Garga Samhita (In 2 Volumes)

Shanti Lal Nagar (Author)
Synopsis India is the land of religion, and several deities had been dominating over the Indian religious horizon fro the time immemorial. While some of them disappeared as rapidly as they mushroomed over the Indian religious scene, some of them went into oblivion with the passage of time but some of them established their so strong a foot-hold that their popularity went on increasing with the passage of time. Krsna happens to be one of them. He is considered to be the eighth incarnation of Visnu anad played a dominant role during the Mahabharata war. His life has been highlighted in the epic as well as the Bhagavata, Visnu, Brahma-vaivarta, Harivamsa and several other Puranas. But Garga-Samhita which is indeed of the later origin, and is believed to have been composed by the sage Garga, the family priest of the Yadavas, also deals with not only the life of Krsna but also of Balarama and other events relating to the Yadava dynasty. This text establishes the irrefutable lilnk of Krsna, with the cowherd Nanda, the milkmaids, Karnsa and the Pandavas/Kauravas, nagativating the theory of two Krsnas, one of Mathura and the other of the Mahabharata war. The account provides an English version of the Garga Samhita.
