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.

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.
