Mythology of Shiva and Shakti
Description
About The Book

Spiritually, philosophically and materially too Shiva and Shakti are immense. They together and independently manifest in different forms escaping single definition. Efforts are made here to explain their expansive cosmic natures with the help of their respective meaningful mythologies. A clssic of its kind the book will guide readers to India’s religious culture with history of thousands of years, reaching Indus civilization and even far beyond it in terms of time.

 

About The Author

A scholar of international repute M.L. Varadpande is known for his insightful study of Indian art, literature, culture and mythology. His books are recognized among scholars for the original interpretations and profound study of available date. His major works are:

Gods, Goddesses and Demons Apsara in Indian Art and Literature Cult of Joy Love in Ancient India History of Indian Theatre Vol. I, II, III.

Religion and Theatre Distionary of Indian Culture Ganesha in Indian Mythology Vishnu and His Incarnations Woman in Indian sculpture Concise dictionary of Indian Theatre.

 

Introduction

Among many revelations that Mohenjo-daro and Harappa have had in store for us, none perhaps is more remarkable than the discovery that Shaivism has a history going back to Chalcolithic age and perhaps even further still, and that it takes its place as the most ancient living faith in the world.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
