In a World of Gods and Goddesses: The Mystic Art of Indra Sharma (Paperback) - Showcased to dazzling effect here is the Hindu religious art of India National Award winner Sharma. Often featured in publications on Hindu spirituality (the late A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, was a close friend and patron), Sharma's paintings are colorful, vivid, and lush, with great attention to the details of clothing, jewelry, and the world of nature. In some ways, his paintings resemble traditional Christian hagiographic art, with androgynous figures (divine or human), carefully draped garments, and symbolic items in profusion. They are highly realistic not to say photographic yet they depict the unseen personages of mythology from Ganesh to Shiva. The book, in fact, is intended as a visual introduction to Hindu gods and goddesses, with Bae's thorough text clarifying the religious meaning of all the artistic detail. A practitioner of Yoga, Bae has spent the last three years living in India as a monk. A beautifully produced and relatively inexpensive large-format book, this is warmly recommended for public and academic libraries. James F.

Hindu Gods and Goddesses: 300 Illustrations from "The Hindu Pantheon" This rich treasury of India's religious iconography was assembled from the work of one of the 19th-century's leading scholars. Its 300 captioned illustrations feature dramatic engravings and line drawings, including scenes from the Ramayana and Mahabharata as well as temple images of Krishna, Vishnu, Siva, and other major deities.

Hindu Gods and Goddesses (Paperback) by W. J. Wilkins (Author)  Selected accounts from India's sacred literature form a complete and systematic overview of the many Hindu deities. These explorations cover gods from the Vedic and Puranic literature as well as lesser figures such as demons, sacred birds, and other lore. Includes 85 beautiful black-and-white illustrations culled from traditional sources.

The Book of Devi (Indian Gods and Goddesses) (Hardcover) by Bulbul Sharma Devi, Mother and Protector of the World, is one of the most loved figures of Hindu iconography. Her essence encompasses the ferocity of Durga, the compassion of Lakhsmi, the erudition of Saraswati and the terrible thirst for battle of Kalika. In her various incarnations Devi is warrior, mother, faithful wife and the fount of knowledge, delivering all that her devotees ask of her. Bulbul Sharma tells the fascinating story of Devi in this book, drawing upon the many strands of myth and legend contained in ancient scriptures and also in folklore. She looks at how these stories were created, how they changed down the ages, and the vision of the world they uphold. Rich in drama and symbolism, these stories live today with the same intensity as they did when they were first told.
