Bahubali (Comic Book)
Description
From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the country and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.

Back of the Book

Bahubali was the son of Rishabhadeva, the first of the 24 Tirthankaras revered by the Jains. In his hour of triumph, Bahubali gave away his kingdom to the very brother he had defeated in single combat.

Centuries later, Chavundaraya, the commander-in-chief of a king of the Ganga dynasty, was inspired to have a 57-foot-high image of Bahubali carved out of a huge rock at Shravana Belagola in Karnataka. Since Chavundaraya was also known as Gommata, the image came to be known as Gommateshwara.

Shravana Belagola is now an important pilgrim centre. Millions of people flock to it to witness the 'Maha Mastaka Abhisheka' when the gigantic image is given a ceremonial bath and anointed once every 12 years.

The material for this Amar Chitra Katha has been drawn from Pampa's Adipurana – the first ever work of poetry in Kannada (9th century AD) and the Bhujabali Charita of Panchabana (17th century AD).

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
