Is it a Myth or a Reality?

Mythology is an expression of truth through symbols, stories, metaphors and rituals. The truth or reality is hidden in all these. When the metaphor is understood rightly the truth is revealed. And when the metaphor is not understood rightly the truth remains as a myth. Therefore, a hidden truth is a myth and an uncovered myth is a truth. The Hindu Mythology is a rich heritage of these symbols and metaphors.
