- 7 Secrets of the Goddess
About the books: The Hindu trinity series in the living tradition that is Hinduism, divinity manifests as the goddess, who embodies the world, as shiva, who seeks to withdraw from the world, and vishnu, who engages with the world. This three-book set explores their art, rituals, stories and relevance in modern times.
- 7 Secrets from the Hindu Calendar Art
About the book: Hindu mythology abounds with fascinating gods, goddesses and characters whose visual representations through calendar art are equally colourful. Hindu calendar art may seem fantastic and kitsch, but it is in fact the most democratic expression of a mythic imagery that was once restricted to temple walls and palm leaf manuscripts. These portraits of the Hindu pantheon of gods and the stories that surround them can be found on the walls and puja rooms of almost every Hindu household in India. Rich in symbols, each image is a piece of an ancient metaphysical jigsaw puzzle.
