Book Description

 Who was dhrishtabudhi? How did prahlad, the son of the great asura emperor, turn into such a staunch devotee of Lord Vishnu? What is the concept of the sumeru mountain in various Eastern belief systems? What did our ancestors believe about the shape and structure of the created world? Who lives in the Netherworld? Are those worlds dark and forbidding, or as grand as the heavens? These, and many other questions, get answered as MS Chahal, in his inimitable style, delves deep into the Puranic texts and brings to us authentic answers, including many lesser-known snippets, exploring the various versions of sometimes the same myth occurring in the different texts. Chahal then traces for us all the places in the Sri Guru granth Sahib where these allusions and mythological references are to be found, quoting pages and verses. He explains each verse, discussing in detail the context of such usage, and making it quite clear that ultimately the use of these terms is purely for stressing and elucidating the strictly monotheistic thought of Guru Nanak expounded in the eggs. The aficionado of mythology will find in this book a rich lode of carefully culled out details, serving as ready reference. The student of gurba?i will find well-reasoned explanations of these usages. For all categories aficionado, those seeking the Lord through the gurbani, the scholar, as also the General Reader—This compendium will be an invaluable reference book to be kept by the bedside.
