Let's Know Hindu Gods and Goddesses
Let's Know Hindu Gods and Goddesses
Description

From the Jacket :

Religion has occupied an important place in the history of civilization and philosophy of mankind. Even in the primitive society, some form of religion existed with man believing in miracles, in praying to supernatural powers in the heavens and in making sacrifices to Him. The Vedas, the earliest scriptures of the Hindus, contain hymns in praise of God. During this Vedic period, the forces of Nature like the wind, sun, fire, water were worshipped through hymns and sacrifices and this gradually gave way to formal worship of images of God in temples through rituals and religious practices.

This book explains how and why the Hindus revere the Ultimate Reality - God - and his various incarnations. Though the Hindus believe in one God, called Brahma, they worship Vishnu and Shiva, who are depicted as parts of the Hindus trinity.

Written in simple and lucid language, the book not only describes the various gods and goddesses, but also the colourful legends associated with their origin and importance for the Hindus who believe in rebirth and salvation through worship. An added attraction is the inclusion of aartis (hymns) which Hindus sing while praying to their God of choice and faith.

About the Author:

Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
