Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2017 Nautilus Gold Book Award!

The wisdom of the Mahavidyas, the 10 wisdom goddesses who represent the interconnected darkness and light within all of us, has been steeped in esoteric and mystical descriptions that made them seem irrelevant to ordinary life. But with this book, written by a respected cardiologist who found herself on a spiritual search for the highest truth, you're invited to explore this ancient knowledge and learn how it can be applied to daily struggles and triumphs-and how it can help you find unreserved self-love and acceptance.

Pulling from Eastern traditions including tantra and yoga, and focusing on the feminine principle of divine energy also known as Shakti, this book bridges the divide between dualistic concepts and non-dual philosophy. By exploring the symbolism of the Mahavidyas (Kali, Tara, Tripurasundari, Bhuvaneshwari, Tripura Bhairavi, Chinnamasta, Dhumavati, Baglamukhi, Matangi, and Kamalatmika) - each with a veiled face representing a destructive quality that perpetuates ignorance and suffering, and a true face representing the wisdom that stimulates profound transformation and liberation - you'll learn to embrace and incorporate every aspect of who you are.

Bought the hard copy

I listened to the sample and liked the reader at first, but after a while I realized she never really seemed to be coming from a genuine place. Her voice became sickly sweet. Kept trying because I loved the book, but eventually gave up and bought the hard copy. It's worth it.

Roadmap to grace

Methodical steps to live in the world and realize our true nature. Though the audio was cutting out some words, it caused me to pay closer attention and rewind when necessary. Ability to mark specific clips was very useful.

Great balance of myth and pointers, Tantra and Advaita

Great compile by Kavitha with an insightful foreword from Greg Goode. Breathes fresh air into practice. Felt like listening to Christopher Di Wallis’ Radiant Sutras on the distaff side of Tantra.
