Parvati's Tapasya


This monograph presents an episode of the life of the goddess as recounted by Kalidasa in his epic Kumarasambhava. The poet describes one of the greatest instruments used by ancient Indian seekers in their quest, the method of tapasya, here undertaken by Parvati herself for sake of love. Parvati is the soul of us all, human beings searching for God.
