Studies of Hindu gods and goddesses

As a follow-up to the statue hunt, each child picked a Hindu god or goddess to study in more detail. Here are some of them:

Kali the goddess of Time and Change, death, the annihilator of evil forces

Shiva as Daksinamurthy the perfect guru

Shiva as the dancing Nataraja, destroyer of the universe

The studies above were based on drawings in Hindu Gods and Goddesses by Swami Harshananda. We have also been using The Essentials of Hinduism: A Comprehensive Overview of the World's Oldest Religion as a teacher's resource, and read aloud from Tales of Hindu Gods and Goddesses, along with material I've adapted from online sources.
