Arjuna and the Hunter , by the sixth-century poet Bharavi, portrays Arjuna's travels to the Himalayas, where Shiva tests the hero's courage in combat and bestows upon him an invincible weapon. This is a masterful contemplation of ethical conduct, ascetic discipline, and religious devotion--enduring themes in Indian literature.
