The Lalita Cult
The Lalita Cult
Description
From the Jacket

The Lalita Cult has figured and still figures prominently among the countless cults of ancient India.

Lalita is looked upon by the Hindus as a divine manifestation of the goddess Durga. The cult of Lalita is intimately associated with the Sakti cult or the worship of the Divine as Energy in the feminine form.

The present book studies the cult of Lalita from a historical point of view. Though this study is mainly based on the Lalitopakhyana section of the Brahmanda Purana, an endeavour is made to review other phases of the Sakti cult and its place in the Vedic literature, and particularly to examine its philosophical basis.

The study also aims to remove certain misconceptions and improved theories which have obscured the true import and value of the Sakti cult.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
