In Praise of Kali details the goddess Kali, and her culture of devotion in West Bengal and South Asia. Different from most contemporary books about this Dark Goddess, this book offers a liturgy of worship—a spiritual practice, the Song of the Hundred Names of Adya Kali, that readers can use to cultivate a direct devotional relationship to Kali.
The text of this liturgy and Commentaries contain an intimate revelation of how the goddess establishes herself in her devotees’ bodies and thus intervenes, by unconditional love and acceptance, in their lives.
Here you will find instructions for building a shrine to Kali, various types of offerings to make to her, and a schedule for how to use this liturgy with a long-term commitment over the course of 108 nights.
Aditi Devi’s long term spiritual practice and immersion within living Tantric lineages in South Asia is the source of this book.
