KARTTIKEYA (In Indian Art and Literature)
KARTTIKEYA (In Indian Art and Literature)
Description
About the Book:

The present work, Karttikeya in Indian Art and Literature, is based mainly on the Ph.D. thesis approved by the University of Patna in 1977. In this work, an attempt has been made to make a detailed study of the cult of Karttikeya in ancient India for filling up the gap in knowledge of the development of the cult of the god which has not been treated in detail by the previous authors on the subject. For the study, both literary and archaeological sources have been thoroughly utilized, for both together can furnish a judicious picture about the prevalence of the cult of the god in ancient times in out country.

The work has been divided into seven chapters dealing with the character and personality of Karttikeya in the religious and non-religious literature of both the northern and the southern parts of the country and in inscriptions together with his representations on coins, seals and sealings and in art.

In this work, as far as practicable, no pains have been spared to make the study of the cult of Karttikeya in ancient India sufficiently comprehensive. Secondly, the various representations of the god and his vehicles in stone sculptures, terracottas and bronzes and on coins and seals have been discussed in such a manner that they may suggest the various aspects connected with the development and the spread of the cult of the god in different parts of the country in ancient times. Thirdly, whenever it could be possible, an attempt has been made to correlate the textual descriptions with the various kinds of representations of the deity in Indian art. And lastly, it has also been endeavoured to present a complete picture of the prevalence of the cult of the god both in the northern and the southern parts of the country.

Testimonials
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 !
