Garuda Purana Devdutt Pattanaik PDF
Why do Hindus feed their ancestors? Why is burning the dead preferred to the building of tombs? Are Swarga and Naraka not the Hindu equivalent of Heaven and Hell? Does Hinduism have a concept like Judgement Day? What is the impact of death on Hindu notions of womanhood and caste? Is the Vedic approach to death different from the Tantric one? What is the difference between Bhuta, Pishacha, Preta, Peter, and Vetala?
Death, rebirth, and immortality are deeply ingrained in the Hindu mind through ritual and storytelling. It is not just tragic, but also ambiguous when it comes to death. A journey has come to an end, but a new one is beginning at the same time. Death is inauspicious, a source of impurity, even though the dead are venerable.
Devdutt Pattanaik explores the many concepts surrounding death across the spectrum of Hindu mythology, tracing some practices back as far as Harappan times in Garuda Purana and Other Hindu Ideas on Death, Rebirth, and Immortality. As a guide to the choices we make in life, the book explores the Hindu response to death.
