‘Devi’s constant presence
motivated the book. She is the one who made me write it. She is the one
who will make you read it or ignore it. 
Ya Devi sarvagrantheshu . Nothing more remains to be said.’

Who is Devi? What are her mantras? What are her stories? What are her
rituals? The roots of
Devi worship are deeply embedded in Indian society. Archaeological
excavations, going back a few
thousand years, show traces of  Devi
worship. Devi’s stories feature in the Puranas and Devi Gita
(part of Devi Bhagavata Purana), which is a beautiful amalgamation of
Vedanta and tantra.

Directed at young readers,  Devi for
Millennials  demystifies Devi’s
mantras, tantra, yantras and worship, often perceived to be esoteric. It
narrates the stories of Devi and describes in a simple manner the Shakti
Peethas and their significance. It also includes translations of verses both
familiar and obscure across a wide spectrum of texts, one of them being the
Devi Gita.

Remaining close and faithful to original Sanskrit texts and without any
distortion or interpretation,
it is a primer, an introduction to worshipping Devi, who is always with us.
