The Source Book of Hindu Mythology

by Krishna Sarma
 
This book actually describes the figures of the Hindu Mythology, why they came and what they have done. This work is primarily intended for the second generation of Indian-Americans who may not have the ready accessibility of Indian mythology as their parents had, through stories, narratives and even actual reading of the Purānas in their youth in the home

Overview

This book actually describes the figures of the Hindu Mythology, why they came and what they have done. This work is primarily intended for the second generation of Indian-Americans who may not have the ready accessibility of Indian mythology as their parents had, through stories, narratives and even actual reading of the Purānas in their youth in the home country. However, a compendium such this is not available for quick reference, and that need is considered satisfied in this book.

I hope the readers would find this work satisfying their curiosity of Hindu Mythology and its figures and tales.
