Tales from the Upanishads includes wonderful stories about Shvetaketu, Raikva the Simple Cart Driver and other classic excerpts from India's mighty scripture.
The Upanishads form the last part of the Vedas, which are collectively know as Vedanta. A daunting subject to put it mildly, these comics offer a simple yet surprisingly profound glimpse into the vast sacred texts of India.
These comics are endearing to the young and old. Reading them is an inspiring and fun way to learn about India's saints and sages - and it's a lot easier than studying the Vedas! Comics are also a great way for children to learn, which is why they are an integral part of most Indian households. These incredible tales from the scriptures make Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne seem tame! These are the DC Comics for the ages.
We carry Amar Chitra Katha comics as they have the most consistent quality. We import all of our comics direct from India. The quality is generally good, but please make allowance for the fact that they are printed economically in India. Occasionally the cover art is slightly different from show.
