The Path of the Mother by Savitri L. Bess Published by Ballantine Books, a division of Random House

The Path of the Mother

A six-stage journey to union with the Great Mother, framed by Savitri Bess's own years of devotion to one of the Universal Mother's most famous, present-day incarnations--the Hindu mystic Ammachi. Interweaving Hindu myths with Savitri's own quest and those of others, she reveals this journey as an integration of spiritual practices into a life grounded in love for all humanity and nature.

Practical exercises, meditations, yoga, and prayers will help both novice and veteran seekers to rediscover their innocence, balance their inner masculine and feminine energies, resolve their buired wounds, desires, and talents, and open their hearts to the nurturing guidanceof the Mother-God within us all.
