Publisher's Summary

Shiva, ‘the destroyer’ among the Hindu trinity (of gods), is depicted in many contradictory manners. He is an ascetic who wears animal skin, his body smeared with ashes. Contradictory to his wild nature, he is also depicted as having a family, with a beautiful wife and two children. There are many more such varied representations of Shiva, the most prominent of these being the Linga and the Nataraja. The author, Devdutt Pattanaik, introduces listeners to these varied aspects and representations and then sets about interpreting them. He explains the different anomalies and conflicts in beliefs as well as the symbolism, rituals and reasons behind Hindu worship.

Please note: This audiobook is in Hindi.

The reading is not correct by 100%

In chapter 1 where narrator is reading difference between human and animal (manushya and pashu) .. it should have read as(as per book) “pashu ka mai to hota hai ........” instead it says “manushya ka mai to hota hai.....”
Which creates a doubt if i have to check book too for reliable translation/reading.

Interesting book

I have seen Devlok in Netflix and was impressed by Devdutt Ji.
So much to learn. The best part about authors approach is that this does not feel like any propaganda of religion. It explains things in a very profound way.
