Myths and Legends in the Brahmana Literature

 
Dr. Annada Sankar Pahari (Author)
Synopsis

The book by Dr. A.S. Pahari deals with the mythical stories and legendary tales of the Brahmana literature with their origin rooted deeply in the samhitas, specially the Rgveda Samhita and in some cases even in remoter period than the samhitas and their gradual development in the post-brahmana literature. Thus the work seems to incorporate within itself some inaccessible and insoluble problems of how these assumed definite shapes of anecdotes from their embryonic level. The author with his lucid style shows this and reminds once again that the very fibre of Indian culture is knit by these eternal threads of myths and legends through the ages. "By locating the great impact of these myths and legends, "says Prof. Ramaranjan Mukherjee" on Indian society Pahari, thus has brought these closer to life or rather has made them part and parcel of Indian thought-current".
