Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1873 Excerpt: ...the last combat with Ravana. It was Matali who told Rama not to aim at the demon's heads, but at his heart, and thus effected his destruction. Mayavin--An Asura who challenged Balf the monkey king to come and wrestle with him. Balf rushed forth followed by his brother Sugriva; when Mayavin saw both of the formidable apes his courage failed bim, and turning back into the forest he fled with the speed of the wind. The monkeys pursued him for many miles, but his swiftness of foot was extreme, and the morning dawned ere they had come up with him. Then just as they were close on his heels the wily demon stepped on one side, and rushed into a cavern whose entrance was concealed by shrubs and creeping plants. But Bah-had seen his place of refuge and followed him into it, requesting Sugriva to remain outside.

Sugriva was then made king; but one day Balf himself reappeared, having been the victor over Mayavin, but unable to get out of the cavern, and thinking that his brother had blocked it up in purpose to deprive him of his crown, vowed to take his life; Sugriva however took refuge in the wood of Rishyamuka, from which Bali had been excluded by the curse of the sage Matunga.--I. E., 169. Medicine--In Medicine, as in astronomy and metaphysics, tha Hindus once kept pace with the most enlightened nations of the world; and attained as thorough a proficiency in medicine and surgery as any people whose acquisitions are recorded, and as indeed...
