Book Description
Back of the Book

The stories that await you are an exhilarating mix of devotion, history and myths!

Dance of Shiva and Other Divine Tales explores the mysteries that lie behind some of our most ancient and revered temples-from Kanyakumari to Kanchipuram. Revealing the legends behind the origins of these temples and the wonders associated with them, these stories will delight anyone fascinated by Indian folklore.

These timeless and enchanting stories narrate the triumph of good over evil; they portray god's compassion towards man; they reveal the miracles worked by devotion. Immensely engaging and magical, the action in these narratives ranges over heaven and earth: Indra is punished for lusting after a sage's wife; Narada uses his tricks to stop Shiva's marriage to Parvati; Kannagi's curse reduces Madurai to ashes; Vishnu saves Gajendran, the elephant, from the crocodile's clutches ... and much more. A collection that is in equal parts enlightening and enthralling.

About the Author

Preetha Rajah Kannan is the author of Shiva in the City of Nectar, an enthralling collection of stories based on the revered Tamil text, Thiruvilayaadal Puranam. This was followed by Son of Shiva, narrating the exploits of the warrior-god Kartikeya, commander-in-chief of the heavens and epitome of wisdom and valour. Her third book, Hounds of Shiva, is a treasure house of tales detailing the impassioned, heroic acts of sacrifice, devotion and service in the life and times of the Shaivite saints, the Nayanmars. Her next book is The Warrior God: Ayyappa of Sabarimalai. She is also the editor of Navagraha Purana, a translation of the eponymous Telugu work on the mythology of the nine planets, by V. S. Rao. Kannan has contributed extensively to newspapers and magazines, such as The New Indian Express and The Express School Magazine. A homemaker and the mother of two sons, she lives with her family in Madurai, Tamil Nadu.
