Page 111 - The real doctrine of the whole Indian Asiatic Researches, vol. vii. p. 283. scripture is the unity of the deity, in whom the universe is comprehended : and the seeming polytheism which it exhibits, offers the elements, and the stars, and planets, as gods.
Page 116 - Accompanying her husband she shall reside so long " in Swarga as are the thirty-five millions of hairs on " the human body. " As the Snake-catcher forcibly drags the Serpent " from his earth ; so, bearing her husband from Hell, " with him she shall enjoy heavenly bliss. " Dying with her husband, she sanctifies her maternal " and paternal ancestors, and the ancestry of him, to

Page 27 - Other deities, belonging to those several regions, are portions of the (three) gods; for they are variously named and described, on account of their different operations; but (in fact) there is only one deity; the great soul (Mahan atma).
Page 33 - I pervade heaven and earth. I bore the father on the head of this universal mind ; and my origin is in the midst of the ocean : and therefore do I pervade all beings, and touch this heaven with my form. Originating all beings, I pass like the breeze; I am above this heaven, beyond this earth; and what is the GREAT ONE, that am I.
Page 251 - Goc, iswARA, the supreme ruler," according to PATANJALI,* "is. a soul or spirit distinct from other souls; unaffected by the ills with which they are beset; unconcerned with good or bad deeds and their consequences, and with fancies or passing thoughts. In him is the utmost omniscience. He is the instructor of the earliest beings that have a beginning (the deities of mythology) ; himself infinite, unlimited by time.
Page 382 - Sarnvara is that which stops (samvrin6ti) the course of the foregoing ; or closes up the door or passage of it : and consists in self-command, or restraint of organs internal and external : embracing all means of self-control, and subjection of the senses, calming and subduing them.
Page 34 - Darkness there was ; (for) this universe was enveloped with darkness, and was undistinguishable (like fluids mixed in) waters ; but that mass, which was covered by the husk, was (at length) produced by the power of contemplation. First, desire was formed in his mind, and that became the original productive seed ; which the wise, recognising it by the intellect in their hearts, distinguish, in nonentity, as the bond of entity.
Page 321 - The earth is not the king's, but is common to all beings enjoying the fruit of their own labour. It belongs, says Jaimini, to all alike: therefore, although a gift of a piece of ground to an individual does take place, the whole land cannot be given by a monarch, nor a province by a subordinate prince; but house and field, acquired by purchase and similar means, are liable to gift.
Page 48 - Thus HE drew from the waters and framed an embodied being. He viewed him ; and of that being so contemplated the mouth opened as an egg ; from the mouth speech issued ; from speech fire proceeded. The nostrils spread ; from the nostrils breath passed ; from breath air was propagated. The eyes opened ; from the eyes a glance sprang ; from that glance the sun was produced.
