'Brahmans' are the one of the earliest category of Hindu scriptures. 'Satpatha Brahman' is the most famous among them. 'Panchvinsh Brahman' belongs this category. 'Vedic Index" vol.I&II.by Macdonell often quotes from this book. Some of the references quoted from this book by Mcdonell are quite perturbing to me particularly about a king who murdered his priest because he insisted to worship Indra.

I want to verify this from the original text of 'Panchvinsh Brahman'. May anyone help me by suggesting it's availability online or a book form that can be purchased online or even the publisher where this book may be available.

    The original publisher above is Baptist Mission Press. Their translations were only made to put Hinduism in a bad light and any translation with their endorsement is highly suspect. – Swami Vishwananda Nov 1 '17 at 3:55

  • @SwamiVishwananda Thanks for forewarning. I am well aware of inefficacy English translation has of Hindu scripture in general set aside their intention , particularly in case of RigVeda translations. Do you have any idea where the orignal may be available ? Read I mentioned 'original' in the question. – B.N. Bhaskar Nov 1 '17 at 15:27
