Hindu Goddesses is a valuable source book and reference work for students and scholars of Hindu goddesses and of Hinduism in general. In many ways, this book is as much a study of the Hindu tradition itself as it is a study of one aspect of theat tradition. No other living religious tradition has displayed such an ancient, continuous, and diverse history of goddess worship.
The concept of the Mother Goddess in the West is very different than the image of Kali in the Hindu pantheon. The Dakshineswar Temple in India is devoted to the worship of Ma Kali. You get an insight into mystics who attained God by worshipping Kali, and read about the Godman Sri Ramakrisbna, who lived and worshipped the live image of Kali at the Dakshineswar Kali Temple. This is a living story, and one of inspiration.

The extraordinary collection explores twelve different Hindu Goddesses, all of whom are in some way related to Devi, the Great Goddess. The collection combines analysis of texts with intensive fieldwork, allowing the reader to see how goddesses are worshiped in everyday life. In these essays the divine feminine in Hinduism is revealed as never before-fascinating contradictory powerful.
