The Lalita Cult
The Lalita Cult
Description
From the Jacket

The Lalita Cult has figured and still figures prominently among the countless cults of ancient India.

Lalita is looked upon by the Hindus as a divine manifestation of the goddess Durga. The cult of Lalita is intimately associated with the Sakti cult or the worship of the Divine as Energy in the feminine form.

The present book studies the cult of Lalita from a historical point of view. Though this study is mainly based on the Lalitopakhyana section of the Brahmanda Purana, an endeavour is made to review other phases of the Sakti cult and its place in the Vedic literature, and particularly to examine its philosophical basis.

The study also aims to remove certain misconceptions and improved theories which have obscured the true import and value of the Sakti cult.
