Audio Book Summary

Winner of the 2017 Nautilus Gold Book Award!

The wisdom of the Mahavidyas, the ten 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.

    The insights in Shakti Rising seem to reach deep into me. Shakti Rising is a guide to a very unique way of working with the Mahavidyas (10 fierce wisdom goddesses) to surface our own limiting beliefs and patterns. I have listened to and read this book over and over as I have delved deeper into the practices and understanding of the mahavidyas and myself. The book is beautifully written and as I go through it, I often pause to reflect on the insights presented, which seem to be a map of my own inner world. Highly recommend this audiobook!

    Shakti Rising is a book to read over and over and over. I learn so much about myself through Kavitha's teachings and the Maha Vidyas are powerful mirrors. The combination of practices and wisdom from Kavitha is beautiful and illuminating. I have been reading this book for the past year and each time I read it I get new insights and guidance. Thank you Kavithaji.
