Myths of the Hindus & Buddhists

Myths of the Hindus and Buddhists Myths of the Hindus & Buddhists is a major work by The Sister Nivedita (Margaret E. Noble) and Ananda K. Coomaraswamy, published in 1913. The book aims at presenting and retelling all the major myths and collections of scriptures of ancient India in one single book. This task could seem impossible because of the vast amount of written material, but they have succeeded in outlining the most important works and how they together form the basis for Hinduism and Buddhism. Most interesting, since I would prefer to read the major works in their more original and full translations, are the conclusions in the book. Here Ananda and Nivedita summarise the Indian theology in a few pages. It is an excellent reference.
