Description

The Dakshineswar Temple in India is devoted to the worship of Ma Kali, and this book tells you all about the temple and how Kali is worshipped there - her festivals, her daily rituals.

Most major religions - Christianity, Judaism, Islam - do not acknowledge the feminine power of God. Nevertheless, this mysterious feminine power of God strikes a special chord in most people's hearts. The concept of the Mother Goddess in the West - the meek, ever-loving, patiently suffering female - is very different than the image of Kali in the Hindu Pantheon.

The Dakshineswar Temple in India is devoted to the worship of Ma Kali. On reading this book, you get an insight into mystics who attained God by worshipping Kali. This is a living story, and one of inspiration.

COMMENTS:

This book will help clear the misunderstanding about the Hindu Goddess Kali. The author's rational and devotional approach makes her work authentic and inspiring.

A fascinating pilgrimage to one of the world's most active temples of the great Goddess. Required reading for all of those interested in Goddess traditions.

Never in print have I seen Her brought to life with such passion and truth.
