RAMA - The Human Expression of the Divine
Chandrika

Of Lord Rama, Nobel Laureate, Rabindranath Tagore had said, “In The Ramayana, a God has not cut himself down to the size of a man; a man has become God by the virtue of his many qualities.” It is a fascinating dichotomy which, as the story reveals, eventually merges into a harmony. How Rama straddles both worlds, how Rama the God morphs into Rama the man and how Rama as man grows to become divine – that is the essence of this book. It talks of the varied places he inhabits, the numerous relationships he nourishes, the changeless values he cherishes, the eternal vision that shapes his kingdom of Ramrajya. It charts the growth of this great avatara from a confused Ramachandra, Dasharata’s favourite son to Maryada Purushottama Sri Rama.

Krishna - A Joyous Celebration of the Divine
Chandrika

He is the Blue God, infinite as space, deep as the oceans. Scriptures call him the Poorna Avatara, the complete manifestation of Godhead. But he is also the adorable imp of Vrindavan, the playmate of the gopas (cowherds), Radha's beloved, Draupadi's sakha (friend), the saviour of the Pandavas, the protector of righteousness. He is God. He is man. He is Krishna. The book weaves and melds stories and myths, legends and folklore, with devotion and passion, from sources like the Bhagavata Purana, the Harivamsa and the Mahabharata to piece together, in one whole, the awe-inspiring picture of Vishnu’s avatara (manifestation) as the alluring One, Krishna.

Hinduism - An Introduction
Shakunthala Jagannathan

One of the oldest living religions in the world, with approximately a billion adherents, Hinduism is both a school of thought and a way of life. Drawing from a colossal pool of texts written across the ages - from the Upanishads and the Vedas to the Gita and the Puranas - the religion melds together a range of voices. Yet, given the complexity of its philosophical thrust, the contradictions in its discourse, and the sheer immensity of its bank of wisdom, Hinduism remains a mystery, even to its followers. Hinduism - An Introduction then attempts to simplify an undeniably complex belief-system, and shed light on its eternal laws.
