La mitología hindú, una de las más antiguas del mundo, es a menudo es tan desconocida como fascinante para el lector occidental. Con una tradición oral que se remonta a más de cinco mil años, los mitos y leyendas del hinduismo son probablemente unos de los más ricos y variados de todos cuantos se han desarrollado, y su religión cuenta con uno de los panteones más diversos y variados. Precisamente, por la enorme cantidad de dioses (más de dos mil, y miles héroes y leyendas), a veces puede resultar confuso adentrarse en este mundo fascinante. En este volumen se presenta un riguroso, completo y bien trazado ensayo en el que poder atisbar la grandeza de los mitos indios. En este volumen, además de los dos textos más representativosa de la mitología hindú el RAMAYANA y el MAHABHARATA, también encontraremos muchas otras leyendas e historias protagonizadas por los héroes y dioses hindúes. También hay capítulos acerca de las figuras más relevantes del panteón hindú, como Krishna, o Shiva, y la aparición de Buda, todo ello presentado de una forma ordenada y de fácil acceso al lector. De la mano de la estudiosa anglo-india Sister Nivedita, que fue una de las primeras en popularizar la cultura hindú en Inglaterra, nos adentramos en los misterios y belleza de una de las mitologías más hermosas. * Sister Nivedita (nacida como Margaret Elizabeth Noble, 1867-1911), fue una escritora, y activista anglo-india, que desarrolló gran parte de su actividad en la India colonial británica de principios del siglo XX. Discípula del maestro hindú Swami Vivekananda y amiga de R. Tagore, desde 1895 vivió en la India, convirtiéndose en una referencia en el activismo para la liberación del país. También viajó por el país y estudió la religión hindú y budista, sobre las que escribiría más de una docena de ensayos, que fueron acogidos con gran éxito en su patria natal, antes de su prematura muerte a los 43 años.

The Jedi in the Lotus is the first-ever examination of the Star Wars universe from a Hindu perspective, illuminating many hitherto undiscovered aspects of the background and meaning of the widely acclaimed film series. We are shown how its creators were influenced by the famed mythologist, Joseph Campbell, whose reading of the ancient Indian Epics, the Ramayana and Mahabharata, can be seen throughout the Star Wars films. This book also demonstrates how the metaphysical understanding of the Jedi Knights and the divinity conceived of as 'the Force' have resonances with teachings passed down by Hindu gurus and mystics for centuries, and how fantastic worlds and technology similar to that of the Star Wars universe were described in myths that are millennia old - and may even have had some basis in reality. Finally, The Jedi in the Lotus shows us how the Hindu traditions at the basis of Star Wars offer an alternative vision to the purely materialistic, soulless world of modernity. Steven J. Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa) is an initiated disciple of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. He is also founding editor of the Journal of Vaishnava Studies and associate editor of Back to Godhead. He has published twenty-one books in numerous languages, including the recent Essential Hinduism (Rowman & Littlefield, 2008); The Yoga of Kirtan: Conversations on the Sacred Art of Chanting (FOLK Books, 2008); and Krishna's Other Song: A New Look at the Uddhava Gita (Praeger-Greenwood, 2010). 'In conclusion, I can only say that The Jedi in the Lotus is a breakthrough book when it comes to understanding the mythic depth of the Star Wars epics. Steven J. Rosen uses his masterful grasp of the Eastern traditions to explain the secrets of the most successful film series ever. This book also shows us why Joseph Campbell loved the wisdom tales from India, and, for those who found the Star Wars adventures memorable, this is a truly illuminating book.' - Dr. Jonathan Young, from the Foreword

"Our modern society is based on greed, envy and power. When you consider all this as it actually is, this overpowering commercialism indicates degeneration and basic immorality. We are destroying the earth and all the things on it for our gratification. To radically change this pattern of our life, which is the basis of all society, is the educator's responsibility." Written over a period of fifteen years, Krishnamurti's letters to his schools contain the essence of his teachings. Krishnamurti aims at making the reader understand the way he thinks, how all of us are influenced, moulded to conform to a pattern and free him from the limitations of his mind. Education is to unfold the full human potential.

By ekah of course is meant Kalida'sa, the author of Abhijna'nas'akuntala, Raghuwamsa, etc., and it is him we are here concerned with. Of his personal history very little is definitely known. The name itself signifies 'a servant of the goddess Durga' it is probable that like so many other names it was bestowed without any reference to its original signification. But on it is based a tradition which represents him to have been an illiterate person, till by the favour of the goddess he suddenly found himself endowed with the poetic gift. Ka'li-da'sa is curiously reticent about himself in his works; nor are any records of him by other hands now available. Whatever we can say about his life is based on external and secondary sources and must necessarily remain a matter of more or less guess-work. His birth-place was probably somewhere in Malwa and from his glowing description of Ujjayini it would appear that he was a resident of that city. Legends are current about his having been a court-poet of King Vikramaditya, (a matter to which we shall refer further on); and his works, it is true, show considerable acquaintance with court life. He was a Bra'hmana by caste and a devout worshipper of Siva, though by no means a narrow-minded sectarian. He seems to have travelled a great deal throughout India; his graphic description of the Himalayan scenes reads very much like that of an eye-witness.

“Astonishing. . . . [Satyamurti’s Mahabharata] brings [the] past alive . . . as though it were a novel in finely crafted verse.”—Vinay Dharwadker Originally composed approximately two thousand years ago, the Mahabharata tells the story of a royal dynasty, descended from gods, whose feud over their kingdom results in a devastating war. But it contains much more than conflict. An epic masterpiece of huge sweep and magisterial power, “a hundred times more interesting” than the Iliad and the Odyssey, writes Wendy Doniger in the introduction, the Mahabharata is a timeless work that evokes a world of myth, passion, and warfare while exploring eternal questions of duty, love, and spiritual freedom. A seminal Hindu text, which includes the Bhagavad Gita, it is also one of the most important and influential works in the history of world civilization. Innovatively composed in blank verse rather than prose, Carole Satyamurti’s English retelling covers all eighteen books of the Mahabharata. This new version masterfully captures the beauty, excitement, and profundity of the original Sanskrit poem as well as its magnificent architecture and extraordinary scope.
