Example text

Songs in b 2 xii INTRODUCTORY REMARKS praise of Krishnii are very common amongst this sect; and sometimes an enthusiast falls to the ground while singing, and exhibits all the symptoms of superstitious frenzy. These persons reject many of the Hindoo ceremonies; but they repeat the name of Krishnu, worship the common images of this god, and observe the national festivals to his honour. Some individuals are directed in their religious duties by the Hindoo writings : but the great body are enthusiasts, following the impulse of feelings enkindled by their own impure imaginations.

Vishnoo is sometimes called the household god. 3. Shivii is a white man with five faces and four arms, riding1 on a bull. In one hand he holds an axe, as the destroyer of the wicked; in another a deer, alluding to a sacrifice, when the deer, fleeing from the sacrificial knife, took refuge with Shivii; with another hand he is bestowing a blessing, and with the last forbidding fear. Four of his faces are designed to point out the sixty-four tuntriis, and the other a different tuntrii. The bull is a form of Vishnoo, as the personification of religion; its four feet are, religious austerities, purity, compassion, and truth.

See the article S56ryii. Somu b, the moon. We do not perceive the least agreement betwixt this god and Diana. The Hindoo feasts are regulated by the revolutions of the moon, but Somu is not greatly honoured in the Hindoo mythology, being esteemed a malignant planet, as is also Munguluc, or Mars. BooddhuA, or Mercury, is a fortunate planet; and so is Vrihusputee", or Jupiter, who is the preceptor of the gods. Shookru f, or Venus, preceptor to the giants, is also a fortunate planet. This god is represented as blind of one eye, Shunee%, or Saturn, the son of Sooryu, an evil planet.
