About the Book

Durga Kosha is intended to be a comprehensive work on the Goddess Durga: mythology relating to Durga which is found in our Agama texts and iconographic manual and the worship details and rituals contained in our kalpas and puja patalas. Durga is a popular deity in our country, and her puja is extensive as well as household worship of Durga is prevalent. An account of the culture elements in iconography and worship would therefore be welcome not only to the students on Indology but also to the general public.
