Let's Know Hindu Gods and Goddesses
Let's Know Hindu Gods and Goddesses
Description

From the Jacket :

Religion has occupied an important place in the history of civilization and philosophy of mankind. Even in the primitive society, some form of religion existed with man believing in miracles, in praying to supernatural powers in the heavens and in making sacrifices to Him. The Vedas, the earliest scriptures of the Hindus, contain hymns in praise of God. During this Vedic period, the forces of Nature like the wind, sun, fire, water were worshipped through hymns and sacrifices and this gradually gave way to formal worship of images of God in temples through rituals and religious practices.

This book explains how and why the Hindus revere the Ultimate Reality - God - and his various incarnations. Though the Hindus believe in one God, called Brahma, they worship Vishnu and Shiva, who are depicted as parts of the Hindus trinity.

Written in simple and lucid language, the book not only describes the various gods and goddesses, but also the colourful legends associated with their origin and importance for the Hindus who believe in rebirth and salvation through worship. An added attraction is the inclusion of aartis (hymns) which Hindus sing while praying to their God of choice and faith.

Testimonials

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

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
