  • By Swami Bhajanananda Saraswati.

    This booklet is a guide to learning simple Mother worship in the Hindu tradition.  Swami Bhajanananda Saraswati presents here a simplified ritualistic worship of Goddess Kali that can easily be performed regularly.  Based on ancient Tantric scriptures, the mantras and rituals contained in this puja-book come to us from the tradition of the Dakshineswar Kali temple where Sri Ramakrishna lived and worshipped the Divine Mother with an awe-inspiring intensity for over thirty years.  This book contains an overview of puja and includes the transliterated Sanskrit mantras with English translations as well as instructions for a five-item worship of Mother Kali.  This is the simplest Kali puja that is still authentic and complete for easy learning and memorization and is ideal for daily home practice.  Booklet.  36 pp. with drawings.

  • This is the famous Kali image Sri Ramakrishna worshipped in the Dakshineswar Kali Temple, Kolkata, India. Kali here is in her benign form. She is the dakshina Kali with her right foot front. By divine grace, Elizabeth Usha Harding got the rare privilege to take photos inside the inner shrine of Kali. Taking pictures in the inner sanctum is usually strictly forbidden. This photo prompted Usha to write the book "Kali, the Black Goddess of Dakshineswar," and indirectly started Kali Mandir in Laguna Beach.
