Description

From the back of the Book

 

"For protecting the good, destroying the wicked,
and for restoring dharma, I am born age after age."

This promise of Lord Vishnu, delivered in the Bhagavad Gita, forms the basis of Dasavatara: The Ten Incarnations of Vishnu - the stories of the descents of Lord. In days gone by, children would cluster around their grandparents and listen with rapt attention to the tales of angry rishis, evil kings, fearsome asuras and the amazing exploits of the Lord. Today, the growth of nuclear families and the changing pace of life have led to these tales and traditions being forgotten or only partially recollected. This book is an attempt at collating the legends of the various avatars or births of Lord Vishnu and presenting them in an easily readable form for Indians in India and abroad, as well as others with an interest in Indian religions, culture and philosophy.

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
