Indra and Varuna in Indian Mythology
Indra and Varuna in Indian Mythology
Description
From the Jacket

Indra and Varuna are the two most important archetypal symbols of Indian mythology. This book reviews the development of the myths related to there figures in the entire Vedic literature, the Mahabharata and the principal Puranas. It studies the meterological, physiological, psychological, political, social, religious and philosophical interpretations of these two mythological and literary images. This book concludes that mythically the two most important and exalted Vedic Gods-Indra and Varuna of Vedas fall of from their position at the emergence of the Hindu trinity in the Mahabharata and the Puranas but philosophically they remain as important as before representing the two complementary aspects of the cosmic reality at various levels of existence. One represents the truth of being, the other the truth of becoming; one represents the spirit, the other the matter; one symbolizes the vast creative principle and the other the enveloping formless void; one denotes metaphorically the day, and the other the night.

Ina, Germany
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.
