Illustrated Bhagavatam Stories
According to the Vedas, India's oldest sacred scriptures, Vedic culture existed on Earth from nearly 3.9 million years. But, 5,000 years ago, that works culture suffered a major setback. The dawning of a new age--and evil age--triggered a sharp downturn in moral, social, and spiritual standards, causing widespread chaos and disunity.
Around 2,500 years later, the remaining followers of that original Vedic culture became known as Hindus. Today, over a billion people still follow Hinduism, the third largest religion in the world. In this volume, the first of an eighteen-volume series, the stories focus mainly on Earth's ancient transition from a Copper Age to the dark Iron Age, the age we are in right now.
Interwoven into the sages' threads of ambition and sacrifice, love and conflict are the Vedic concepts of vegetarianism, astrology, the twists of karma, mystic yoga, the demigods controlling our universe, and more. The finale confronts an age-old problem, the never-ending conflict between good and evil and concludes with a Vedic prophecy: the forces of evil will soon subside again--about now--making way for a very special 10,000 year Golden Age.
