The Dakshineswar Temple in India is devoted to the worship of Ma Kali, and this book tells you all about the temple and how Kali is worshipped there-here festivals, her daily rituals. You get an insight into mystics who attained God by worshipping Kali, and read about the Godman Sri Ramakrishna, who lived and worshipped there--her festivals, her daily rituals.

This is a living story, and one of
