By Arthur Anthony Macdonell (1854-1930)

This section contains excerpts from A Vedic Reader for Students authored by Arthur Anthony Macdonell. The content for this section is made available by www.sacred-texts.com which is worth a visit. I have classified and reorganized the content to provide meaningful interpretation without altering any of the original translator's meaning and intent. Any feedback ?
