The Little Book of Hindu Deities: From the Goddess of Wealth to the Sacred Cow 

Paperback – October 31, 2006

A Pixar animator offers a colorful, close-up look at the most important gods and goddesses of the Hindu religion, in a collection of full-color illustrations, accompanied by concise profiles and the stories of Hindu mythology. Original. 40,000 first printing.

Pixar animator and Academy Award–nominated director Sanjay Patel (Sanjay’s Super Team) brings to life Hinduism’s most important gods and goddesses (and one sacred stone) in fun, full-color illustrations, each accompanied by a short, lively profile. 

The Little Book of Hindu Deities is chock-full of monsters, demons, noble warriors, and divine divas. Find out why Ganesha has an elephant’s head (his father cut his off!); why Kali, the goddess of time, is known as the “Black One” (she’s a bit goth); and what “Hare Krishna” really means.

“Throw another ingredient in the American spirituality blender. Pop culture is veering into Hinduism.”—USA Today
