Pictures are taken from various sources for spreading knowledge.

this is a non- commercial blog. Thanks for your great pictures.

I used my I pad to take over 25 pictures from the book titled MYTHS OF THE HINDUS AND THE BUDDHISTS by The Sister Nivedita and Ananda K.Coomaraswamy, London 1913.

The book is available at SOAS, University of London library. With a good camera one can get pictures with higher resolution. The contents describe each picture and the name of the painter. Most of the scenes can be recognised by good Hindus who is thorough with Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Purana stories.

I post it in two parts. Here is part 1
