“Vedic scholars will find this concise but rather discursive study of much interest; but it is of greater importance to the historians of Indian thought and to the anthropologist. Copious illustrations of the early Aryans’ expressions of their belief in ‘power-substantives’ will be certain to stimulate responses in both spheres.. We are taken on a tour of the power-substances, and incidentally given helpful information and other key expressions of Vedic sociological as well as religious vocabulary. The essay contains shrewd remarks on primitive but constant Indian ideas and is adorned with comparisons with Semitic and other foreign usages.” – Extracted from the Book Review by J.D.M.D., published in the Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
