Gitas in the Mahabharata and the Puranas
Gitas in the Mahabharata and the Puranas
Description
From the Jacket

This book brings out all the fourteen unexplored Gitas besides the Bhagavad-Gita and the Anugita in the Mahabharata and ten Gitas in the Puranas to the forefront for the sake of researchers in the field of the Bhagavad-Gita. The Gitas in the Mahabharata on the whole differ from those in the Puranas in form and character. There seems to be no set pattern for the Gita in the Mahabharata whereas the later Puranas seems to have added a Gita resembling the Bhagavad-Gita in all its aspects to enhance its value.

The theme of the Gitas in the Mahabharata differs while the theme of the Gitas in the later Puranas in mainly on Religio-Philosophy. Ana analytical and critical study of all these Gitas reveal the difference in the Philosophical thought in the Mahabharata and the later Puranas. Puranic Gitas reveal the impact of the religious movement which was growing during those days. The aim of the Gitas on the whole is to portray one God head as the Supreme and to reveal that all the paths-Karma, Jnana, Bhakti and yoga are equally important and these different paths are intended to suit the motions and character of different categories of people.

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.
