Description:     

Not much is known about Rev. Arthur H. Ewing (1864–1912). He was a prominent Presbyterian missionary and academic who resided in Allahabad, India. He has left us three articles, the present one, the ‘Çāradā-tilaka Tantra’ (J. of the American Oriental Society, 1902, 65-76)) and ‘A message from Southern Asia’ (The Church and Missionary Education, 1908, 88094).
The present one explores the origin and estimates the values of the Hindu explanations and definitions of the series of terms comprising Prāṇa or vital breaths. It provides a rare analysis of the question of proper interpretation and translation of the various terms. As such, it is a fundamental work for all those seeking a deeper understanding of the concepts pertaining to psycho-physiology as understood in Hindu texts.
