Indian Theories of Creation: A Synthesis
Indian Theories of Creation: A Synthesis
Description
From the Jacket:

In the work Indian Theories of Creation, the author has tried to present an account of all the theories of creation found in the different systems of Indian philosophy. Further, he has endeavored to show that behind all these theories there is a synthetic theory of creation. All the theories of creation prevalent in India are based on this synthetic theory, the difference among them lying only in the omission or inclusion of some or the other stage or stages thereof.

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.
Gina, USA
