Did you find Yaksha interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a beautiful, lovely illustration of the Friendly Yaksha and send it to this website. Would you like to delve deeper into Hindu and Indian myth? Watch all these stories of Demons, heros and war in the 3D animation Ramayana (1997). The delightful cartoon Dashavatar (2008) tells the stories of the 10 incarnations of Vishnu who overcomes Demons and beasts to save the world. The best source for Hindu mythology is of course the books themselves.
