The ABC of Hindu Culture: A Dictionary from Abhimanyu to Yuyutsu

John Dowson (Author) Mahendra Kulasrestha (Editor)

The Hindu being one of the most ancient cultures in the world, its religion and mythology are not only immense but highly varied, colourful and interesting. The religion was not limited to one or two books, but many and many more, which included the bulky Puranas, an unlimited storehouse of all kinds of fables, legend and essentially history-based stories.

These materials are important because they have given shape to their society’s culture. Not only the members of the society need to know and understand them, others, too would be interested in learning about these for comparative studies and value judgments. The present work in dictionary form provides an easy instrument for reference on all major aspects and subjects of Hindu culture. The learned author has utilized the original Sanskrit texts of the well known Muir and the works of Wilson whose translations of the Rigveda and Vishnu Purana are famous, as also the writings of Williams, Max Muller, Roth, Bohthlingk, Lassen, Weber, Whitney and Wltheim da Fonseca, etc.

No wonder, it is one of the most authentic and reliable works on the subject, despite its being one of the earliest.
