Stories of Shiva : 5-in-1( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wandering through his kingdom disguised as an ordinary citizen, Emperor Akbar is struck by the intelligence of a young man who is able to recognise him. The young man is Birbal, and Akbar invites him to his court. One of the navaratnas (nine gems) of Akbar's court, Birbal is known for his sharp intelligence and wit. Everyone comes to Birbal when they are in trouble - be it an impoverished old lady, an artist, or Akbar himself. Birbal's wisdom and honesty makes him one of Akbar's most trusted courtiers. He outwits and teases everyone who is at fault, from the smallest cheat to the emperor himself. He makes sure that justice is served, and that even the most helpless person is given his due in the Mughal court"--Page 4 of cover
Ganga( Book )

9 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ganga's cleansing waters were urgently needed on earth. But, the dauntless daughter of the mountain god was not to be easily subdued as her waters darted about uncontrollably. Only Shiva could tame her by entangling her in the coils of his hair. When her waters could finally wriggle their way out, they were calmer and purer. They turned arid wastes alive and filled up the oceans. Since those ancient times when King Bhagiratha sought her help, Ganga, whether roaring or placid, dancing or sombre, continues to enchant one and all with her incomparable beauty"--Provided by publisher
Vālmiki's Rāmāyaṇa by Vālmīki( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ramayana is the story of Rama, the prince of Ayodhya. Poet Valmiki describes Rama as a dutiful son, loving brother, devoted husband, fierce warrior and wise statesman, of pleasant manners and speech. Rama is above all an upholder of Dharma so it is no wonder that he is hailed as an avatar or incarnation of Lord Vishnu"--Page 4 of cover

Devotees of Vishnu( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bhagawat Purana, from which the stories in Tales of Vishnu have been adapted, abounds in narratives of the benevolent acts of Vishnu. The three stories in Tales of Narada tell us how Narada, although a divine sage, often fell prey to temptation and pride and became conceited. Fortunately for Narada, every time he succumbed to human weaknesses, Vishnu was beside him to pull him through. The story of Prahlad talks of a young boy's unerring devotion to Vishnu despite his father's tyranny. Ultimately, Vishnu destroys young Prahlad's persecutor and rewards his faith. Dhruva and Ashtavakra deals with the loyal Dhruva, Lord Vishnu's five-year-old devotee, and the courageous Ashtavakra, who was born with eight physical deformities and overcame all odds with sheer perseverance and knowledge. The churning of the ocean narrates the story of how the devas procured divine nectar from the Ocean of Milk and became immortal upon drinking it"--Page 4 of cover

"Over the centuries India has been ruled by men and women who as great conquerors and able administrators have shaped the history of this land. This Pancharatna features five such rulers. Chandragupta Maurya defeated his rivals to found the Mauryan dynasty which reached unprecedented power under his grandson, Ashoka, who later saw the futility of war and renounced violence. Samudragupta of the Gupta dynasty, was a military genius. Harsha ascended the throne at age 16. His story has been taken from the Harshacharita and from the accounts of the Chinese traveller, Hiuen Tsang. Krishnadeva Raya of the Vijayanagara dynasty was described by the Portuguese traveller, Domingo Paes, as the 'perfect king'"--Page 4 of cover
