Andhaka - The Offspring of Shiva and Parvati (Paperback Comic Book)
Andhaka - The Offspring of Shiva and Parvati (Paperback Comic Book)
Description
Back of the Book

The story of Andhaka, the offspring of Shiva and Parvati, is given in the Shiva and Vamana Puranas. Andhaka is born blind and hideous in form, from the sweat of Parvati's hand and the heat of Shiva's eye. When given away as a boon to the asura king, Hiranyaksha, Andhaka is surrounded by the crudeness and arrogance of the asuras through his growing years.

Since his origins are divine, there is a different destiny in store for him. Through a boon, he gains physical beauty, but his heart continues to harbour evil.

His parents are instrumental in bringing about his ultimate spiritual transformation. Andhaka's story aptly traces the journey of the soul and its ordeals through fire before it attains liberation.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
