This book examines an important figure of Hindu mythology and literature who until now has been almost entirely ignored by scholars of Indian religion: Pradyumna, the son of the Hindu god Krsna. Pradyumna: Lover, Magician and Scion of the Avatara assembles the most important narratives of this character, offering a long-view analysis of his evolving mythology over the period 300-1300 CE.

The Mists of Niflheim: The Ragnarok Era, Book 2...

Oh, the men here worshipped him as a god. The god who had fought a jotunn, fought trolls, fought varulfurm, and won, time after time. Except when he didn´t. For nearly 5,000 years, the mists of Niflheim have enveloped Midgard. And in those mists, the chosen of Hel - the Niflungar - flourish while the rest of mankind hides behind the fragile protection of flames. But Odin has slain the Niflungar prince and rejected their princess, Gudrun, and now the sorceress queen of the Niflungar hunts him without mercy. The queen has sent armies of trolls and draugar to destroy the Aesir. Despite Odin´s rejection, Gudrun cannot deny that her heart longs for the Aesir king, but neither can she refuse her mother´s command to hunt him down. And if Gudrun cannot win Odin back, her mother will turn all the unholy power of Hel against the Aesir. This is a norse mythology and historical fantasy collide in book two of the Ragnarok Era. Author´s note: The Mists of Niflheim is mythic fantasy set in an alternate version of Earth - a version in which the world is covered by the titular mists of the frozen realm of the dishonored dead. This harsh life naturally leads to a somewhat dark tale of Viking-like warriors and supernatural dangers. For those curious, it takes place in the same world as my Skyfall Era books, albeit at a later time period. I adore mythology from any culture: Hindu, Norse, Greek, all of them. Mythology helped shape the fantasy genre. And while lots of fantasies pull in aspects of mythology, I wanted to create something to reconcile all world mythologies into an epic fantasy whole. And why should you give it a try? I´m writing what I´d like to hear: action, epic plots, larger-than-life characters, a bit of romance, swords, sorcery, dark deities, and twists. Sounds up your alley? Then you´ll probably love this mythic world as much as I would. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Pauley.

Durga is a very special goddess. When I first encountered her, I was a little hesitant, but I knew deep down I needed to work with her. From 2014-2015, she has guided me. Ever so often, I am guided to work with one specific deity for a prolong period of time. It was Durga´s turn then. She is by far one of the most beloved of the Hindu Goddesses. She is fiercely loyal and will pull out all the stops when she is protecting her own. She is, in many ways, a gentler version of Kali, but not quite as gentle as Parvati or Lakshmi. Durga´s name means ´´impassable and invincible.´´ The name is derived from the Sanskrit word for fortress, Durg. She has several forms. In this book , we will deal with her nine forms, also known as Navadurga or literally ´Nine Forms of Goddess Durga.´ Each one has a purpose and we will perform nine rituals, one for each form. 1.

Pradyumna (eBook, PDF)
41,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides the first full-scale English-language study of Pradyumna, the son of the Hindu god Krsna. Often represented as a young man in mid-adolescence, Pradyumna is both a handsome double of his demon-slaying father and the rebirth of Kamadeva, the God of Love. Sanskrit epic, puranic, and kavya narratives of the 300-1300 CE period celebrate Pradyumna´s sexual potency, mastery of illusory subterfuges, and military prowess in supporting the work of his avatara father. These materials reflect the values of an evolving Brahminical and Vaisnava tradition that was deeply invested in the imperatives of family, patrilines, the violent but necessary defense of the social and cosmic order, and the celebration of beauty and desire as a means to the divine. Pradyumna´s evolving narratives, almost completely absent from existing studies of Hindu mythology, provide a point of access to the development of Krsna bhakti and Vaisnava theism more broadly. Conversely, Jain sources cast Pradyumna as an exemplary figure through whom a pointed rejection of these values can be articulated, even while sharing certain of their elementary premises. Pradyumna: Lover, Magician, and Scion of the Avatara assembles these narratives, presents key Sanskrit materials in translation and summary form, and articulates the social, gender, and religious values encoded in them. Most importantly, the study argues that Pradyumna´s signature two-handed maneuver--the audacious appropriation of a feminine partner, enabled by the emasculating destruction of her demonic male protector--communicates a persistent fantasy of male power expressed in the language of a mutually implicating sex and violence.
