    Vedas by one whose professional work lies in a different direction. A bout four years ago, as I was reading theB hagavad Gita, it occurred to me that we might derive important conclusions from fche statement of Krishna that he wasM argashirsha of the months. This led me to inquire into the primitive Vedic calendar, and the result of four years labour is now placed before the public. The essay was originally written for theN inth Oriental Congress held in London last year. But it was found too large to be inserted in the proceedings wherein its summary alone is now included. I have had therefore to publish it separately, and in doing so I have taken the opportunity of incorporating into it such additions, alterations and modifications, as were suggested by further thought and discussion. The chief res alt of my inquiry would be evident from the title of the essay. The high antiquity of theE gyptian civilization is now generally admitted. But scholars still hesitate to place the commencement of the Vedic civilization earlier than 2400 B.C. I have endeavoured to show in the following pages that the traditions recorded in the Rigveda unmistakably point to a period not later than 4000 B.C., when the vernal equinox was in Orion, or, in other words, when theD og-star (or theD og as we have it in the Rigveda) commenced the equinoctial year.
