The Descent of the Sun

(1903)
A novel by

 
Excerpt from The Descent of the Sun: A Cycle of Birth Here is a fairy tale which I found in an old Hindoo manuscript. As the title shows, it is a solar myth. Literally translated, its name is: The Glory of the Going Down of the Sun. But this is only the exoteric, physical envelope of the inner, mystical meaning, which is: The Divine Lustre of the Descent (Incarnation) of Him Who took Three Steps: i.e. Wishnu, or the Sun, the later Krishna, or Hindoo Apollo. And this epithet of the Sun is explained by the well-known passage in the Rig-Weda (I. 22. 17), 'Three steps did Wishnu stride: thrice did he set down his foot.' A mythological expression for the rise, the zenith, and the set of the Sun. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
