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.

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.
