Hindu Gods And Goddesses
Hindu Gods And Goddesses
Description
Extracts from Reviews

"This elegantly got up handy volume of a couple of hundred pages draws the reader into a fascinating labyrinth of symbols and mythology, philosophic speculation and spiritual insight.

Swami Harshananda presents here quite a comprehensive spectrum of the VIP's in the Hindu Pantheon. His erudition sits lightly on him for though full of facts and ideas the book -is almost conversational in style.

After dealing succinctly with the multiplicity of divine forms, Swami Harshananda underlines that all of them ultimately point to the indivisible Infinite. Altogether a delightful volume to read and to treasure."

-THE HINDU 9-6-1981

"The author finds a successful clue to the understanding of the Hindu pantheon in the employment of symbolic interpretation. According to that clue, he elaborates the significance of divine figures and forms, ornaments and weapons, vehicles and retinue. He interprets the bewildering variety of Hindu gods on the principle that "the gods are doorways leading to one Godhead." Once their "symbolic significance" is understood, he maintains that the gods and goddesses can help a great deal in meditative and contemplative exercises. They can lead the aspirant to 'more profound levels of Spiritual experience.'

"One of the important features of the book is the copious illustrative sketches of the different gods, and goddesses; they are simple and graphic. They enhance the usefulness of the book to the general readers. It deserves a wide audience."

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)
Hithesh, USA
I have received the book Evolution II.  Thank you so much for all of your assistance in making this book available to me.  You have been so helpful and kind.

I Gede Tunas
You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
