Synopsis: Philosophy, ritual, and mythology are the three pillars of all ancient religions. But in India in particular, mythology has been an extremely important medium for teaching abstract spiritual truths, and it has had a profound influence not only on the religious traditions of the country but also on Indian society.
Myths and Legends of the Hindus and Buddhists includes stories from both the great epics of India (the Mahabharata and the Ramayana), and through these stories are introduced two great Avataras of the Hindu tradition: Rama and Krishna. In addition, this volume includes some charming tales of gods and goddesses from the Puranas.Also included are stories from the Jataka depicting the different births of Buddha prior to his enlightenment. The common message running through these stories is: No matter how hopeless things may seem, eventually righteousness prevails over unrighteousness and virtue defeats vice.
Winner of the Best Published Book award of the 2001-2002 Kolkata book fair, Myths and Legends of the Hindus and Buddhists includes more than 30 color illustrations. A truly beautiful book!
