    Since ancient times, Hindus have expressed their love and devotion to their deities through beautiful ornamentation -- dressing and decorating the deities with elaborate clothing, jewelry, and flowers. In this pioneering study of temples in Vrindaban and Jaipur, India, Cynthia Packert takes readers across temple thresholds and into the god Krishna's sacred domain. She describes what devotees see when they behold gorgeously attired representations of the god and why these images look the way they do. She d

    Mahabharata by William Buck( Book )
    14 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,041 libraries worldwide
    "Few works in world literature have inspired so vast an audience, in nations with radically different languages and cultures, as the Mahabharata, a Sanskrit verse epic written some 2,000 years ago. The Mahabharata is probably the largest Indian epic ever composed. It is the story of dynastic struggle, between the Kurus and Pandavas for land. In his introduction, sanskritist B. A. Nooten notes "Apart from William Buck's rendition [no other English version has] been able to capture the blend of religion and martial spirit that pervades the original epic.""--BOOK JACKET

    9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 865 libraries worldwide
    No Hindu god is closer to the soul of poetry than Krishna, and in North India no poet ever sang of Krishna more famously than SurdD=as-or Sur, for short. He lived in the sixteenth century and became so influential that for centuries afterward aspiring Krishna poets signed their compositions orally with his name. This book takes us back to the source, offering a selection of Surdas's poems that were known and sung in the sixteenth century itself. Here we have poems of war, poems to the great rivers, poems of wit and rage, poems where the poet spills out his disappointments. Most of all, though
