Post a Comment. Max Muller was a Sanskrit scholar and Orientologist who rose to fame with his translation of the Rig Veda and several other Sanskrit literatures from India. He was part of a small group of Historians who sometimes defined and in other times redefined India's past based on theories that they felt were justified by archaeological or historical evidences. This book is a series of lectures he gave to Indian Civil Service officers of Colonial Britain at the University of Cambridge, before they were commissioned on administrative assignments in India for years. Max Muller makes a case for how Sanskrit literature is rich in content and context sometimes surpassing Greek literature that most Europeans are largely appreciative of. He talks about the wisdom espoused in the Rig Veda around concepts such as religion and philosophy thereby attributing cultural richness to the nation. The author belabors the point that the true India is in the village communities of the country.
In these lectures Max Muller had praised Indian culture and ancient Sanskrit literature. He was the first translator of Rig Veda and work in the field of Indian Studies, Comparative religions and Vedic culture. He was also a leading intellectual and thinker on the culture of India.
