will be found useful and interesting, both to the Aryans of the East, and to the Aryans of the West, and further needs no apology for its appearance.”
