Vikramaditya
Vikramaditya
Description
Chandragupta Vikramaditya (A.D. 380-413), the son of Samudragupta, is one of the most familiar and celebrated names in Indian history. He is remembered for his valour, courage, sense of justice and above all his burning patriotism, due to which he succeeded in expelling the Sakas from Western India.

The incidents narrated in this book are based on "Devi Chandragupta" by Visakhadatta. This work is now lost but a few passages from it, quoted in other books, give us a glimpse of the events narrated in it. There are also references to episodes in the life of Chandragupta in literary works and inscriptions of a later period. Chandragupta Vikramaditya's reign brought peace and prosperity to a wide area extending from the Bay of Bengal to the Arabian Sea, and from the Himalayas to the Vindhyas. It is perhaps this that won for Chandragupta Vikramaditya a permanent place in the hearts of the people of India.

Fa-hien, the Chinese pilgrim who travelled over India for more than ten years (A.D. 400-411) during the reign of Chandragupta Vikramaditya, has left an interesting record of the country and the life of the people inhabiting it.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
Mike, USA
I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
