About the Book

Krishna - The Protector of Dharma

Krishna is the eighth incarnation of Vishnu. Loved for his playful, human traits he is venerated as the Supreme Being who upholds Dharma. This collection includes five stories of the much-loved deity.

Krishna, as retold from the Bhagawat Puran, tells the story of his childhood. When a divine prophecy announces the eighth child of Devaki, the princess of Mathura, as the destroyer of her evil brother, Kamsa, the child's father has to do all he can to save the baby.

Krishna and Rukmini tells the story of the daredevil elopement of Rukmini, the princess of Vidarbha, with Krishna in the face of her brother's disapproval and despite the fury of her many suitors.

In Krishna and Jarasandha the Pandavas must subdue Jarasandha, the mighty king of Magadha, if they have to establish supremacy in the region. Only Krishna knows the secret which can destroy him.

Krishna and Narakasura tells the story of Narakasura who steals the earrings of Aditi, the mother of the gods. There is outrage among the devas and Krishna is asked to help. With Satyabhama, his wife, seated beside him on his mount, Garuda, Krishna goes to battle the powerful asura.

In the last story, The Syamantaka Gem, Krishna is determined to save his reputation as he is suspected of having stolen the magical Syamantaka gem.

Taken from Amar Chitra Katha's mythology collection, these stories depict the many faces of Krishna - the child, the lover, the strategist, and the upholder of truth and justice.

The Gita

Gita, short for Bhagavad Gita, 'the Divine Song', is a philosophical dialogue In the Mahabharata.

The setting is the start of the Great War between the Kauravas and the Pandavas. Arjuna, the Pandava hero, finds himself ranged against his elders, close kin, friends and teachers. The thought of piercing them with his arrows disturbs him deeply. Distraught, he breaks down, throws away his bow and declares that he will not fight.

There, in the middle of the battlefield of Kurukshetra, Krishna counsels his friend about life as well as his duty as a warrior so that he can fight the war with full moral conviction.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
