The Black Goddess of Dakshineswar
Elizabeth U. Harding
This is the best book available on Kali. Sri Ramakrishna was a devotee of the Divine Mother Kali and the particular aspect of Kali discussed in this book is the one that was worshipped by Sri Ramakrishna. The book is lovingly and sympathetically rendered by the founder of Kali Mandir in Laguna Beach; the author is a Western devotee of both Sri Ramakrishna and Kali. The book gives information about the goddess herself, about the temple and her worship.
Swami Chetanananda writes: “This book will help clear the misunderstanding about the Hindu goddess Kali. The author’s rational and devotional approach makes her work authentic and inspiring.”
