Publisher's Summary

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.

best book

Was downloaded, listened to and sounds fine. Not the most recognized song, so it was cool to see this blast from the past available on Amazon. It's what my heart yearned for (just) now.

Easy to understand

I was both enlightened and satisfied reading about these connections; I am now better able to apply these learnings to my life, many of which I have heard before, but without such depth of analysis. Thank you for a wonderful read!

Wonderful book

Bharat has done an incredible job painting vivid pictures of his short pieces and making singular comparisons to the Bible, for instance.

Great book

They are written for an audience of any age, but I hope children will do so. Our history is important to know, especially in the context of other religious lore.

I love this book!

I'm so happy that I got this book, and I bought the real book for my daughter and we have a good time talking about Greek goods now. I can warmly recommend this book if you like to know more about Greek goods in a modern way.

Wow

The section on ceremonies and festivals gives a good practical description of events such as marriage and birth, and religious festivals including Diwali. I was particularly interested in the description of the Mahabharata texts, finding out it is the longest poem ever written. The book has given me a solid understanding of religion as a whole.
