Ashwini Kumars: Tales from the Vedas (Paperback Comic Book)
Ashwini Kumars: Tales from the Vedas (Paperback Comic Book)
Description
Back of the Book

In the Rigveda there are several hymns addressed to the Ashwins who are the divine physicians. Judging from the number of these hymns, the twin deities seem to be next in importance only to Indra, Agni and Soma.

Most of the riks or hymns invoking the Ashwins are either an appeal to them for help or panegyrics for the help rendered to men in distress.

We also learn from the hymns that the twins are inseparable. They are extremely fond of honey and even carry it wherever they go, distributing it to bees and mortals.

The two stories in this Chitra Katha are developed solely form Vedic literature.
