Summary

You might know that Greek gods interfered on both sides of the Trojan War, but did you know that Hindu gods fought alongside both the Pandavas and Kauravas in the Mahabharata? In the same way the ancient Egyptians worshiped Ra above all else, did you know that the monkey-god, Hanuman, gained his wisdom from the sun? Did you know that Krishna and Hercules are often linked to a past that includes Alexander the Great's conquests? And just as Noah had his ark, one of Lord Vishnu's avatars had a similar tale for Hinduism. All of us share the same stories because the things that unite us are far greater than the things that divide us.

I wrote this book because I wanted my loved ones to hear about Rama and Krishna and Saraswati as they also learned of Thor and Hercules, of Horus and Ra, of Noah, and Moses. In these 25 tales, you will be immersed in Hinduism in a way that highlights the traits I found most compelling in my research - tales of love, pride, virtue, and fate.

A good reference book

A good reference book as a complement to Mythology for your home library. However, I was expecting more or myths that authors view on them but overall a this was a good read.

Very informative and interesting to listen

Very informative and interesting to read! The book was thoroughly exemplified. I remember taking up Greek mythology in our English class during Junior years, and I think it would be more intriguing and compelling if we had this manual, because it is complete with all general information needed to help us more figure out the names and all the sort.

I really enjoyed this book!

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Listening to Greek mythology is one of the childhood hobbies, which I really can't overcome with. My favorite goddess is Athena. He is the goddess of wisdom. I totally love her. I can't ask for more for this book. I really enjoyed reading this book. Thumbs up!

Great Greek Gods

I love the Greek Gods, always have a will, but this story is my favorite about the Greek Gods. And the narrator is amazing. The author also put a lot of funny bits in the story.

I love this book!

I'm so happy that I got this book, and I bought the real book for my daughter and we have a good time talking about Greek goods now. I can warmly recommend this book if you like to know more about Greek goods in a modern way.

Wonderful book

I listened to it about a thousand times until I got a new book and listen to it again!!! It covered both the mythological characters we all know and some I'd never heard of. It is awesome!

Hindu Anthology

I never really saw any part of Hinduism outside of that sphere of my life, unless it was because we were talking about religion in World History or Human Geography (in which case, I sat through class looking upon my religion through the lens of a fascinated spectator). Love, Pride, Virtue, and Fate aims to change that.

Worth to have it.

Written in an easy-to-understand and colloquial manner and simplified just so that those unfamiliar can grasp what’s happening while those familiar can recognize details (and remark on differences between what’s written and the story they heard growing up), Love, Pride, Virtue, and Fate is an entertaining study and primer to Hinduism.

best book

Was downloaded, listened to and sounds fine. Not the most recognized song, so it was cool to see this blast from the past available on Amazon. It's what my heart yearned for (just) now.
