Legends of Devi

Sukumari Bhattacharji (Author)
Synopsis This book is a captivating narration of various legends and folktales about the revered Devis or goddesses of the Hindu Pantheon. The goddesses not only epitomize the forces of good triumphing over evil, but also the source of wordly well-being. Their forms are many, ranging from the fierce to the benign. Intrinsically human in their frailties and shortcomings, most of the goddesses have attained divine status owing not so much to their supernatural powers as to their devotion, determination and sacrifice. This colorful collection of mythological tales remain closely woven in the fabric of Indian life and culture and often reflect the ceremonies, beliefs and value systems of a particular age.The book is vividly illustrated. These illustrations are symbolically rich. Specially commissioned, they in themselves constitute a storehouse of information on mythological iconography.
