This work furnishes the key to the modern Hinduism and contains interesting information regarding gods and goddesses of the Hindu Pantheon. It is said that no mythology in the world has so many points of interest and such intrinsic value as that of the Hindus. But to understand it is, by no means, an easy task. The present work furnishes the key to the modern Hinduism, for, the writer has brought to bear on its preparation his great learning of the Vedas, the Puranas and the Tantras as well as his careful observations of the customs and manners of the Hindus. The book also contains an important chapter on some of the useful plants mentioned in the Hindu Sastras. EDITOR:B D Basu is a veteran scholar and has devoted more than half a century of his long and eventful life, not only to the study of Sanskrit literature and philosophy in general, but also of the comparative philology and comparative mythology.
