Knappert, Jan: Indian Mythology


1 varastossa

Osastot: ,


”Indian culture is vastly different to that of the West: while the West is largely secular, India is home to many religions, each with its own cosmology, philosophy and mythology. In this comprehensive A-Z guide, the myths of Hinduism are dealt with most fully, as this is India’s most widespread religion with the largest mythology, though there are entries relating to other religions too, such as Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Ahmadiism and Sufism. The book catalogues the gods of the Hindu pantheon – Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Indra, and many others, including ancient nature gods and planetary gods; it tells of their various appearances on earth, such as Vishnu-Krishna sporting with the cow-girls, or serving as Arjuna’s charioteer in the epic battle of the Mahabharata; and it recounts demons of vast power and malevolence, and humans caught up in the cosmic interplay.”
