Description
Journey into the amazing world of Hindu mythology with Devdutt Pattanaik Why are most temples dedicated to Vishnu, Shiva or the goddess, but not to Brahma or Indra? How are an asura, rakshasa, yaksha and pishacha different from each other? Why did the Pandavas find themselves in naraka rather than swarga? Over several months, EPIC Channel's ground-breaking show Devlok with Devdutt Pattanaik has enthralled countless viewers. Here, finally, is the book based on the first series of the ever-popular show, which will take you on a scintillating tour through the myriad stories, symbols and rituals that form the basis of Hindu culture. Prepare to be surprised and thrilled as Devdutt narrates magical tales about larger-than-life figures - gods, goddesses, demi-gods and demons who you thought you knew well but didn't. Learn about the intricacies of Hindu thought as he explains the origin and meaning of different creation myths, and throws light on why we believe in a cyclical - not linear - concept of time. This book is your perfect introduction to the endlessly fascinating world of Hindu mythology.

greatest book in hindu mythology (in English)

the reading is still in progress but since i had seen most of the episodes on EPIC channel over the last few months i can vouch for the information packed in these few pages.
i have read several books by mr pattanaik over the years: JAYA, SITA, MYTH vs MYTHYA, PREGNANT KING, etc. so i knew that his lucid presentations in extremely simple language appeals to the not-so-scholarly readers like many of us.
i recommend this book to everyone with a desire to know about hindu mythology and its deepe...
