Description

This extraordinary collection explores twelve different Hindu Goddesses, all of whom are in some way related to Devi, the Great Goddess. This collection combines analysis of texts with intensive fieldwork, allowing the reader to see how goddesses are worshiped in everyday life. In these essays, the divine feminine in Hinduism is revealed as never before - fascinating, contradictory, powerful.

The volume brings together in a useful way both older and very current research on goddesses from different regional traditions. This accomplishment helps to move western scholarship on Indian goddesses away from the essentializing and overgeneralizing that has been characteristic of many analyses so far.
