Myths & Legends of India presents a rich and dazzling collection of 46 tales taken from the sacred books of Hinduism - from the ancient hymns of the Vedas to the Ramayana and Mahabharata epics and on to the later Laws of Manu and the Puranas. A veritable kaleidoscope of Hindu mythology as it developed over a period of 3,000 years!
Tales of gods and goddesses, demons, rishis, saints and sages in all their varying moods... and tales of ordinary men and women, their hopes and fears and their joys and sorrows.
The book concludes with explanatory sections on each of the legends, a reading list and a subject index.
Reading this book is a great way to get a good feel for the riches of Hinduism!
