Overview: Indian Mythology

Indian Mythology by Devdutt Pattnaik discusses and depicts the implication behind the metaphors of the classic myths of rituals and symbolic arts. This book investigates about 50 artistic illustrations of important mythological figures from 17th century temple carving to 20th century calendar art. The book also emphasises on the importance of Vishnu and Shiva, Gauri and Kali, Krishna and Rama in the fabric of Hindu culture. The author's cultural approach breaks the western paradigm in relation to the Hindu gods by quoting the philosophy of their innate nature to contrasting poles of positive and negative, light and dark, preserver and destroyer. Alongside he also compares Indian mythology with the stories from the bible, ancient Egypt, Greece, Scandinavia and Mesopotamia. This book provides an insight into various cultures and tradition by discussing the associated stories behind them. For people interested in Indian culture and mythology this book contains close to ninety nine classic myths.

Dr. Devdutt Pattnaik professionally a medical doctor switched jobs to be a cultural investigator of myths.
