Over the last 1,500 years, the ancient, world-wide religion of the Great Mother has been extinguished everywhere. Everywhere, that is, except India, the one place on earth where the tradition of the Mother of the Universe is still celebrated today on a massive scale as it has been for thousands of years. Linda Johnsen takes us to India today and shows us a Goddess who triumphantly flourishes in powerful temples, ecstatic festivals, and in the hearts of millions of devotees. Through wonderful stories and her own learnings, Linda penetrates the heart of the tradition to reveal that the Goddess belief offers not only an honoring of fertility and feminine values, but an amazing revelation of the limitless potentials of human consciousness. This book introduces readers to the vast wealth of India's Goddess literature, extraordinary mystical text in which the Goddess herself reveals who she is, why she created us, and how we can find our way back to her lap.
