An Experiment, scanned text: Prem Nath Bazaz
I have three scanned chapters from a fascinating and rare book on the Gita in Indian history.
This book is unique in its ‘cut the bullshit’ history of the relationship of Buddhism and Neo-Brahminism in the post-Axial Age India. The book has many problems, and might be challenged by conventional scholarship, which, however, is highly deceptive.
The scanning is so-so, at best, and I am going to put in three posts, to check how good/bad it looks, and also to use the WordPress software to strip some of the strange features of the scanjob. Then do some corrections and then make a web page out of it.
It is a pity the book is out of print, but its radical viewpoint dooms it for conventional histories, mostly lies.
Try to read around the garbled passages.
It is a chilling tale, one that those who naively enter Indian spiritual paths should be aware of, as they become disciples of these Brahmin gurus.
