Description

About the Book:

Quite a good deal of fresh study has been recently attempted by many a scholar on some well-known deities, their religious systems and iconographies as well as their metaphysical symbolism. However, only a few writers have endeavored to discover new or obscure aspects of certain lesser-known gods of goddesses. One such outstanding example is that of Vinayaki, the female form of the god Ganesa-Vinayaka. The present work introduces the problem of studying this curious goddess while discussing her names and identity as known from the texts, her antiquity as well as her iconic descriptions and representations in Indian art throught the ages. The learned author has collected and analyzed in critical details a great amount of material that had remained so far not properly studied with respect to this unique aspect of Ganesa, conceived as transformed into a female, with elephantine bust and affiliated attributes.

About The Author:

Dr. P.K. Agrawala is a well-known scholar of Indology working as a University Professor in the Department of Ancient Indian History, Culture & Archaeology of the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi. His special field of investigation is Ancient Indian Art, Iconography and Religious thought

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!

Carl, UK.
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.
