1 Margaret and James Stutley
A Dictionary of Hinduism. Its Mythology, Folklore and Development 1500 BC-AD 1500
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510740 / 9788121510745; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This encyclopaedic dictionary has proved indispensable for all those interested in Hinduism, whether specialist, student or general reader. The dictionary comprises about 2,500 romanised Sanskrit subject-headings with their English equivalents, explanations and etymology. An index of English subjects with Sanskrit equivalents, and an extensive bibliography are appended. The dictionary indexes and describes the mythology, folklore, religion, philosophy, literature and history of Hinduism over a period of more than two and a half millennia, thus dispelling many commonly held misguided beliefs. It reveals much of the real significance of Hinduism, which many would say shows an unsurpassed continuity and genius for analysis and synthesis. Initially an attempt to come to terms with manís physical environment and subsequently the mysterious world beyond it, Hinduism recognised energy to be the ultimate source of manifestation, as its horizon expanded. This comprehensive work provides an invaluable survey of the long vista of Hinduism. Printed Pages: 392. 016348

3 Margaret Stutley
Hindu Deities: A Mythological Dictionary with Illustrations
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2006; 812151164X / 9788121511643; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Hinduism is the term now used to summarize the religious aspirations of the majority of Indians. It includes a variety of highly intellectual, metaphysical and philosophical systems, as well as the naÔve demonology and magico-religious beliefs of the masses. Hinduism is also a synthesis of three, originally separate religious traditions: the Dravidian, the Aryan and the aboriginal. Although many Westerners regard Hinduism as polytheistic, this view does not take into consideration the sophisticated basis of the tradition as seen in the ancient Rgveda where a transcendental Oneness is perceived that manifests Itself only partially in this world to "create" apparent forces which appear to human beings as separate deities, thus there are as many gods as there are aspects of creation. Many deities are depicted with a multiplicity of arms, heads, and emblems, so distinguishing them from the ordinary mortals as well as pointing to the immense potentiality of the Divine that is forever beyond the comprehension of human beings.

4 Margaret Stutley
The Illustrated Dictionary of Hindu Iconography
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510872 / 9788121510875; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Indian art is becoming increasingly popular in the West, but it cannot be appreciated fully without some knowledge of the religious and philosophical background. Margaret Stutley covers all aspects of Hindu iconography, and explains that its roots lie far back in the style of prehistoric art which has remained part of a living tradition for 7,000 years and which resembles the folk murals of many Indian houses today. The dictionary demonstrates the rich profusion of cults, divinities, symbols, sects, and philosophical views encompassed by the Hindu religious tradition. It shows how Hinduism is a synthesis of three, originally separate, religious traditions: the Dravidian (from before the third millennium), the Aryan, and the aboriginal. It makes clear that every part of an icon has some symbolic significance: the material used, the height and shape of the plinths, the type of sculptural relief, the size and position of the figure or figures, the garments, headdress, ornaments, colours, emblems, attributes and weapons, as well as any accompanying minor deities, associated animals, birds or plants.
