5.0 out of 5 stars Daniélou is the master teatcher of Hindu Mythology., 18 Feb 2001
This review is from: The Myths and Gods of India: The Classic Work of Hindu Polytheism (Princeton/Bollingen Paperbacks) (Paperback)
If you will only bye one book about the Hindu Pantheon, bye this one!! What can I say. It is the most impressive book about the subject. You will get a lot more than you came for. In fact, you will get the key to Hindu Philosophy as well as a detailed description on any Devi, Deva, Demon or Androgyne you can think of. You can use it as an introduction on Hindu Mythology. As an advanced student, you cannot live without it, because Daniélou has the angle to Hindu Mythology, and the deeper knowledge based on the scriptures, that most would have to spend half a lifetime to consider the importance of. Here you get it on a silver platter.

This review is from: The Myths and Gods of India: The Classic Work of Hindu Polytheism (Princeton/Bollingen Paperbacks) (Paperback)
If you have no other book on your shelves this will keep you entertained for years. A constant reference work. Shcolarly and accessible. Danielou has done what many indologists have tried to do and succeeded with grace and inspiration. whether you want to find the original sources for material on the Gods, or simply the relationships between them this is a wonderful classic work on the subjkect. Equal to Kerenyi's work on Greek mythology. Extensive references to orinal material and easily accessible even to the non-scholar. uy it.
