Sometimes a visual medium is the best way to get spiritual teaching stories across. In this way the images remain in the mind of the student until he, or she, is ready to connect them to their own life and thereby realize the deeper meaning at a later time. These well-told, well-drawn, full color stories do this with four of the traditional tales of Vishnu from the Vaishnava Puranas: Gajendra, Ambarisha, Vrikasura, and Rantideva. All four stories teach clear, positive, non-ambiguous lessons of what it means to be pleasing, or displeasing, to the greatest of the aspects of God in the Hindu pantheon. Along the way one is also introduced to Brahma, Shiva, Indra, Yama, and other of the devas.
These "comics" are a high quality production and remind me of the old Classics Illustrated series.
I would buy a ton of these books if they were sold for 0.50 each. For $2 not worth it.
