The Lalita Cult
The Lalita Cult
Description

About the Book

The Lalita Cult has figured and still figures prominently among the countless cults of ancient India.

Lalita is looked upon by the Hindus as a divine manifestation of the goddess Durga. The cult of Lalita is intimately associated with the Sakti cult or the worship of the Divine as Energy in the feminine form.

The present book studies the cult of Lalita from a historical point of view. Through this study is mainly based on the Lalitopakhyana section of the Brahmanda Purana, an endeavour is made to review other phases of the Sakti cult and its place in the Vedic literature, and particularly to examine its philosophical basis.

The study also aims to remove certain misconceptions and improved theories which have obscured the true import and value of the Sakti cult.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
