The Great body of Hindu Philosophy is based upon six sets of very concise Aphorisms. Without a commentary, the Aphorisms are scarcely intelligible; they being designed, not so much to communicate the doctrine of the particular school, as to aid, by the briefest possible suggestions, the memory of him to whom the doctrine shall have been already communicated. To this end, they are admirably adapted; and, this being their end, are the obscurity which must needs attach to them, in the eyes of the uninstructed, is not chargeable upon them as a fault. The Pages, now submitted to the criticism of the pandits who read English, invite discussion.
