Excerpt

This short course of Lectures which are printed as they were delivered attempts to state the central principles of the Hindu view of life. I am aware that some things which ought to be said and without which any statement of the Hindu view is incomplete are omitted, while, on the other hand, opinions are expressed which call for evidence or argument which are not here supplied. I have dealt with the whole subject of the Hindu philosophy of religion more fully in the Haskell Lectures which I had the honour to deliver in the University of Chicago this August, and when they are published, I hope that some serious gaps in the present work will be filled. In the meantime I shall be satisfied if this brief exposition conveys to the general reader some idea of the spirit of Hinduism.

I am greatly indebted to my friend Professor J. S. Mackenzie for his kindness in reading the manuscript.

S. R.

NEW YORK CITY, September 9, 1926.
