Kali: The Black Goddess of Dakshineswar

By: Elizabeth U. Harding

$22.95

Most major religions- Christianity, Judaism, Islam- do not acknowledge the feminine power of God. Nevertheless, this passionate and mysterious feminine power of God strikes a special chord in most people’s hearts. The concept of the Mother Goddess in the West- the meek, everloving, patiently suffering female- 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, and this book tells you all about the temple and how Kali is worshiped there- her festivals, her daily rituals. You get an insight into mystics who attained God by worshiping Kali, and read about the Godman Sri Ramakrishna, who lived and worshiped the live image of Kali at the Dakshineswar Kali Temple. This is a living story, and one of inspiration.
