About this Item

Contents: Preface. Introduction. 1. Visnu in the Vedas. 2. Visnu : the great God of Hindu pantheon. 3. Visnu in epics and Puranas. 4. Visnu and the Bhakti movement. 5. Laksmi: the Goddess of wealth and fortune. 6. Avataras of Visnu. 7. Sri Jagannatha. Bibliography. Index. The treatise deals with the concept which men entertain the divine or supernatural powers on the one hand and on the other, that sense of dependence of human being on those powers which find expression in various forms of worship. Visnu is a great God of the Hindu Pantheon. In the Hindu religion, Visnu, though a deity of highest importance in the Brahamanas, epics and Puranas, occupies but a subordinate position in the Rgveda. In the Rgveda, he is celebrated in several hymns. His anthropomorphic traits are frequently mentioned. Visnu appeared on earth in several forms. He took incarnations such as Matsya (fish), Kurma (tortoise), Varaha (boar), Narasimha (man-lion), Vamana (dwarf), Parasurama (Rama with axe), Rama (Raghava Rama), Krsna-Balarama, Buddha and Kalki as a saviour of the mankind or as a destroyer of demons or evil forces. Sri or Laksmi either in her individual capacity or dependant as consort of Visnu has gained unprecedented popularity with other Goddesses. She as Visnu sakti established herself among the vaisnavas. The role played by Visnu in the religious life of the people of India ever the ages has been alienated in this volume in a lucid manner. 276 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 50195
