A Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology and Religion, Geography, History and Literature
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121509424 / 9788121509428; Reprint; Paperback; New; 
John Dowson's A Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology and Religion, Geography, History, and Literature is a handy reference-work prepared as an aid to the scholars and lay readers interested in these aspects of the past of India. It contains information on a vast array of subjects, concepts, personages, names, events, etc., which frequently occur in the ancient Indian literature and religious works. For the uninitiated, the Dictionary is a useful guide for understanding the obscure and the unknown subjects. The present Dictionary is not merely an alphabetical list of terms and subjects; it contains, compact and condensed information culled together from various sources about each subject. The author has primarily depended upon authoritative translations and works of eminent scholars for the compilation of the Dictionary. Besides the literal meaning, the compiler has also given a full description of the subjects with necessary details. For those interested in delving deeper into the controversial subjects included in the Dictionary, references of learned articles and European works have also been supplied. A brief Introduction of the subject outlining the history of the works alluded to in the Dictionary, a Sanskrit Index and a General Index add to the usefulness of the volume and is a must for every bookshelf.

3 John Dowson
A Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology and Religion: Geography, History and Literature (Andhra University Philosophical Studies: 10)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124601089 / 9788124601082; Softcover; New; 
Professor Dowson's Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology and Religion is now offered not only in a fresh format, but in a fresh, state-of-the-art typeset as well. Incorporated here, in addition, are standard, meticulously worked-out diacritical marks -- as rather mechanical aids in comprehending the transliteration of Indic sounds, more specially of the Sanskrit alphabet, into English. In its alphabetically arranged articles of varying lengths, the Dictionary tries to encompass the vast Hindu pantheon, in all its complexity and symbolic/metaphorical representations. Covering, thus, a whole mix of mythological characters: gods and demons, prajapatis and raksasas, it also presents explanatory accounts of important events/episodes, legends, literary works, and even geographical locales, associated with Hindu myths and religious beliefs. Acclaimed worldwide ever since its first appearance, the Dictionary sustains its essentially undiminishing appeal to the scholars and general readers seeking to discover for themselves the awesome world of Hindu mythology and the grand cosmogonic design it unveils.Printed Pages: 448. 100507
