Description

Preface

Sakti manifests in various forms to protect the good and destroy evil. She is benevolent as well as belligerent in the forms of Durga.

The Durga Saptasati glorifies her as a composite of Maha Lakshmi, Maha Sarasvati and Maha Kali. This concept is confirmed in the Durga Puja performed in Bengal and other places of this country.

This book mainly deals with her supreme valour and exploits. One article points out how the divine mother, though an integral entity, breaks up into Kali, Parvati and Ambika, as exigencies demand.

She is the supreme power and the dynamic aspect of Brahman. This Upanishadic eulogy of the goddess is highlighted in two articles.

The 18 verses of Durga Chandrakalastuti, with meaning, are given in an article, the author of which points out that in times of distress it brings about miraculous relief. These verses condense the essence of Devi Mahatmyam and will be found useful by many for daily recitation.

That the Divine Mother, though tender and benevolent, surely puts her foot down on injustice and tyranny is shown in another article.

Kali worship, as a form of Durga worship, is practiced in India from ancient times and is widely prevalent in Bengal even today. How the Vedas and the Puranas sing her glory is the highlight of another article. That she is the repository of all unmanifested worlds forms the theme of another write-up on the subject of Kali in Ratri Sukta.

Kali is that aspect of Adi Sakti which is associated with destruction. However, being inseparable from Siva, she is auspicious. This is elaborately explained in the article on Kali Tattva.

Kali is portrayed in various forms. She is the consort of Siva, but she is often represented as an independent goddess. Though mainly belonging to the Hindu pantheon, she has been incorporated in some ways into the Buddhist and Jain systems. All these facets and other aspects in literature, together with icons of Kali, are featured in another article.

There are legends galore about the prowess of the goddess and she is worshipped in unique temples. This book throws light on these aspects as well.

I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
