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.
