Journey into the amazing world of Hindu mythology with Devdutt Pattanaik
- Why are most temples dedicated to Vishnu, Shiva or the goddess, but not to Brahma or Indra?
- How are an asura, rakshasa, yaksha and pishacha different from each other?
- Why did the Pandavas find themselves in naraka rather than swarga?
Over several months, EPIC Channel’s ground-breaking show Devlok with Devdutt Pattanaik has enthralled countless viewers. Here, finally, is the book based on the first series of the ever-popular show, which will take you on a scintillating tour through the myriad stories, symbols and rituals that form the basis of Hindu culture.
Prepare to be surprised and thrilled as Devdutt narrates magical tales about larger-than-life figures–gods, goddesses, demi-gods and demons who you thought you knew well but didn’t. Learn about the intricacies of Hindu thought as he explains the origin and meaning of different creation myths and throws light on why we believe in a cyclical–not linear–concept of time.

“ Those who like to watch the serial by the same name on Epic Channel, this book is a must buy for you. Lot of things have been explained in very simple logic. Many times people think how this is possible or that is possible, without realising that many things are used as metaphor and not to be taken at face value. Really good book in simple language. ”
