The Bhagawat Purana sings of the glory of Vishnu and his incarnations. It is one of the most popular of the eighteen major puranas, and its recitations lasting for a week, called Bhagawat Saptaha, are held all over India. The special collection of nine volumes of Amar Chitra Katha, based on the tenth chapter of the Bhagawat Purana, lovingly narrate the story of Krishna in detail. The episodes in the life of Krishna are described with vivid visuals and simple language.

I am in love with blue gods, and Lord Vishnu was the original blue god, the inspiration for James Cameron's Na'vi. I've grown up reading about Vishnu, writing stories about him, drawing pictures of his incarnation, Krishna, and so an illustrated book that chronicles his ten (dasha) incarnations (avatar) has to be at the top of my legends-and-mythology list.

23-June-2018: Picking this up again as research for my second novel in which my aim will be to take readers to historical India, to a world of royal opulence and hedonism, treachery, heartbreak and love against the odds. And yes, it will be a gay fantasy, only with handsome brown heroes. :)


------------
Highly recommended for lovers of epic mythology and warfare, where the gods fight with men, warriors are granted divine weapons, and queens embody strength, majesty and grace to inspire love and respect and, in some cases, fear. Anyone who enjoyed the Iliad and is interested in reading about different cultures will likely enjoy this epic, set against the panorama of Indian royalty and mythology.

The Mahabharata is a sweeping tale of political intrigue, heroism and feats of supernatural ability. Add in beauty, love, divinity, nobility, and flawed characters pitted against each other in devastating conflict (both psychological and physical) and you get the ultimate triumph of good over evil. It covers just about every human emotion and act one can imagine. It even has LGBTQ themes (Shikhandi who's a badass trans prince(ss) warrior, Ardhanarishvara, who's a hermaphrodite formed from the joining of Shiva and Vishnu).

Seemingly banal events are often allegorical. E.g. Princess Draupadi ends up being married to all 5 Pandava brothers because their mother told Draupadi's original (and only) husband, Arjuna, to share his winnings with his brothers, not knowing it was a wife he had won. Easy-peasy polyandry, right? Not really :) We learn that this happened because Draupadi had asked Lord Shiva for a boon--to be married to the perfect man. However, as there is no ONE perfect man, she had to be married to 5 different men who each exemplified different virtues: justice & morality, strength, dedication, love & beauty, and intelligence.

It's an utterly brilliant tale and the Amar Chitra Katha illustrated, hardbound trilogy is one of the easiest and most entertaining versions of this epic to consume. And it's a great introduction to a rich and vibrant eastern mythology. Highly recommended, even though I said that already.

Amar Chitra Katha publishes popular stories about Hindu deities and mythology in this drawn series. The story of Krishna is popular due to his uniquely drawn blue skin (in many books he is drawn differently, and he is actually said to be black in skin color), making him recognizable to children. The stories are written in a comic book fashion and help children to easily understand the life and story of Krishna. This book appeals to children ages 7 - 12.
