You might know that Greek gods interfered on both sides of the Trojan War, but did you know that Hindu gods fought alongside both the Pandavas and Kauravas in the Mahabharata? In the same way the ancient Egyptians worshiped Ra above all else, did you know that the monkey-god, Hanuman, gained his wisdom from the sun? Did you know that Krishna and Hercules are often linked to a past that includes Alexander the Great's conquests? And just as Noah had his ark, one of Lord Vishnu's avatars had a similar tale for Hinduism. All of us share the same stories because the things that unite us are far greater than the things that divide us.I wrote this book because I wanted my loved ones to hear about Rama and Krishna and Saraswati as they also learned of Thor and Hercules, of Horus and Ra, of Noah, and Moses. In these 25 tales, you will be immersed in Hinduism in a way that highlights the traits I found most compelling in my research - tales of love, pride, virtue, and fate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joana Garcia. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/184375/bk_acx0_184375_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Death of Vishnu
61,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

At the opening of this masterful debut novel, Vishnu lies dying on the staircase he inhabits while his neighbors the Pathaks and the Asranis argue over who will pay for an ambulance. As the action spirals up through the floors of the apartment building we are pulled into the drama of the residents' lives: Mr. Jalal's obsessive search for higher meaning; Vinod Taneja's longing for the wife he has lost; the comic elopement of Kavita Asrani, who fancies herself the heroine of a Hindi movie. Suffused with Hindu mythology, this story of one apartment building becomes a metaphor for the social and religious divisions of contemporary India, and Vishnu's ascent of the staircase parallels the soul's progress through the various stages of existence. As Vishnu closes in on the riddle of his own mortality, we wonder whether he might not be the god Vishnu, guardian not only of the fate of the building and its occupants, but of the entire universe.

Lakshmi is a popular goddess in Hinduism and Indian mythology. She goes by many names, such as Sri, Padma, Padmasundari and Devi. Since she is Vishnu's consort she is also considered to be an incarnation of Vishnu's different consorts when he incarnated at different times: Radha (Krishna), Sita (Rama), etc. Though this all sounds confusing one thing that's certain is that she's commonly worshipped as the goddess of wealth, prosperity and good fortune. She is particularly venerated in India on the major Hindu holiday Diwali, the festival of lights. This journal features: 200 lined pages (100 sheets) 6 x 9 inches 60 pound (90 gsm) white-colored paper Perfect bound matte softcover (10 pt stock) Ten percent of book sales go towards enabling youth in developing countries to access better educational opportunities.

Lord Vishnu's Love Handles: A Spy Novel (Sort Of)
27,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Travis Anderson has a psychic gift. Or so he thinks. So far he's used his premonitions only to acquire an upper-middle-class lifestyle - pretty wife, big house, and a shiny Range Rover - without having to make any real effort. But recent visions threaten his yuppie contentment and a series of inaccurate and horrifying prophecies humiliate him in front of his fellow country club members. The IRS pulls Travis's number, too, demanding an audit of his sloppy bookkeeping. Drowning in mounting financial problems and apparent mental illness, Travis tries booze and pills to stay afloat, but nothing, not even golf, works. Travis is in danger of losing his family, his career, and ultimately, his sanity. That is, until he meets a Hindu holy man in rehab who claims to be the final incarnation of Lord Vishnu (the Hindu god who is the preserver of the universe). Suddenly, the tragically shallow Travis is saddled with the responsibility of bettering mankind and saving the world. LORD VISHNU'S LOVE HANDLES is a slyly humorous novel that twists and turns with hilarity. Combining a wildly original plot with witty dialogue and a strangely loveable - if possibly deranged - narrator, Will Clarke's impressive debut will have readers eagerly following Travis on his mind-boggling and comic journey.
