FOOTNOTES: 

 

[Footnote 4: These were certainly materialists who seemed to think that 

a bird in the hand was worth two in the bush.] 

 

[Footnote 5: Among the Hindoos the four classes of men are the Brahmans 

or priestly class, the Kshutrya or warlike class, the Vaishya or 

agricultural and mercantile class, and the Shoodra or menial class. The 

four stages of life are, the life of a religious student, the life of a 

householder, the life of a hermit, and the life of a Sunyasi or 

devotee.] 

 

[Footnote 6: Bali was a demon who had conquered Indra and gained his 

throne, but was afterwards overcome by Vishnu at the time of his fifth 

incarnation.] 

 

[Footnote 7: Dandakya is said to have abducted from the forest the 

daughter of a Brahman, named Bhargava, and being cursed by the Brahman, 

was buried with his kingdom under a shower of dust. The place was called 

after his name the Dandaka forest, celebrated in the Ramayana, but now 

unknown.] 

 

[Footnote 8: Ahalya was the wife of the sage Gautama. Indra caused her 

to believe that he was Gautama, and thus enjoyed her. He was cursed by 

Gautama and subsequently afflicted with a thousand ulcers on his body.] 

 

[Footnote 9: Kichaka was the brother-in-law of King Virata, with whom 

the Pandavas had taken refuge for one year. Kichaka was killed by Bhima, 

who assumed the disguise of Draupadi. For this story the Mahabarata 

should be referred to.] 

 

[Footnote 10: The story of Ravana is told in the Ramayana, which with the 

Mahabarata form the two great epic poems of the Hindoos; the latter was 

written by Vyasa, and the former by Valmiki.]
