PÓgina 147 - ... all extent ; spreads undivided, operates unspent ; breathes in our soul, informs our mortal part, as full, as perfect, in a hair as heart; as full, as perfect, in vile man that mourns, as the rapt seraph that adores and burns; to him no high, no low, no great, no small; He fills, he bounds, connects, and equals all.
PÓgina 269 - ... moved forward to the house of the bride, at which place the company entered a large and splendidly illuminated area before the house, covered with an awning, where a great multitude of friends, dressed in their best apparel, were seated upon mats. The bridegroom was carried in the arms of a friend, and placed...
PÓgina 216 - In sight of Juggernaut; \2thJune. Many thousands of pilgrims have accompanied us for some days past. They cover the road before and behind as far as the eye can reach. At nine o'clock this morning, the temple of Juggernaut appeared in view at a great distance. When the multitude first saw it, they gave a shout, and fell to the ground and worshipped. I have heard nothing to-day but shouts and acclamations by the successive bodies of pilgrims. From the place where I now stand I have a view of a host...
PÓgina 330 - For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
PÓgina 212 - The number of temples is very great, mostly small and stuck like shrines in the angles of the streets, and under the shadow of the lofty houses. Their forms, however, are not ungraceful, and...
PÓgina 218 - I have seen Juggernaut. The scene at Buddruck is but the vestibule to Juggernaut. No record of ancient or modern history can give, I think, an adequate idea of this valley of death ; it may be truly compared with the ' Valley of Hinnom.' The idol called Juggernaut has been considered as the Moloch of the present age ; and he is justly so named, for the sacrifices offered up to him by self-devotement are not less criminal, perhaps not less numerous, than those recorded of the Moloch of Canaan.
PÓgina 146 - Great in the earth as in the ethereal frame, Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze, Glows in the stars, and blossoms in the trees : Lives through all life, extends through all extent, Spreads undivided, operates unspent ; Breathes in our soul, informs our mortal part, As full, as perfect, in a hair as heart ; As full, as perfect, in vile man that mourns, As the rapt Seraph that adores and burns ; To him no high, no low, no great, no small : He fills, he bounds, connects, and equals all.
PÓgina 212 - The material of the building is a very good stone from Chunar, but the Hindoos here seem fond of painting them a deep red colour, and indeed of covering the more conspicuous parts of their houses with paintings in gaudy colours of flower-pots, men, women, bulls, elephants, gods and goddesses, in all their many-formed, manyheaded, many-handed, and many-weaponed varieties.
PÓgina 340 - I do not by any means assent to the pictures of depravity and general worthlessness which some have drawn of the Hindoos. They are decidedly, by nature, a mild, pleasing, and intelligent race ; sober, parsimonious, and, where an object is held out to them, most industrious and persevering.
PÓgina 268 - After waiting two or three hours, at length, near midnight, it was announced, in the very words of Scripture, ' Behold, the bridegroom cometh ; go ye out to meet him.
