Sivu 17 - BESSENT or Spring: he is represented as a beautiful youth, sometimes conversing with his mother and consort in the midst of his gardens and temples; sometimes riding by moonlight on a parrot or lory, and attended by dancing-girls or nymphs, the foremost of whom bears his colours, which are a fish on a red ground.
Sivu 22 - Brahmans of course prefer that poetry which they believe to have been actually inspired; while the Vaidyas (who are in general perfect grammarians and good poets, but are not suffered to read any of the sacred writings except the...
