Professor Dowsons Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology and Religion is now offered not only in a fresh format, but in a fresh, state-of-the-art typeset as well. Incorporated here, in addition, are standard, meticulously worked-out diacritical marks- as rather mechanical aids in comprehending the transliteration of Indic sounds, more specially of the Sanskrit alphabet, into English. In its alphabetically arranged articles of varying lengths, the Dictionary tries to encompass the vast Hindu pantheon, in all its complexity and symbolicmetaphorical representations. Covering, thus, a whole mix of mythological characters: gods and demons, prajapatis and raksasas, it also presents explanatory accounts of important eventsepisodes, legends, literary works, and even geographical locales, associated with Hindu myths and religious beliefs. Acclaimed worldwide ever since its first appearance, the Dictionary sustains its essentially undiminishing appeal to the scholars and general readers seeking to discover for themselves the awesome world of Hindu mythology and the grand cosmogonic design it unveils.
