VENKATESWARA UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR OF INDIAN HISTORY, MYSORE LONGMANS, GREEN AND CO. LONDON n NEW YORK n TORONTO CALCUTTA n BOMBAY n MADRAS 1928 Made in Great Britain TO MY MOTHER PREFACE IT is the aim of this work to describe and interpret the genius of India, and explain her contribution to the worlds culture.

It is my conviction that the stream of Indian culture has flowed through the ages, reinforced by the Time-Spirit at every stage, without being untrue to itself or losing its soul in the sweeping current. Each volume therefore deals with an aspect of culture from the evolutionary as well as from the comparative point of view. The present volume deals with that supreme gift of India to the world Education in the fullest and the highest sense of the term. Subsequent volumes of the work are devoted to Art, Philosophy, Religion, and Public Life.

My obligations to scholars, are so wide and deep as to baffle attempt at detailed enumeration here. Translations of Indian texts are in many cases my own, and I must accept the responsibility even where I have based them on the accepted render ings of well-known scholars. My thanks are due to the Mysore University for subsidizing the publication of this volume, and to viii PREFACE its learned Vice-Chancellor, Sir B. N.
