Summary
In Hindu mythology one notable figure named Viśvāmitra is said to have transformed himself from a king into a Brahmin sage by amassing great ascetic power, or tapas. This book examines the rich mosaic of legends about Visvamitra that are found across the Hindu mythological tradition and offers a comprehensive historical analysis of how the 'storyworlds' conjured up through these various tellings have, time and again, served to adapt, upgrade, and reinforce the social identity of real-world Brahmin communities, from the ancient Vedic past up to the hypermodern present
