    Description
    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 readers to re-evaluate everything they know about the gods and goddesses and inspire all to embrace the Shakti within.

    Her best work yet

    Wow!!! The Author is at her creative best and has used her imagination to produce a page turner from a complex subject such as Shakti. She brings to life Goddess Shakti, with an absolutely new perception. Every sentence is thought provoking, yet she is able to maintain a rapid pace. There are gems of knowledge embedded throughout the book. For instance she has the Goddess stating "I want them to care enough about the things worth learning, to devote more of themselves unearthing it". That pro...

    Delightful

    "Shakti - The Divine Feminine" by Anuja Chandramouli is the masterpiece of the mythological saga on the female goddess. I would say it is a literary treasure, which proves Anuja's prowess as the wordsmith.

    "Shakti" brings completely different paradigm of Hindu mythology to readers. In India, Mother Goddess (we may call her Jagdamba, Amba, Aadhya-Shakti, Prakriti) is worshiped as the divine force that fuels the world. But in general, women were never considered equal to men. Anuja has taken t...

    A fitting tribute to our beloved Goddess !

    Shakti is a gripping tale. Kali and Vritra are my favourite characters. My favourite segments are Durga’s onslaught on Mahisha, Kali’s attack on Indra and the final reunion of Shakti with Shiva. I liked the little story about Ganesha’s origin. Anuja’s mastery in story telling comes to the fore in Shakti and keeps the reader hooked till the end. The language quality is impeccable. Shakti has humongous relevance to today’s modern world and reiterates the compulsory need for Women Empowerment in...

    Shakti the divine feminine - WOWWWW

    Shakti the mother goddess is unravelled to us in all her avatars. The timid beginning of the goddess starts off slowly but then picks up a furious pace and ends leaving this reader craving for more of the divine goddess who rules us all. This is a multilayered story transcending regular storytelling and the author anuja chandramouli combines fact and fiction with aplomb. Highlights of the book will always be the contemporary writing style of the author and the impact most of the stories leave...
