Publisher's Summary

She is the Mother Goddess, Mahamaya - the enchantress, the supreme consciousness, the pure source from which all creation emerges and to whom all must eventually return. As Usas, the enchanting goddess of the dawn, she is loved passionately and hated fiercely, leading to a horrific tragedy. As Durga, the invincible warrior, she defeats the savage Mahishasura, whom none of the male gods could vanquish. As Kali, the fearsome dark goddess, she delights in chaos. Yet she is also Shakti, beloved of all, who, when united with Shiva, restores balance to the universe.

In this captivating narrative, explore the contrasting facets of the sacred feminine; experience her awesome power, forged on the flames of love and hate; and watch her teach the male-dominated pantheon a lesson in compassion. Witty, engaging and thought-provoking, Shakti: The Feminine Divine will force listeners to re-evaluate everything they know about the gods and goddesses and inspire all to embrace the Shakti within.

My experience

It was slow to start and I actually paused it and didn't listen to it for a few weeks. But felt called to listen more and I was pulled right it. It was so good and I feel myself changed by it.

a painful reminder of a woman's strength

I love the disclaimer at the begining of this book. I agree that no one can be sure of what really happened, but i love the fact that Chandramouli did not disguise the acts of goods and goddeses to make then out to be noble. It almost feels human and it does make sense, because humans did learn from the celestials. i truely hope then every woman realises the Shakti in her and finds her Shiva
