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

Two plays of ancient India : The little clay cart, The minister's seal by Śūdraka( Book )

7 editions published between 1968 and 1971 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Minister's Seal, ascribed to Prince Visakhadatta (6th century), represents another aspect of Indian drama: the semihistorical or political play. Except for two female guards all the characters are male, and love has no place in the plot. Canakya, the Machiavellian minister of King Candragupta, wishes to secure for his master the services of Raksasa, whose astuteness and loyalty had long been devoted to the previous ruler. In a succession of schemes, counterschemes, and subschemes, he achieves his purpose. The twentieth-century reader will find here striking parallels to his own time, in which propaganda, spies, double agents, and political coups are part of the daily news
