The triumph of the snake goddess by Kaiser Haq( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Snakes exist in the myths of most societies, often embodying magical, mysterious forces. Snake cults were especially important in eastern India and Bangladesh, where for centuries worshippers of the indigenous snake goddess Manasa resisted the competing religious influences of Indo-Europeans and Muslims. The result was a corpus of verse texts narrating Manasās struggle to win universal adoration. This book retells this epic tale in modern English. It opens with a creation myth and a synopsis of Indian mythology, zooming in on Manasā, the miraculous child of the god Shiva. Manasā easily wins the allegiance of everyone except the wealthy merchant Chand, who holds fast in his devotion to Shiva despite seeing his sons massacred. A celestial couple is incarnated on earth to fulfill Manasā's design: Behula, wife to one of Chand's slain sons, undertakes a harrowing odyssey to restore him to life with Manasā's help, ultimately persuading Chand to bow to the snake goddess
