“Hindu Mythology” is a new, original book for the enthusiasts of this type of literature. Based on a number of classical Hindu texts, the author describes the most fascinating and extraordinary beings having magical and supernatural skills. The book presents a myriad of Hindu deities, such as Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, mythical beasts, various hybrids, as well as demons and vampires known from Hindu beliefs. The creatures are both good and evil, beautiful and terrifying to look at, and so peculiar that one cannot remain indifferent upon seeing them – let us just mention Navagunjara, a creature composed of nine different animals. The reader can get to know love stories, such as the one of king Pururavas and nymph Urvashi, and stories of battles and skirmishes between people and demons, such as the defeat of demon Bakasura in a fight with Bhima. The text is accompanied by Mikita Rasolka’s illustrations – as colourful as the myths collected in the book.
