Description
Why This Book?

This book has been written for those who would like to know about gods and goddesses in Hinduism, Buddhism and Tantrism, in a nutshell. Tibetan deities as well as those associated with sutras (esoteric discourses) are also dealt with in detail. It would be of special interest to visitors who come to Nepal for a short visit. Since most of the sculptures, paintings are based on religious mythologies; therefore, basic facts about religions are also necessary.

Authors have been interacting for 56 years with visitors of Nepal and giving them lectures mainly about religions and history. These lectures made them realize that there is a great scope of such book. The visitors are immensely interested not only in gods and goddesses but also want to learn about the way of life of Hindus and Buddhists in Nepal.

Therefore, glossary in full detail is given.

Relationship of various gods and goddesses has also been given to avoid any confusion and make it easy at a glance for readers.

The authors have ventured to keep the topics as simple and as short as possible. Most accurate description of various deities accompanied with illustrations, line-drawings, black and white pictures based on authors' 56 years of survey and research is given.

Legends related to various gods and goddesses are also given. Temples and festivals associated with various deities are also described. Various festivals associated with deities are also mentioned.

It will not be erroneous to mention that authors have ventured to write this book in a nutshell as they were shocked and strongly disgusted to see some other books on the subject full of grammatical mistakes, unsequential and with gross errors in the subject matter.

Present authors have assiduous study, survey and ventured to exact, precise, sequential and perfect this book, as much as possible.

Comments and suggestions are most welcome from readers..
