A PANDIT'S REMARKS ON PROFESSOR MAX MÜLLER'S TRANSLATION OF THE SACRED HYMNS

OF THE BRAHMANS.' । परमेश्वरो जयति।

(Translated from the Sanskrit.)

"The Lord is great." एतदस्मानतीव सुखाकरोति यदस्मद्देशीयपण्डित- It rejoices us exceedingly that the best of our native Pandits वरा वेदव्याख्यानशुयशुद्धि विचार प्रवृत्ताः । धन्यो

are now engaged in examining the right and wrong methods

of interpreting the Veda. We congratulate the most learned ऽसौ विज्ञवरोऽनल्पभाषाभित्रः श्रीयुतबाबूशिवप्र- Babu Srivaprasada who, being himself acquainted with

several languages, has translated interpretations of the Rigसादो येन स्वयमेव भाषान्तरेभ्य ऋग्व्याख्यानानि reda from other languages into

Sanskrit, and published संस्कृतेष्वनुवादं कृत्वा पण्डितमण्डलीनयनगोचरार्थ them in this Journal (The Pandit), so that they might

meet the eyes of all native scholars. But oh ! how extraकाशीविद्यासुधानिधौ प्रकाशितानि । अहो कीदृशी ordinary are the labours of the intelligent, and the results of धीमतां क्षमता का वा परिश्रमस्य फलजनकता यद- shown by such men as Professor Moksha-milara (Mar

their perseverance! for the ability in interpreting the Veda, नागतानामपि भारतवर्षेऽदृष्टवतामपि भारतवर्षीय- Miller), a mere Mlechchha (barbarian), who has never been

in India, and has never seen the face of an Indian Pandit, पण्डितमुखानि म्लेच्छानामप्यध्यापकमोक्षमूलरदीनां has filled our heart with astonishment.

These European scholars do not set forth their own opinions

from any ill-will to us, nor do they ignore the excellencies of षांचाभिमुखीकृत्य स्वकीयं मतं प्रकाशितम् । प्रच- the native commentary of Sâyan'a, or dwell on its defects तान्वेिषण एव तेषामाशयः। व्याख्यानप्रकृताप्रकृतत्वे opinion of learned men, who are not committed in favour of

only. No, their chief object is to find out the truth; and the खपक्षपातिना कुसंस्काररहितानां विवर्याणां मत- one opinion or another, and who cannot be charged with any

evil designs, does surely deserve respect. मेव प्रमाणम् । ये तु परोन्नतिमसहमाना धर्मलोप

Do those who never teach the Veda and its meaning to भीता वा स्वजातीयवर्जमन्यं कमपि सार्थ वेदमेव anybody, not belonging to their own caste, either because they

cannot bear the elevation of others, or because they fear a नाध्यापयन्ति ते किं परम्परागतामसंलग्नामपि सा- breach of the law, adopt the opinions of modern scholars

like Moksha-mûlara (Max Müller), disregarding the tradiयनकृतव्याख्यामनादृत्य नवीनाना म्लेच्छमूलरादीनां tional and disjointed commentary of sayana! No, they do

? वाक्यं स्वीकुर्वन्ति। ते न केवल स्वयमेव प्रकृतार्थ ज्ञातुं not only make no eforts themselves to find out the real

meaning, but they are most anxious to prevent others, who यतन्तेऽपि तु प्रयत्नशीलानन्यानपि वारयितुमग्रसरा are fond of such studies. Does the opinion of such people

deserve any weight? We hope therefore that the intelligent भवन्ति । एतेषां वाक्यं किं प्रमाणवेन ग्रहीतव्यम् ।

translators may, without fail, reap the desired reward from तदेवमाशास्महे बुद्धिमन्तोऽनुवादकाःस्वारब्धे कर्मण्य- the labours in which they are engaged. भिलषितं फलं निर्बाधं साधयन्तु ॥ ये तु मन्यन्ते महाबुद्धिमता बलवत्प्रयत्नशालिनापि terpretation made without divine knowledge, is worthy of

And we should like to ask those who think that no in. दिव्यविज्ञान विनैव क्रियमाणं व्याख्यानं विश्वासार्ह any confidence, however learned and zealous the translator

may be,-" Tell us, does divine knowledge come from the न स्थात् तान्पृच्छामः, दिव्यविज्ञानं किं तावत् study of books, or is it to be gained by any other means?" शास्त्राभ्यसनादिभूतं वा उपायान्तरलभ्यं वा। द्वितीये surely there is no authority for the second opinion. But

if it comes from the study of books, then scholars like नास्ति प्रमाणम् । शास्त्राभ्यसनादिभूतं चेमोक्षमूलर- Moksha-mûlara (Max Müller) too, may acquire it. Nor is सदृशपण्डितानामपि सम्भवति । नापि युष्माकं सा

over, Sâyan'a does not always adopt the opinion of Yâska

in the interpretation of words; secondly, both Sâyan'a and व्याख्याने सायणो यास्कस्य मतं न स्वीकरोति । Yâska give sometimes, because they are uncertain themselves, द्वितीयतः तौ तु निश्चयाभावात् कस्यचित् पदस्य दयं sayama himself interprets the same word differently in

Sâyan'a translates : (५) नोऽस्मकं सम्बन्धिन ऋत्विज इति शेषः, ते “May our priests praise Indra ! O enemies, go away from ब्रुवन्तु इन्द्रं स्तुवन्तु, उत अपिच हे निदः हे निन्दितारः praise Indra), they who are always performing worship to

Moksha-milara (Max Miller) translates the same verses : गच्छत अन्य स्थानं यूयं ये तु इन्द्रमेव पूजयथ इति

“Whether our enemies say, “ Move away elsewhere, you

who offer worship to Indra only,' or whether, O mighty one, वदन्तु अस्माकं शत्रवः ।

book : “Though there are mistakes in Sayan'a's commentary,

his work is indispensable for the study of the Veda.” And, “सत्यपि दोषे सायणभाष्ये वेदाध्ययने तत्त्वतीवा- again, " Those who despise his commentary do not know that वश्यकमिति” । किञ्च “येतु तस्य व्याख्यानं समीचीन Sayana alone was our guide in learning the dificult language

Let this short notice of ours be judged without envy and मतामतं विचारणीयम, अविचाथैवान्येषामपशब्द- without prejudice! Not to judge, but to bring contempt प्रयोगेणावमाननाकरणन्तु नहि सभ्यानां रीतिरिति upon others by the use of bad language, is not the custom of

ings," a missionary says :-"I was much struck with this in
reading lately a Tamil Book, the product of a splendid Hindoo
mind, one hundred and fifty years ago. Let me give you a
free translation of a passage which I made at the time of
perusing it, so forcibly did it arrest my attention :- I yearn
for Him. Oh, ye Sun and Moon, tell me who set you in
your unvarying course of day and night? Do you know his
glory? Oh, thou blowing Wind, by whose power dost thou
wbirl through the realms of space ? Speak to me of Him.
Oh, ye Clouds, which come and drop in thirsty places your
genial rain, think and speak! Can you tell me the way in
which my Divine Master pours down, as freely as ye do,
His copious showers of grace ? Oh, thou incomprehensible
Sky, canst thou describe Him who transcends thy measureless

height? Oh, thou sounding Sea, thou of unutterable sub-
limity, who stretchest forth thy wave hands, say, who
established thy vast bounds ? Tell me, too, ye forest
birds with variegated wings, have ye ever gazed upon and
spoken with Him who is my lover, who dwelleth every-
where? If ye have, commune with me about Him."'"

- The Bride's Mirror is the title of a novel for Hindoo
ladies. It is written in the chastest colloquial style, and
depicts with close fidelity and artistic skill not merely the
everyday life of the Indian Mussulman, but that inner
domestic life from which he is so unwilling to draw the veil.
The publication of this work is a most remarkable incident
in the history of Hindoo literature. Sir William Muir and
Mr. Kempson vouch for the style, and the author, Mahomed
Nazir Ahmid, Settlement Officer at Jaloun, has received a
reward of 1,000 rupees from the Government, which has also
taken 2,000 copies of the work. - A new scheme of worship
