About the Book:

There was no work in existence in the form of a classical Dictionary, designed to afford direct ais to a scholar in acquiring a knowledge of the Mythology and Antiquities of India. Acknowledgement of Ancient Hindu literature is still necessary to the attainment of scholarship.

To supply, in some measure, these wants is the object of the work. It contains an account of all the Hindu deities, and all the mythical personages and objects, that are likely to be met with in the study of Hindu literature, whether Sanskrit or vernacular. The various terms of Brahmanical and Buddhistical theology and ritual, and of the schools of Indian philosophy, will be found briefly explained. Such information as can be obtained on the subject of ancient Indian geography has been given. Actually, the work is more of an Encyclopaedia than a dictionary. Quotations from other writers are included where they are necessary for better understanding of the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain works.
