Professor Dowson's Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology and Religion
is now offered not only in a new format, but in a fresh,
state-of-the-art typeset as well. Incorporated here, in addition, are
standard, meticulously worked-out diacritical marks -- as rather
mechanical aids in comprehending the transliteration of Indic sounds,
more specifically of the Sanskrit alphabet, into English.
In its alphabetically arranged articles of varying lengths, the
Dictionary tries to encompass the vast Hindu pantheon, in all its
complexity and symbolic/metaphorical representations. Covering a whole
mix of mythological characters: gods and demons, prajapatis and
raksasas, it also presents explanatory accounts of important
events/episodes, legends, literary works, and even geographical locales,
associated with Hindu myths and religious beliefs.
Acclaimed worldwide ever since its first appearance, the
Dictionary continues to appeal to scholars and general readers seeking
to discover for themselves the awesome world of Hindu mythology and the
grand cosmogonic design it unveils.
