Discription

The cult of the mother goddess is global in character. However, in the Indian context it is highly intriguing because of the complexities involved therein. While in some cases, its origin is traced to the folk tradition of the tribals, in some other cases deliberate attempts have been made to Aryanise individual deities by creating numerous myths and legends regarding their genesis and growth. With a view to exploring the reality behind such myths and presenting the facts regarding their original nature, a U.G.C. sponsored national seminar was organized on “The Cult of the Mother Goddess: Fictions and Facts”. The present book is the outcome of the seminar. The edited version of the articles presented and discussed in the seminar is so arranged that it demonstrates a coherent depiction of the genesis and advance of the Mother Goddess Cult in India in manifold forms and features, such as Vedic, Puranic, Buddhist, Jain and folk traditions by studying them in a historical perspective.
