SAIVISM THROUGH THE AGES
SAIVISM THROUGH THE AGES
Description
About the Book:

This book amply illustrates in the light of the Vedic texts that Siva (or Rudra) is one of the names of the Supreme Spirit, who has two different form - one the minutest residing in the heart of every living beings, and the other the largest holding the entire universe including the heavenly bodies in the milky way. Siva is not a non-Aryan god; and the term Linga instead of indicating his phallus, stands for the endless space (aksasam lingamityahuh). The Lord was never conceived only as a terrible god; but at all times all His three different activities were correctly conceived by the Indian seers. His serpent stands either for the Kula Kundalini (electrical energy in a human body) or for his terrible wrath against the sinners. Likewise, the significance of different limbs, weapons, mount, garment, matted locks etc. of the Lord are also given with authoritative texts. Moreover various types of Sivalingas and the innumerable Lingas found at different places, with their recorded history are also given.

About the Author:

Rabindra Kumar Siddhantasastree had all along an extraordinary brilliant academic career. Besides being a Premchand Roychand Scholar (Calcutta, 1955) he is a holder of five Tirtha and seven Shastree titles. He is an author of a number of books and is at present lecturer in the Department of Ancient Indian History and Culture, University of Calcutta.

Testimonials

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.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
