THE BOOK OF DURGA (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.185

Durga is unattainable, unfathomable, the Invincible One. Myths associated with her origin tell us that she is Shakti the female manifestation of cosmic energy-- created by the fusion of the fierce energies of all the male gods and stronger than their combined strength. She is the scourge of demons, as she is protectress of the realms of gods and humans. Her anger is terrifying, her lust for victory in war overwhelming; on the battlefield she is merciless, even savage. Yet, she may just as easily transform into the the consort of Shvia, daughter of the mountains, sister of the gods, or other of her four children and of all mankind.
