In the Rig Veda, the word asura is used frequently as an epithet for various deities. Rather, this word generally in used in later Sanskrit as a class of demons who are enemies of the gods. A careful study of evolution from the Vedic period. reprints a classic.

Being and Meaning is a comparative study of the concepts of Being and Language in Bhartrhari and Martin Heidegger, emphasising the universality of their thinking. Language in Bhartrhari’s vision is the medium of the self-expression for the Ultimate Reality (Sabdatattva). In Heidegger’s thinking language is the Original Utterance (Sage) which Being speaks to man. Being expresses itself in language, and phenomena in the world occur simultaneously with the occurrence of language. Bhartrhari and Heidegger lead one to the belonging togetherness of Being and being beyond all conceptualizing, transcending the bounds of Orient and Occident.
