A selection of stories from the greatest of the Puranas, The Srimad Bhagavatam.
- 198 pages, Indian paperback
The Srimad Bhagavatam is known as the greatest of the Puranas. It has been for centuries one of the favorite religious texts of India.
The Bhagavata Purana includes many stories well known in Hinduism, including the various avatars of Vishnu and the life and pastimes of his complete incarnation, Krishna or Svayam Bhagavan.
Religious truths are here presented in the form of stories for young and old alike. The selection includes many favorites: the story of Prahlada, of Dhruva, of King Bharata, and, or course, of Krishna. This is not a scholarly work, but a book of folk tales, which nevertheless is full of profound teachings.
Illustrated throughout with black and white line drawings. Written mainly for hose unfamiliar with the stories from the Bhagavatam.
Excellent retelling for children
This is a good retelling using modern English. The line drawings also are as good as the picture on the cover. My son has finished reading the stories. Wish a larger book with all the stories were created by the same author who seems to have a skill in entertaining children with BhagavAn SRee KR^shNa's stories.
Recent purchase from VC
Very good experience. The product arrived fast, neatly packed. The book is very good.
The only wish is that all merchants, including VC, charged the customer only the real postage in Internet transactions. Then this purchase would have been perfect. Of course, alas, we do not live in a perfect world!
