A woman is not just a form and a figure though her form itself is significant of deep guarded secrets and the capacity to create marvels out of a seed state. The ancient seers saw in her the bridge between creation and the Creator and worshipped her thus. But she is not just a woman that we behold with the eyes of ignorance, but Force, Shakti, Wisdom, Strength, Beauty, Love, Delight that is everywhere and in all beings. This book is not just an attempt to discover and evoke her through myths and legends of India but to unravel the mysteries of the 'Eternal Feminine' with a view to discover the truth behind what a woman truly represents as seen through the awakened eyes of the mystics and the spiritual culture of India.
About the author:
The author grew up in a family with rich spiritual values surrounded with myths and legends. Subsequent to his MD in Psychiatry from the Armed Forces Medical College, Pune and his service in the Indian Air Force, his childhood fascination in myths and legends needed a sound footing than merely believing in them as part of his religious tradition. He found this deeper understanding in his spiritual journey through the Integral Yoga of Sri Aurobindo. Though he has written and spoken extensively on various subjects the myths and legends of India, especially the worship of the Divine Mother, Shakti, remains closest to his heart.
