Editorial Reviews:

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:
