  • Description
    In the forest of insecurities, is it possible to discover humanity through pleasure? Can we stop seeing each other as predator, prey, rival or mate, and rediscover ourselves as lovers? Does the divine reside in sensual delight, in emotional intimacy and in aesthetic experience? Yes, yes, yes. That is the promise of the Bhagavata. The Bhagavata is the story of Krishna, known as Shyam to those who find beauty, wisdom and love in his dark complexion. It is the third great Hindu epic after the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. However, this narration was composed in fragments over thousands of years, first as the Harivamsa, then as the Bhagavata Purana, and finally as the passionate songs of poet-sages in various regional languages. This book seamlessly weaves the story from Krishna's birth to his death, or rather from his descent to the butter-smeared world of happy women to his ascent from the blood-soaked world of angry men.

    Super!

    excellent book. This is actually mine first mythological book from devdutt series. it is actually a mega epic . I am completely mesmerized by the author's way of narration. He built things on a perfect platform and seamlessly took us on a magnificent journey of the life of lord krishna. The additional notes provided by the author are like icing on top of a delicious cake. I recommend to pls refer this book if you are a mythology lover.

    Simply awesome

    Is a very well researched book, discusses avatar, newborn, infant, toddler and right down to the charioteer and elder. It does feel similar to Jaya and Sita in look and feel and writing style, of course. Devdutt Pattanaik really knows our history. This book is a very good reference on Shyam, as Krishna is referred to several times. A 12 page author's note precedes the book and talks about the context, and how the images of Shyam, how he looked like, was passed from Dwarka to Vraja, and how Hi...

    Worth every penny

    this is one hell of a beautiful book to add to your book shelf. The story of Krishna from a cowherd to a mighty king. The illustrations are just icing on the cake. Its such a beautiful book I cannot stop drooling over. Its definitely a good gift for children too.
