We cited Danielou’s book yesterday, with a caution…check out the other reviews, especially the one above….we advocated tearing this book to pieces, but at the same time remaining mindful of the pitfalls in Indian religious history….

at location 586 of the Kindle edition, the author has a savage attack on buddhism as a violent and savage colonialism, consider again the case of Ashoka….

his claim for the antiquity of indic religion should be taken seriously whatever the case with his specifics…But his views on the cycles of history is crackpot….
