Title: The Living Goddess
Author: Isabella Tree
ISBN: 9780143422549
Size: 130 x 200 mm
Pages: 367
Description:

To Nepalis the Living Goddess is the embodiment of Devi. Legends swirl abut her. But even today the facts remain shrouded in secrecy and closely guarded by the Living Goddess's priests and caretakers. Why are Buddhists girsl worshipped by Hindu monarchs? Are the initiation rituals as macabre as they are rumoured to be? And what happens to Living Goddesses once they attain puberty?

Using myth, religion, history and her unprecendented access to the priests, caretakers and former Living Goddesses, Isabella Tree takes us deep into this hidden world. Through it she draws a vivid portrait of the girl-goddess, the beliefs and practices of traditional Nepal, and the uneasy journey it now makes towards modernity. Deeply felt and written over many years of travel and research, The Living Goddess is a profound, compelling and extremely moving book.
