Archana Shankar (Author) Sondeep Shankar (Author)
Synopsis Devi is one of the most complex and powerful Hindu goddesses with names, like her many faces, ranging from Parvati to Gauri and Kali. Embodying paradox and ambivalence, she is sensual yet detached, gentle yet heroic, beautiful but terrifying. The role model for Hindu women, she personifies the qualities of both heroism and eroticism, customarily found in women in Sanskrit literature. But while she is the overflowing mother. She is also a malevolent force whose demands must be met to appease her. She is also superior to any god for only she can conquer many demons. This book is second in a series of coffee-table books on Hindu gods and goddesses.
