Descriptions of the symbols of Indian culture and the myths surrounding them. An interesting approach, though somewhat dry. Has some great pictures, wish they were annotated with dates. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0691017786, Paperback)

This book interprets for the Western mind the key motifs of India's legend, myth, and folklore, taken directly from the Sanskrit, and illustrated with seventy plates of Indian art. It is primarily an introduction to image-thinking and picture-reading in Indian art and thought, and it seeks to make the profound Hindu and Buddhist intuitions of the riddles of life and death recognizable not merely as Oriental but as universal elements.
