The Symbolism of Hindu Gods and Rituals
A practical text explaining the allegorical significance of gods and goddesses; rituals and festivals; invocations and prayers. It educates a spiritual aspirant on the philosophical aspect of religious practices.
The art of God-symbolism is ancient. Hinduism has perfected this art. For centuries it has been neglected with the result that the Hindu symbols, rituals and festivals have been shorn of their philosophical significance and reduced to mere superstition. The Hindus have either been blindly accepting or rejecting them. This book explains their symbolic character which gives the deep inner meaning to the different forms of Hindu worship.
