Vedic Mythology (2 Volumes)
Vedic Mythology (2 Volumes)
Description
About the Book:

Alfred Hillerbrandt's Vedische Mythologie, together with his Ritual-Literature: Vedische Opfer und Zauber, forms a pioneering contribution to Vedic studies. Vedische Mythologie originally appeared in three volumes in 1891, 1899 and 1902. In 1910 Hillebrandt had also brought out a shorter version entitled Vedische Mythologie, Kleine Ausgabe. Subsequently he thorough revised the original edition, rewriting some parts quite afresh, and arranged the material in two volumes, the first of which was published in 1927 and the second posthumously in 1929. The present English translation is of this second revised edition. Following the method of philological exegesis and shunning unsubstantiated theories, Hillebrandt analyses and interprets here the concepts of Vedic gods.

Volume I contains a long introduction where he lays down his methodology and principles of interpretation. Then follow four chapters dealing respectively with Usas, Asvins, Agni and Soma. The chapter on Soma occupies more than half of the volume, expounding his major thesis that Soma denoted the moon throughout the Rgveda. There is an extensive appendix on the preparation and offering of the Soma drink according to the Srauta Sutras and another appendix on the tribe of the Panis.

Volume II discusses the various classes of gods. It has six chapters dealing respectively with the Adityas; Savitr and the Rbhus; Indra and the Maruts, Visnu, Pusan and lesser deities; Manes, Demons and Asuras; and Rudra. The second volume also contains a concordance of all the translated passages, a general bibliography, a bibliography of Hillebrandt's writing on the Veda and a detailed index.

About the Author:

ALFRED HILLEBRANDT was born on 15th March 1853, in Grossnaedlitz near Breslau. He began his Sanskrit studies under A.F. Stenzler at the University of Breslau.

In 1875 he earned the degree of Dr. Phil. From the University of Munich for his thesis on the Goddess Aditi, and two years later the University of Breslau awarded him the degree of Dr. Habil. For his dissertation on Varuna and Mitra. Hillebrandt joined the University of Breslau in 1883 as Associate Professor of Sanskrit and in 1887 he succeeded his teacher Stenzler as full Professor. He was also Vice-Chancellor of his University twice. His more than two hundred articles, reviews and books deal with a vast range of subjects like Veda, Avesta, Srauta Sutras, Sanskrit Drama, Poetry, Grammar, Arthasastra, Indian History, University Administration and Curriculum. The last major work he completed just before his death in 1927 was the revision of the Vedische Mythologie.

SREERAMULA RAJESWARA SARMA studied at Visva Bharati, Santiniketan, and Philipps University, Marburg.

Amazing book and service. The shipment to Germany was even faster than I expected (4 days counting the weekend)the packaging was flawless and superb and I received the book in perfect condition. My pleasure to buy in your shop and thank you very much!

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.

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.
