Product description


An amazing book by Devdutt. After watching videos of devdutt on the net,was curious on his literature.This was my first book and he has impressed me a lot.Am a fan of devdutt. The simplicity,language,To The Point description,the depth,Meanings inferred and the authenticity of the content is just marvellous.This book takes you pretty deep into spirituality and lot more things that you didnt know but were following, become clear highlighting it's purpose. Having read 6 books of his(at the moment), i must say he's the one who has made mythology/Spirituality simple to understand. Hats off to him and his work !! --Abhay Vijaykumar Sep 5, 2012

Read Dr. Pattanaik's few books earlier and this one too is one of his best writings. The new channel Life Ok is airing a serial on Lord Shiva " MAHADEV" and the producers give due credits to Dr Pattanaik's writings for being the inspiration of the serial. I am neither a Shiva sadhika nor an expert in mythology but reading this great book was a soothing experience. Shiva's various aspects as Kaal Bhairav, Sundareshwar, Kashi Vishwanath, Gore Bhairav have been wonderfully ellaborated in different chapters leaving the readers spell bound and surrendered before Mahadev. Shiva's Nivratti marg as compared to Narayan's Pravritti Marg has been justified aptly leaving it to the readers to decide which is the greatest of both. --Geetha Sunil Pillai Dec 19, 2011

A really must read for everybody who wants to understand Hindu mythology or would like to classify it as erratic and out of world stories of Gods who are absent at the time of need. While i have always understood spirituality and dismissed mythology as interesting stories for kids. I find these should be the best piece of literature. Such abstract concepts are so beautifully laden that they demonstrate abstract concepts, through mundane materialistic things. Book is good but concepts concepts could be better categorized to give clearer picture --Priyanka Srivastav Apr 16, 2012
