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. 1901. Excerpt: ... PREFACE. It is a matter of great satisfaction to me, to be able to introduce the fifth volume of this series, which, perhaps,is a little late in its appearance, owing to the illness of the translator and to the Chhandogya having interposed itself between this and the first two volumes. The late Professor Max M idler, to whom India is under a deep debt of gratitude, expressed, in a letter to me (printed overleaf), his desire to accept the dedication of the translation of the JBrihadaranyaka Upanishad. 1 therefore take this opportunity to announce to the public that the translation of the Brihadaranyaka will accordingly be dedicated to the memory of the departed Professor and will be issued in convenient parts. My heartfelt thanks are due to my friend Mr. R. Kuppuswami Aiyar, High Court Vakil, for the great help he rendered me in revising this translation. Oxford, 19th December 1899. Dear Sir, I had already seen some of your Upanishad translations. They are very creditable to you and to your fellowworkers, such as Pandit Ganganatha Jha. They represent a real step in advance and I hope you will continue your very meritorious work. The Upanishads are extremely difficult to translate into English, and many passages lend themselves to different translations. I have myself translated the twelve most important Upanishads in the Sacred Books of the East, and you will find that I often discover in them a meaning different from that which you assign. I doubt whether we shall ever arrive at unanimity in this respect, but I highly appreciate your translation as a help towards that unanimity. If you translate the Brihaddranydka UpanisJiad I shall acxept its dedication to me as a real honour. Believe me, Yours very sincerely, F. MAX MULLER. To 31. R. Ry. V. C. SESHACIIA...
