Hindu mythology is a fascinating world of legends and stories centred
around a sophisticated structure and hierarchy of deities and their
worship. The many gods and goddesses, depicted in myriad forms in art
and literature, constitute a sacred and complex subject of interesting
study. The book, Hindu Mythology attempts to offer a systematic and
complete account of the names and character of the deities of Hinduism
and their relationship with one another.
The book, typed afresh, studies the main attributes of the
deities and recounts myths associated with their origin, nature,
function and worship. For the purpose, the deities are classified into
the major deities of the Vedic Age and those of the Puranic Age, and the
inferior deities which include demigods, sacred plants, animals and
birds, supernatural beings and minor deities like Sitala and Manasa.
Based on authoritative sources, the reliable accounts are supported by
well-drawn illustrations of the deities that add to the appeal of the
work. The work involves clear explanation of terms and concepts in a
fluent language.
The volume will prove to be an interesting reference work for
scholars and students of Hindu mythology and will attract general
readers keen to acquire information on the subject.
