Bappa Rawal The Story of a Famous Rajput King
Bappa Rawal The Story of a Famous Rajput King
Description
By the 7th century the Rajput kings had lost their kingdoms, extending up to Ghazni in Afghanistan, to their enemies. In the 8th century the foreign invaders had not only entered India across the Indus but had also established several small kingdoms in Rajasthan. Even so, the Hindu rulers failed to unite. There was not one Rajput ruler strong enough to drive those aliens out, bring together the small states and instill a sense of peace and security among the people.

Such were the conditions when prince Shailadhish, who was to become famous as Bappa Rawal, the father of a united Rajasthan, was compelled to go into hiding. He was a mere child when he was taken away from his mother to serve a Brahman.

Once, when he went to see her, his mother related to him how the Rajputs had once ruled over the territory up to Ghazni. At that moment Bappa made a vow, "I will win back the territory of my predecessors."

In the following pages you will read how, in the face of troubles and tribulations, he redeemed his promise. This book has been adapted from the various legends about Bappa Rawal.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
