This is an attempt to understand the meaning of Goddess worship in our time. Written in simple narrative style, it takes us through Shakta imagery, philosophy, beliefs, customs, history, folklore and myth. The book reaches to young and old alike, bringing together tales of Adi-Maya-Shakti, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Parvati, Kali, Durga as well as several village-Goddesses such as Kanyakumari, Vaishnav-Devi, Bahucharmata and heroines such as Anasuya, Arundhati and Savitri. Also included are tales of ancient Goddesses who were once worshipped in other parts of the world such as Isis, Ishtar, Aphrodite and Diana. Highlights include lucid explanations and a pictorial key to numerous symbols associated with Shakta customs and Tantrik rituals, a map showing important Devi temples, a bibliography for those interested in learning more and over 150 illustrations of which many are in colour. Printed Pages: 135.
