    1. This was a text book read for some one who is interested to know the historical perspective on India. Especially from someone who dedicated their life to discover the India that was lost Indians among themselves. At present we are still in the process in rediscovering our roots and some are fighting to keep the essence alive. Emphasis on the knowledge of Sanskrit has been core throughout Max's lecture. Reading him I feel insecure; as to how much is inaccessible to out generation who in majority [...]

    2. This book is compilation of lectures delivered by Max Muller at Cambridge to british ICS officers posted in India.The true India and perception of its glory needs to be invoked in the youth of India.

    3. It is a series of lectures that were meant for the aspiring ICS officers of 19th century England but even today, it can provide the modern day Indians with a very good idea of what ancient Indian religion was all about. A bit heavy to read at times, but thoroughly relevant.

    4. Reading this book was a pure delight! Every word in the book is infused with solemn reverence for Ancient India. It is an eye opener in many ways. It sheds light on our long forgotten Sanskrit literature. More importantly, it demonstrates the history of the Hindu (or rather Vedantic) religion, from its humble beginning to its highest flights.I would recommend this book to every Indian who cares to understand his country, its culture and its tradition or anyone who is interested in Indian history [...]

    5. A very interesting take on ancient India. Prof.Muller's respect for India and the Hindu civilization is clearly manifested in the lectures. We may have our disagreements with certain theories proposed by the professor but there is no doubt in my mind that this book presented to me a well read and researched version of the ancient Hindu civilization.Highly recommended.

    6. a must read for every Indian. in this time when people across are becoming restless about the deteriorating social in India and when on one end I see more and more people adopting western culture, it is so heartening to see how passionate a non-Indian was about India, it's history and his people. this book has surely given legs to my "stay in India" belief.

    7. I read only two chapters so far. And i think every indian as well as the whole world should read this book. And its available for free on gutenberg. I will definitely recommend it to everyone. I want to spread this message to the whole world.
