Most major religions--Christianity, Judaism, Islam--do not acknowledge the feminine power of God. Nevertheless, this 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, ever-loving, 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 worshipped there--here festivals, her daily rituals. You get an insight into mystics who attained God by worshipping Kali, and read about the Godman Sri Ramakrishna, who lived and worshipped there--her festivals, her daily rituals. You get an insight into mystics who attained God by worshipping Kali, and read about the Godman Sri Ramakrishna, who lived and worshipped the live image of Kali at the Dakshineswar Kali Temple. This is a living story, and one of inspiration.

Review: Kali: The Black Goddess of Dakshineswar

User Review  - Henrik - Goodreads

Not well-written, I expected it to be more about Kali herself, not so much about the dimensions of a room in her temple, so I was quite disappointed. Informative if you want a detailed description of how she is worshipped and by whom, I guess. Read full review

A great read. I had read this as I then later attended a Kali Mandir in Laguna Beach, which in itself was a wonderful experience. Read full review
