A profound exploration of Hinduism
Hinduism is quite possibly the world’s oldest religion and it is populated by countless gods, from elephant-headed Ganesha to the fierce, blue Kali. Hindu Myths provides an excellent introduction to the religion’s varying tales of creation, major texts, and principal concerns. This fascinating book explores such classics as the Ramayana and the Mahabharata—the latter being the longest-known epic in history. It also delves into the puranas, stories where the gods battle for supremacy; the deities, including Brahma, Vishnu, and Lakshmi; and personalities such as Krishna, Lakshmana, and Hanuman.
Illustrated with 180 photographs, artworks, and maps, Hindu Myths is an engaging exploration of a fascinating and highly influential religion.
