Mythology of Shiva and Shakti
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.

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 :)

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.
