Lord Ganesha's Feast of Laughter
Lord Ganesha's Feast of Laughter
Description
From the Back of the Book:

Twenty-three Lively stories about the lovable elephant-headed god

Ganesha has an elephant's head, a pot belly and a rollicking sense of fun. Full of mischief, he fools around with gods and humans alike. He is also wise and shrewd, gentle and compassionate.

These tales of Lord Ganesha include old mythological favourites, like the stories about his birth and how he got his elephant head. Alongside are little-known tales dug up from ancient texts - how Ganesha created the tabla, how he stopped Ravana from becoming all-powerful, how he won a race around the world without moving an inch, and how he swallowed Vishnu, Brahma and Lakshmi in one big gulp! Each illustrated tale is told with sparkling wit - to match that of the boisterous god.

Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
