Shiva
Shiva
Description
From the Jacket: Shiva the source of sacred Ganges, the ascetic whose Tandava dance shook not only the mortal world but even the gods and sages, is in the trinity of Brahama, Vishnu, Mahesh, considered to be the most powerful of Indian gods. He is described as the all pervading Supreme Soul, both terrible and benign, creative and destructive, ugly and handsome. The cycle of life and death can only proceed when these two basic opposite forces of good and evil, represented by the devas and the bhutas are finally reconciled. These two opposite principles are eternally in conflict but become reconciled in the body of Shiva. Their co-existence is represented in the rhythm of Shiva's dance. In Shiva, Dr. Shakti Gupta writes not only about the myths and legends around Shiva, but traces the worship of Shiva from Indus Valley Civilization to the modern times. With the panoramic coverage, Shiva is a feast not only for the serious student of Indian mythology but also for the lay reader who will find it an absorbing and enriching reading.

About the Author:

Dr. Gupta is an established writer on Hindu mythology and has published 7 books on the subject. Her latest book is a comprehensive volume on Festivals, Fairs and Fasts of India. Four of her books have already gone into second edition. She obtained a Ph.D. in Botany from the university of Delhi, and a Ph.D. in Oriental Archaeology from the Martin-Luther University, Halle wittenberg, Germany. As an Ethnobotanist she has done considerable work on plant myths and rituals, and a survey of plants sculptured on Hindu, Buddhist and Jain temples of India.

Testimonials

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.

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!
