About the Author

Hinduism is more than a religion; it is a way of life. Its rich and multicoloured history has made the structure of its mythical and philosophical principles into a highly differentiated maze, of which total knowledge is a practical impossibility. This volume cannot offer a complete survey of the meaning of Hinduism. It is an extensive compilation of important deities and their divine manifestations, so that modern students can understand the significance of the Hindu pantheon.

Format: Paperback
This is a reference book to postures, hand signs, clothing, attributes, symbols, gods, etc. used in Hindu art. Since it is only a reference book, it does not expand into theory. It has good black and white drawings that make it easier to scrutinize an often complicated art style.

Great book that explained all of the hand positions and symbolism that the statues show. Lots of pictures. It was a great book for a new Hindu. I would buy this again.
