The Book of Hindu Imagery: Gods, Manifestations and Their Meaning

Front Cover
Eva Rudy Jansen
Binkey Kok Publications, 1993 - Religion - 150 pages
Hinduism is more than a religion; it is a way of life. Its rich and multicoloured history has made the structure of its mythical and philosophical principles into a highly differentiated maze, of which total knowledge is a practical impossibility. This volume cannot offer a complete survey of the meaning of Hinduism. It is an extensive compilation of important deities and their divine manifestations, so that modern students can understand the significance of the Hindu pantheon.
