Aniruddha A Tale from the Bhagwat
Aniruddha A Tale from the Bhagwat
Description
Aniruddha was the son of Pradyumna and grandson of Krishna. Usha, the daughter of an Asura named Bana, saw him in a dream and became anxious to know if there was such a person. Her favourite companion, Chitralekha, drew the portraits of many gods and men. At last when she drew the portrait of Aniruddha, Usha recognised him. Chitralekha set out to bring Aniruddha to Usha. Then followed a series of adventures and a great battle between the Yadavas and the Asuras.

The Puranas and the Brahmanas (Ancient Indian scriptures) record many conflicts between the Asuras and the Devas on the one hand and the Asuras and Aryan clans like the Yadavas and Pauravas, on the other.

According to the Taittiriya Brahmana, Prajapati (Brahma) created the Asuras with his breath (asu). The word, 'Asura', has long been used as a general name for the enemies of the gods. A different derivation has been found for the word, 'Asura'. The source is no longer 'asu' (breath) but the initial 'a' is taken as a negative prefix and a-sura signifies 'not a sura (god)'.

It is interesting to note that 'asuras' were not always annihilated but were often absorbed by marriages and alliances.

The story as narrated in this book is based on the Bhagawat Purana.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
