The Book of Shiva

Quantity:

Shiva: Destroyer and Protector, Supreme Ascetic and Lord of the Universe. He is Ardhnarishwara, half man and half woman. He is Neelakantha, who drank poison to save the three worlds-and yet, when crazed with grief at the death of Sati, set about destroying them. Shiva holds within him the answers to some of the greatest dilemmas that have perplexed mankind. Who is Shiva? Why does he roam the world as a naked ascetic covered with ash? What was the tandava? What is the stroy behind the worship of the linga and what vision of the world does it signify? Namita Gokhale examines these questions and many others that lie within the myriad stories about Shiva. Even as she unravels his complexities, she finds a philosophy and world-view that is terrifying and yet life-affirming-an outlook that is to many the essence of Indian thought.

About the Author:

Namita Gokhale is the author of Paro: Dreams of Passion; Gods, Graves and Grandmother; A Himalayan Love Story and The Book of Shadows. She is also a regular contributor to major newspapers and magazines. She live in Delhi.
