Description

About the Book:

        Brhad-Devata is an index of the 'many gods', a much more extensive work than any of the other Anukramanis, as it contains about 1200 slokas interspread with occasional tristubhs. It is divided into eight adhyayas corresponding to the astakas of the Rg-Veda. Following the order of the Rg-veda, its main object is to state the deity for each verse. But as it contains a large number of illustrative myths and legends, it is of great value as an early collection of stories. A peculiar of this work is that it refers to a number of supplementary hymns (khilas) which do not form part of the canonical text of the Rg-veda.

    Part I is critically edited in the original Sanskrit with an introduction and seven appendices and Part II contains English translation and notes.

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
