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.

My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
