A Treasury Of Ancient Indian Tales
A Treasury Of Ancient Indian Tales
Description
About The Book

This is collection of some of the most exciting and fun stories from Indian Mythology. Lucidly narrated and brilliantly illustrated, this exclusive assortment of tales gives us a peek into fascinating legends, and recounts the exploits of gods, demons and mortals in tales of valour, adventure and intrigue.

The first section consists assorted tales that retail the stories of how thunder got its sound, and what happened when the child Hanuman thought the rising sun was a ball to how Ganesh got the head of an elephant.

The second section tells tales of the never ending wars between the Devas and the Asuras the gods and the demons and how they constantly tried to outwit each other and seized control of the universe.

The third section is about the ten Avataras of Visnhu: from the great food to the yet to be born Kalki who will destroy all evil and create a new fair and happy world.

The fourth section features timeless tales from the Mahabharata stories that are not part of the main storyline about the Pandavas and the kauravas but which are an integral part of the great Indian tapestry of imagination and myth how Savitri brought Satyavan back from the dead the tale of Shakuntala’lot ring and many others.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
