Hitopadesh (HINDI)
by Sri Narain Pandit Description

Our India is full of cultural heritage and literature. Our literature in Hinduism mainly consists of Vedas, the two great Epics viz. the Mahabharata and Ramayana and the Puranas. Almost every Hindu knows about them even though due to lack of time or other reasons, he has not been able to read all of them in minute detail.

The Epics and the Puranas through these legends convey to us about the lives of the people of those times. They tell us about the kings, sages, ascetics, men and women. They describe their religious life, devotion to their Ishta Devata and their politics. Moreover, human nature with their pride, jealousy, virtues and vices, Truth, greatness, penance to attain the Supreme Being and
God’s judgment to triumph of good over evil-all these are described in legend form. They are not just legends written without purpose. They teach us righteousness, code of ethics and propound highest morals.
