Oh Terrifying Mother is an anthropological exploration of a South Indian ritual in which male actors become possessed by the fierce goddess Bhagvati as a divine offering. By providing an on-the-ground look at the many meanings of Kali to those who worship her, this book fills an important niche in the burgeoning literature on Hindu goddesses.

Customer Rating: Summary: Do not buy this book. Comment: Completely inaccurate. The author does not understand Hinduism and nor does she understand the worship of the Goddess. Customer Rating: Summary: Very nice book Comment: This book is very nice. It talks about the problems that mothers have in their life. Kinds, Husbend and many other problems mother has. A very intresting book. I strongly recommend it!
