Book Description

Goddess images are omnipresent within the cultural fabric of India, yet most Indians are unaware of uplifting meanings these images convey. In the book, Images of Indian Goddesses, Dr. Madhu Bazaz Wangu explains the emergence of Indian goddesses within the changing social, political and cultural environment from the prehistoric to the present times and explains their metaphysical meanings.

Why are Hindu Goddesses paradoxical in nature? Why are they portrayed as erotic and maternal simultaneously? Why do they have multiple arms? Why do some of them have their own vehicle (Vahana) and some do not? Why are such images portrayed on the popular calendar posters? The book answers such questions and helps the reader understand their meanings.
