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 Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
