A talk by Anuradha Dooney of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

Hindu traditions are full of fabulous stories of monsters, milk oceans, magic, and heroism that defy all reason. Are these tales true or false? How do Hindu texts and teachers view these accounts and do they have any relevance today? This talk draws from the Upanishads, Puranas, Mahabharata, and Ramayana to weave together a discussion on the meaning of myth in Hindu tradition.
