প্রথম বারের বিজ্ঞাপন

বাঙ্গালীর স্ত্রী অনেক অবস্থাতেই বাঙ্গালীর প্রধান সহায়। অনেক সময় নয়।
সমাজবিপ্লব অনেক সময় আত্মপীড়ন মাত্র। বিদ্রোহীরা আত্মঘাতী।
ইংরেজরা বাঙ্গালা দেশ অরাজকতা হইতে উদ্ধার করিয়াছেন।
এই সকল কথা এই গ্রন্থে বুঝান গেল।

দ্বিতীয় বারের বিজ্ঞাপন

প্রথম বারের বিজ্ঞাপনে যাহা লিখিয়াছিলাম, তাহার টীকাস্বরূপ কোন বিজ্ঞ সমালোচকের কথা অপর পৃষ্ঠে উদ্ধৃত করিলাম।

The leading idea of the plot is this—should the national mind feel justified in harbouring violent thoughts against the British Government ? or to present the question in another form, is the establishment of English supremacy providential in any sense ? or to put it in a still more final and conclusive form, with what purpose and with what immediate end in view did providence send the British to this conntry ?

True Hinduism is grounded on knowledge, and not on works. Knowledge is of two kinds — external and internal. The internal knowledge constitutes the chief part of Hinduism. But internal knowledge oannot grow unless there is a development of the external knowledge. The spiritual cannot be known unless you know the material. External knowledge has for a long time disappeared from the country, and with it has vanished the Arya faith. To bring about a revival, we should first of all disseminate physical or external knowledge. Now there is none to teach that ; we ourselves oannot teach it. We must needs get it from other countries. The English are profound masters of physical knowledge, and they are apt teachers too. Let us then make them kings. English education will give our men a knowledge of physical science, and this will enable them to grapple with the problems of their inner nature. Thus the chief obstacles to the dissemination of Arya faith will be removed, and true religion will sparkle into life spontaneously and of its own accord. The British
