Classical Hindu mythology : a reader in the Sanskrit Purāṇas by Cornelia Dimmitt( Book )

19 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in English and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mahapuranas embody the received tradition of Hindu mythology. This anthology contains fresh translations of these myths, only a few of which have ever been available in English before, thus providing a rich new portion of Hindu mythology. In their introductions, the editors provide a historical setting in which to discuss Hindu mythology as well as a full analysis of its basic sources. The many names given the gods and goddesses in the Sanskrit texts have been retained since their multiplicity is an essential part of the richness of the original. The editors have provided a thorough glossary to make these names accessible
