Editorial Reviews

"Offers a new and authoritative translation, with Sanskrit text and extensive notes...The introduction gives useful information for nonspecialists....Particularly interesting are Olivelle's remarks on human physiology and psychology and their connections with the cosmos....Likely to become thestandard for this generation. For all libraries and scholarly shelves."--Religious Studies Review
