Mythological literature means a description of ancient stories. Mythological literature and characters have a profound influence on the Indian psyche and world public. Puranas are the oldest texts of world literature.
The words of knowledge and morality written in them are still relevant, priceless and the cornerstone of human civilization. Prior to the Puranas, the Vedas had made the Indian public a Vishwaguru. The language and style of the Vedas is difficult. Because of this, the Puranas were created, which are easy and interesting versions of that knowledge.
The complex facts in them are explained through narratives. The topics of the Puranas are ethics, thought, geography, astronomy, politics, culture, social traditions, science and other subjects.
The special fact is that in the Puranas, along with the gods-gods, kings, and sages-sages, common folklores are also mentioned, which depict all aspects of the mythological period.
Mythological characters are also called myths.
The word Myth is the Hindi form of 'Myth' in English. The Hindi word got from 'Acharya Hazari Prasad Dwivedi'. Myth is basically a Greek word meaning 'the subject of speech'. The theme of speech refers to a story, a narrative that was believed to be true in ancient times and gave some mysterious meaning.
The word Myth also has some lexical meanings - an old story or folk belief, narrative of a caste, traditional saga, narration, circle, legend, traditional story of gods and valiant men with analysis of religious beliefs and mysteries of nature. Indian civilization was very prosperous during the period.
Our civilization was so advanced that we still take pride in it. Literary and written material of a language can be called literature. Ancient oral literature is found in tribal languages ??in the world. Indian Sanskrit literature begins with the Rigveda.
Mythological sages like Vyas, Valmiki composed epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana. Bhasa, Kalidas and other poets wrote plays in Sanskrit, a priceless heritage of literature. The characters of all these literary works have given a new direction to the human species.
The four Vedas are the divine knowledge of the Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda and Atharvaveda which were given to the four sages at the beginning of the creation, Agni, Vayu, Aditya and Angira with knowledge of Vedic language Sanskrit.
In these Vedas, God brought that knowledge to humans, which is still available after crores of years. This knowledge of the Vedas is the basis of the overall progress of man.
By reading this knowledge from parents and teachers, the overall physical, intellectual, spiritual and social progress of a human being. As an example, we can take the historical legends like Adi Purush Brahmaji, Maharishi Manu, Patanjali, Kapil, Kanad, Gautama, Vyasa, Jaimini, Rama, Krishna, Chanakya, Dayanand etc. whose Vedas were the basis of physical, intellectual and spiritual progress.
The presence of nature is seen in mythology. Apart from the various dimensions of nature and its interrelations of human beings, in folklore, interesting things are seen of their interaction with animals and birds. Here animal-bird conversations are also in human language, in which social activities are reflected. In these, many such characters of public policy and social behavior are visible, which teach them to avoid evil and move towards good through laws like punishments and boons for good and bad deeds in the society.
