Review quote

Mr. Sargeant must be congratulated on his labor of love. One of the masterpieces of Indian and human religious genius has been made accessible in all its splendid and profound complexity. Mircea Eliade Winthrop Sargeant furnishes not only a masterly translation and concisely informative introductions and notes, but also a transliteration of the original text. This makes it possible for the newcomer to perceive and enjoy the sound of the original, which in India has always been given enormous and almost magical importance. The New Yorker If you don t know Sanskrit but you still want to come to grips with the G t in its original language, then this is the version for you. Yoga Journal There is no other Sanskrit text available to the English-language reader that can compare to this one in comprehensiveness of linguistic material. Philosophy East and West"
