About the Book:

Everything in this world is divine to see which one needs a divine sight. It is blessed by the gods when prayed to. God is one who looks ordinary but shows all signs of divinity.

Some scholars explain various gods as symbols of various attributes or qualities. They don't believe them to be historic characters. Whereas Puranas accept the existence of their domains and so their being historic characters in that sense.

Puranas present Shiva-Parvati as parents of the world and the symbols of faith and belief. Their younger son Ganesha is religious trouble-shooter and first-of-all worshipable among gods. The belief is that Shiva took in-carnation as Hanumana when Rama took birth.

All the three Hindu gods fulfil all the wishes instantly made by their devotees.

This book reveals the characters and the miracle acts of the three gods.

I pay my humble respects and obeisance to Parvati and Shiva who are symbols of faith and belief. Without their blessings one can feel the presence of God within oneself.

He has elephant head, is served by super natural powers, eats berries with relish and he destroys all glitches to smoothen the passage of all noble deeds. I pray to him.

I pay my deepest respect to Hanumana who is incredibly powerful, gleams like gold, destroys demons, is the best of all the sages, embodiment of all sublime qualities and who is the dearest messenger of Lord Rama.
