Publisher's summary

Explore captivating Hindu myths of Hindu gods and goddesses

The stories in Hindu myth stem from traditions within Hinduism, drawing on stories from ancient texts, like the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Keep in mind that because different versions of Hinduism inspire different people, many different versions of the stories float through the jungle and over the stones of temples and traditions. The stories in this volume are my version, though I’ve stuck as closely to the original myths and legends as imagination allows. At the end of this audiobook, you’ll find a short bibliography for further research.

Within this book, you'll find the following Hindu myths covered:

  • Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu, and the Beginning of the World
  • The Birth of Lord Shiva
  • Saraswati & Brahma’s Fifth Head
  • Shiva Tests Parvati
  • Shiva Snares a Whale
  • Ganesha Loses His Head
  • Ganesha Spills a River
  • Kubera’s Pride
  • Ganesha Injures a Goddess
  • Ganesha Wins a Race
  • Shiva Skips Success
  • Ravana’s Ten Heads
  • The Birth of Rama
  • Urmila’s Slumber
  • Deer of Deception
  • Hanuman’s Torch
  • Suvannamachha Steals a Bridge
  • Hanuman Moves a Mountain
  • The Final Battle
  • Sita’s Purity
  • Krishna Steals Butter
  • Krishna Trades for Jewels
  • Krishna Swallows the Flames
  • Agni Spreads a Curse
  • Vayu Humbles the Silk Cotton Tree

interesting

For me the book was great; summaries plus myths that speak for themselves. And the myths are really interesting.
