  (35) Max Müller. A paid employee, who translated the Rigved in a demeaning style. The hidden secrets of his life.
Max Müller was a British agent, especially employed (in 1847) to write the translations of the Vedas in such a demeaning way so that the Hindus should lose faith in them.
Max Müller was paid £4 per sheet of his writing which comes to £800 of today (1999).
Max Müller’s letters dated August 25, 1856 and December 16, 1868 reveal the fact that he was desperate to bring Christianity into India so that the religion of the Hindus should be doomed.

 Max Mueller   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Born in 1823 as the son of the celebrated German poet Wilhelm Mueller in a city called Dessau, in the east of Germany, Max Mueller studied classical and modern linguistics, ethnology and psychology at the University of Leipzig until 1943.
By this time Mueller had already published another controversial work with the title ‘The History of Ancient Sanskrit Literature’, which corresponded to his attitude that the discovery of Sanskrit is “to make the mind of man wider, his heart larger and his sympathies world-embracing”.
Mueller was devoted to his idea that the science of religion, linguistics, philosophy and, above all, Indology should not develop into a domain of a few specialists and remain isolated from the ordinary people and from all affairs of human life.

Following a particularly hectic combat, Max, enthused over the early successes of the single seater pilots like Buddecke, Boelcke, Immelmann and von Althaus, applied to his C.O. for a transfer to single-seaters, but Rutz refused to release him since he was one of the key pilots of the unit.

 Max Muller
Max Muller was a strong, loud, and sometimes lone voice in many of the major intellectual and political debates of his time, especially over the implications of the reigning Indo-European (or Aryan) linguistic theories on the legitimacy of British colonial rule.
As a result, those that have been included represent a mere sampling of his voluminous output, but a sampling, nevertheless, that pres­ents to the reader the range of Muller's research interests in the origins of language, mythology, and religion.
In addition, in view of Muller's wide-ranging interests in the comparative study of religion, mythology, folklore, linguistics, metaphysics, and human cognition, the selections in this "essential Max Muller" should be of interest to scholars and students in fields as diverse as religious studies, philosophy, anthropology, early linguistic theory, and the history of Western ideas.

Fredrich Max Mueller (1823-1900) was born in Dessau and educated in Leipzig, where he learned Sanskrit and translated the Hitopadesa of Pandita Visnu Sarma before coming to England in 1846.

The distinguished Sanskritist Max Muller delivered last year before the University of Glasgow a series of lectures -- called Gifford Lectures -- upon Religions, and made the following remarks about Buddhism which will be of interest: --
The essence of Buddhist morality is a belief in Karma, that is, of work done in this or in a former life, which must go on producing effects till the last penny is paid.
But who, asks Muller, has the right so to narrow the definition of the word religion that it should cease to be applicable to Buddhism, which is the creed of the majority of mankind?

Max Müller, editor of the Vedas, was the most important Sanskritist of the nineteenth century and arguably its major figure in the study of religion as well.
Despite the naivety of his ideas about religion and his failure to formulate a clear thesis of language origin, Müller was the first to conceive an originary anthropology that gives language and religion equal weight.
