The sacred tales and heroic epics of India have been passed down from one generation to the next, weaving a powerful cultural heritage and sense of history for the diverse peoples of that nation. These ancient narratives of creation, destruction, love and war are personified and populated by such gods as Brahma the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer. Thrilling stories in their own right, these myths are also still closely intertwined with the religions of today. Concentrating mainly on tales from the Hindu mythology, the questions of who we are and how we came to be are explored and retold within this fascinating and resourceful book.
Part of a series on The World’s Greatest Myths and Legends, these books capture the mystery and drama of ancient legends through all the key stories and folk tales featuring gods, heroes, monsters and animals, as well as common themes such as creation, love, death and courage. Each book features an introduction to the history, landscape, characters and culture of the mythology.
