Description
This is a book that is meant to be read with full concentration and at the same time can be thoroughly enjoyed. Dr. Pattanaik takes mythology out of its comfort zone and spins a whole new way of looking at the world, balancing between humanity and nature.

7 Secrets of the Goddess in its entirety and singularly is a book that breaks barriers of gender, identity, male or female domination and does so beautifully through mythology and its importance in our lives. The book is innovative, it makes you think and not just about Hindu mythology, and above all, what struck me most unique is that it does not preach.

Devdutts writing is easy, simple to understand and not pedantic at all. At no point, as a reader you would want to let go of the book. A must read for those who want to know more about Indian mythology and also for those who are just discovering it.

A wholesome perspective on Goddesses

The third in the series of 7 secrets – of Vishnu, Siva and now the Goddess, the author takes us through the mythological and historical evidence that suggests how the society had turned itself from matriarchy to patriarchy.

Perhaps it’s the keen eye to detail and the ardous task of seeking our definitive evidences which make Devdutt Pattanaik the man he is, as he revels in his unraveling the myths and making meaning out of them.

The structure of the book and the layout makes it easy for the...

Oh! My Goddess

Such a scholarly account of major Indian goddesses. The book deals with the evolution and present day significance of the Devi. One must read it to feel proud of the vividness of our Indian culture. You may try this book to enhance your knowledge over the age old question 'why do we worship her'. The account on Devi Kali was one of my favorite. The most beautiful part of the book is that you can read it repeatedly.

Educative book in an illustrious way.

I have read "Shikhandi and the other tales they don't tell you' by Devdutt Pattanaik, and I fell in love with it. So, I decided to buy this one. It beautifully educates and illustrates the goddesses whom we had worshipped from our childhood as our mothers and sisters. A great tribute to the goddess of womanhood. ;-)

7 secrets of Goddess

7 secrets of Goddess is a book written by Devdutt Pattanaik that tries exploring the gender portrayal in Indian mythology. As the title indicates, he uses the myths about Goddess in doing it. First thing that meets the eye is that the book is loaded with pictures- photographs of idols, copies of old paintings and calendar art. The pictures asserts the points that Pattanaik tries to ascertain in his psychological evaluation of the myths of Goddess in Indian mythology. The author, as per me has...

A delight for mythology lovers..

This is my first experience of Devdutt Pattanaik's books and I must say that his love and intense research for all things associated with mythology is superb.

There are 7 chapters dedicated to the various goddesses of Hindu mythology from Gaia to Vitthai. Devdutt has talked about various aspects which have influenced the people's belief on the various goddesses including religion, myths and the likes. The illustrations on the left hand side pages are beautifully done.

The book has a prett...
