Hindu Manners, Customs and Ceremonies (Barnes & Noble Digital Library)eBook - 2011
During his thirty-one years in India, the author, a Catholic missionary, observed and documented the caste system, Brahminical life, and the Hindu religion. In this 1906 English translation, he describes feasts, temples, objects of worship, and the four states of Brahminical life. He also offers prescient observations of the British position in India. A warning: his observations, while quirky and useful, are bigoted.
