Book Overview

HINDUISM / MYTHOLOGY Alain Danielou was a man whose vast and curious learning in the fields of literature, music and the Orient was unequalled in our time. His beautifully written works remain to console us in our increasingly barbaric continent. Our debt to Alain Danielou's scholarship and deep humanity is immeasurable. --James Kirkup, The Independent The physical aspects of this book and its arrangements are beyond reproach. The style is lucid; the lack of polemic is particularly attractive. The total result is a volume that is a pleasure to behold and an invigorating experience to read. --American Anthropologist Danielou is one of the greatest Western authorities on Hinduism. . . . His talents seem unending. --Mohini Kent, Times of India Danielou's books are remarkable for their clarity, scholarship, and uninhibited celebration of erotic and mystical ecstasy. --Interview Magazine This study of Hindu mythology explores the significance of the most prominent Hindu deities as they are envisioned by the Hindus themselves. Referred to by its adherents as the eternal religion, Hinduism recognizes for each age and each country a new form of revelation--and for each person, according to his or her stage of development, a different path of realization. This message of tolerance and adaptability, the very heart of Hindu polytheism, resounds clearly throughout Alain Danielou's work. Read More chevron_right
