Indian Myth and Legend deals with the myths and legends of India,
which survive in the rich and abundant-storehouse of Sanskrit literature. The
reader is introduced to the various sacred works of the Hindus. The ancient
forest sages and poets of India invested the legendery themes and traditional
beliefs with beautiful symbolism and used them as mediums for speculative
thought and profound spiritual teaching. These ennobling ideas are still a
potent culturing influence in the domestic, social and religious lives of
millions of Indians.
