This beautiful book takes us to India today and shows us a Goddess who flourishes in temples, festivals, and in the hearts of millions. Johnsen penetrates the heart of the tradition to reveal that it offers not only an honouring of fertility and feminine values, but an amazing revelation of the limitless potentials of human consciousness.
