Experience Angkor Wat , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 53min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Hinduism is one of the world’s great religions, dominating the Indian subcontinent for most of the last millennium, and its largest temple is an unbelievably magnificent structure located in Angkor, Cambodia.  Known in English as Angkor Wat (“City Temple”), the gigantic complex was built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century to serve as the king’s state temple and capital city. Since it has remained so finely preserved, it has maintained religious significance for nearly 900 years, first dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, and then Buddhist. Understandably, it has become one of Cambodia’s most potent symbols and tourist attractions, and it even appears on the Cambodian national flag.  Angkor Wat continues to fascinate the world, both due to its sheer grandeur and size, as well as its ornamental decorations both inside and out. With political strife in Cambodia having cooled, Angkor Wat is now a major tourist attraction, bringing upwards of more than half a million foreigners per year, which accounts for more than half of the nation’s tourists.  Although its popularity continues to increase, Cambodia will likely never be high on most Westerners’ destination lists, but Experience Angkor Wat can bring this incredible temple to you right at home. This illustrated guide introduces the history of Angkor and the Khmer, as well as the Sanskrit epics behind the architecture at Angkor Wat. It contains over 130 images, including reliefs of scenes from the Ramayana, the temples of Angkor Thom, and more!  Whether you want to experience Angkor Wat vicariously, or are planning a trip there, let this be your guide to Angkor Wat today.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.   1.

The Rāmāyana of Valmīki, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 2...

The ancient Indian Sanskrit epic the Rāmāyana was composed some time between the first and fifth centuries BCE. As is the case with most ancient literature firmly rooted in the oral tradition, precise dating is problematic. Traditionally attributed to the sage Valmīki, and composed in rhyming couplets, it is one of the two great Indian epics (the other being the Mahābhārata); consequently it is known and revered not just throughout the Indian subcontinent but also in South-East Asian countries as well, including Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia - indeed wherever Hindu culture became established. It relates the tale of a Prince of Ayodhya, Rāma, and recounts the various episodes of his exile and subsequent return. The narrative follows Rāma's quest and rescue mission, bringing home his beloved Sita from the clutches of the demon king of Lanka, Ravana, aided by an army of monkeys. While the basic story involves palace politics and battles with demon tribes, it is also infused with ethics, philosophy, logic and notes on duty. In the Mahābhārata, characters are presented with all their human follies and failings; the Rāmāyana by contrast leans towards an ideal state of things. For instance, Rāma is the ideal son and king, Sita the ideal wife, Hanuman the ideal devotee, Lakshman and Bhārat the ideal brothers, and even Ravana, the demon villain, is not entirely despicable. This translation, by Ralph T. H. Griffith, first published in 1870, was the first complete English version and has retained its initial reputation as an outstanding achievement - as much for its literary as its scholastic qualities. There are six Books or Khandas (a seventh which is sometimes included is generally regarded as a much later addition) containing some 24,000 verses which, as with the original, are presented in rhyming couplets. This makes the Rāmāyana of a similar length to the Iliad and Odyssey combined, and there 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sagar Arya.
