(Respecting the intellectual property of others is utmost important to us, we make every effort to make sure we only link to legitimate sites, such as those sites owned by authors and publishers. If you have any questions about these links, please contact us.)
The Great God is Shiwa, whose matted hair catches and conducts the descent of the river of life in its passage from heaven to earth. Also to be found in the hair of Shiwa, adorning his brow like a diadem, is the crescent moon. This represents the cup of offering which brings about all manifestation and the passage of time in which each manifestation occurs.
About the Author
F. W. Bain was a Professor of History and Economics at Deccan College in Poona in the early twentieth century. Each of the books in this series is said to be translated from the original manuscripts, which were apparently in Sanskrit. Professor Bain's erudite yet sensitive introductions and footnotes indicate his extensive scholarship in both the Easter and Western traditions.
