He had studied other Hindu scriptures as well, some of which he had translated and published, including an exhaustive commentary on Patanjali’s Yogasutra.

After a few years he was shifted to the Publications Division of the same Ministry as Deputy Director, and then on to the finance Ministry, where he worked as Financial Advisor to the Director-General of Supply and Disposal. He had always been averse to personal publicity, “An author should be judged by his work, and not by his personal qualifications.” Was his firm view.
