Hindu Gods And Heroes

Hindu Gods and Heroes is a classic Hindu theology study by Lionel D. Barnett. Within Hinduism a large number of personal gods (Ishvaras) are worshipped as murtis. These beings are significantly powerful entities known as devas. The exact nature of belief in regard to each deity varies between differing Hindu beliefs, denominations and philosophies. Often these beings are depicted in humanoid or partially humanoid forms, complete with a set of unique and complex iconography in each case.
