Description

About the Book

Vishnu-Lakshmi, as the name suggests, is a book about the premier deities of Hinduism, the husband-wife team of Vishnu and Lakshmi. The book traces the evolution of Vishnu and Lakshmi in the Vedas, the epics and the Puranas. The ten incarnation or avataras of Vishnu are delineated in detail. The iconographic representation of Vishnu and Lakshmi, the legends associated with their lives, the emergence of Sri Lakshmi, and the marriage of Vishnu and Lakshmi are dealt with extensively. The tales of Lakshmi in the incarnations of Vishnu and her many aspects and dwelling places are also detailed. The temples and the worship of Vishnu-Lakshmi, their devotees etc. lend interesting sidelights to the cult of Vishnu-Lakshmi.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
