    Book details

Lakshmi massages Vishnu's feet. Is this male domination? Kali stands on Shiva's chest. Is this female domination? Shiva is half a woman. Is this gender equality? Why then is Shakti never half a man? Taken literally, stories, symbols and rituals of Hindu mythology have much to say about gender relationships. Taken symbolically, they reveal many more things about humanity and nature. Which is the correct reading? The third title in the bestselling 'Hindu Trinity' series focuses on the Goddess, and respected mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik tries to unravel the secrets locked within her stories, symbols and rituals.

Dr Devdutt Pattanaik is a medical doctor by training, a marketing manager by profession and a mythologist by passion. He lectures extensively on the relevance of sacred stories, symbols and rituals in modern times.

    As usual Devdutt is master in interpreting the myth in an understandable manner to ordinary folks. He removes the notion of superstition from myth and practices that evolved out of myth and brings into the context in which the mythology was created. Rather than traditional western way of dismissing anything that is not objective he digs deeper into a very real realm of Human subjective and psychological views.

    Starts off great and then wanes a bit towards the middle chapters. But all in all, the reading was quite fascinating, especially the chapter about the Goddess. Highly recommended for Hindu mythology. Style of writing is very interesting. So direct...

    Well written and informative. A treasure trove! The last chapter seemed a bit repetitive and can be improved upon in a future version.
