Indra in Indian Mythology

Muralidhar Mohanty (Author)

Through the present work entitled “Indra in Indian Mythology” the author gives an interesting and fascinating account of “Indra”- the king of Gods. Indra is well known to each and every body as Indra Devata, the Rain God. It is the impression of the general Public that heavy rain or adequate or death of rain is due to the pleasure and displeasure of Indra Devata. So as to satisfy him the people offer worship and perform yajna for raining. Thereby he is famous and familiar among the peoples. But other exploits and traits are unknown to common mass except some scholars. In his benevolent character he gives protection and in the melevolent nature he punishes those, who are irreligious dishonest and harmful to the society by killing or vanquishing them. Thus the benefolent and melevolent deeds done by him discussed in the greater detail in the twelfth chapters which are self explanatory.

About the author

Muralidhar Mohanty

Shri Muralidhar Mohanty was born in a small village of Bhandaripokhari, Orissa in the year 1931. An avid reader of ancient literature and vedic culture during his school days he joined Department of Culture of Government of Orissa at an early age. The author had spend most of his life in the temple city of Bhubaneswar which is an intriguing amalgam of the old and the new, a place of fusion of traditional Indian art in its many temples and monuments. However the vedic culture that dominated the landscape of Orissa drew the author and prompted him to attempt this work on Visnu Cult. The subject is very close to his heart. A retired Government Servant, the author had dedicated his life in social service and environment issues since his retirement in 1989. His yet to be published works includes: 1. The Fire, 2. The Sun-worship, 3. The God of Rain & Thunder & 4. Origin and Development of Radhakrishna cult.
