Myths and symbols in Indian art and civilization by Heinrich Robert Zimmer( Book )

111 editions published between 1946 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 2,699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book interprets for the Western mind the key motifs of India's legend, myth, and folklore, taken directly from the Sanskrit, and illustrated with seventy plates of Indian art. It is primarily an introduction to image-thinking and picture-reading in Indian art and thought, and it seeks to make the profound Hindu and Buddhist intuitions of the riddles of life and death recognizable not merely as Oriental but as universal elements

The king and the corpse; tales of the soul's conquest of evil by Heinrich Robert Zimmer( Book )

45 editions published between 1948 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from Eastern and Western literatures, Heinrich Zimmer presents a selection of stories linked together by their common concern for the problem of our eternal conflict with the forces of evil. Beginning with a tale from the Arabian Nights, this theme unfolds in legends from Irish paganism, medieval Christianity, the Arthurian cycle, and early Hinduism. In the retelling of these tales, Zimmer discloses the meanings within their seemingly unrelated symbols and suggests the philosophical wholeness of this assortment of myth."--Amazon.com
Artistic form and yoga in the sacred images of India by Heinrich Robert Zimmer( Book )

40 editions published between 1926 and 1990 in German and English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pioneering work opened C.G. Jung's eyes to the psychological and spiritual significance of the Indian mandala, and it remains the clearest introduction to the essence of Indian art and yoga for both the specialist and general reader. Heinrich Zimmer (1890-1943) was the first to identify the radical difference between Western classical and Indian art. His revolutionary approach to understanding the stylized, often sexual, sacred symbols of India was simply to take them on their own terms as techniques of spiritual transformation
