1 Wendell Charles Beane
Myth, Cult and Symbols in Sakta Hinduism: A Study of the Indian Mother Goddess
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121510406 / 9788121510400; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 
Significantly this book shows, by using a triangulation of methods (historical, phenomenological, and structural), what it is to live in a universe of meaning centered by the idea that the Ultimate Reality is grounded in a Female Principle. It provides a framework for uniting Hindu goddess-worship in all its sacred manifestations. The work uses the name Durga-Kali (via Mircea Eliade) as a vital focus for linking together tribal, popular (bhakti) and Brahmanic (Tantric) traditions. The author's approach also allows for the integration of the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of human life into a whole,-indeed- a unique type of balance. Though many suquent highly specialized studies have enlarged upon aspects of its basic theme, this is the work that by and large launched a host of recent studies in the West aimed at helping those outside of the world of Sakta Hinduism to appreciate the wonder of its mythic cosmologies, cultic practices and symbolic expressions.
