Dr. Devdutt Pattanaik on Mythology

sI always knew there was more to mythological stories that were told, but didn't quite sense the relevance. I was often irritated and bored by listening to them, especially when going to the temple. This was all due to the storyteller leaving out the hidden meaning and essence of the stories. Instead they were told in a linear, simplistic, manner with disregard towards exposing the significance, intent, and meaning of the tall tales.

Dr. Devdutt Pattanaik explains this phenomona and then uncovers some of the lost and hidden relevance to the present.
