MANASĀ AND NETA The wild, bizarre and epic tale of the serpent goddess Manasā and her sister Neta has inspired poets in India for more than 500 years. It is more than a single narrative – what we have today is a stream of stories added to over the centuries by up to 50 important poets, all of whom played with it as they liked, extending, modifying, omitting and embellishing the core material. Included are elements from folktales, vrata rituals, verses from ballads, and episodes from sacred literature such as the Mahabharata. Order your copy now.

“Sometimes, what appears to be horrible has a valid and divine function in the world. Lamaštu is an exalted goddess, a victorious lady, a ruler of mankind, and performs the tasks given to her by the assembly of the gods. Most of her errands may seem savage, but the Mesopotamians were aware that they had to be done.” – Jan Fries
