Maurice Bloomfield was a professor at John's Hopkins University and a great authority on Sanskrit literature and comparative linguistics. In this paper he discusses several then-new discoveries in Hindu mythology and literature. Among the topics discussed are the myth of the heavenly eye, the fee of the priests, and a series of words of cultural or philological significance. This essay, though somewhat disjointed, offers interesting bits of information of interest to linguists and students of Indian culture.
