Devi: The Great Goddess

Devi in Hinduism refers to the mother Goddess. She has many guises and a range of different manifestations. She is worshipped in many forms like Durga, Kali, Parvathi, Bhairavi etc. In Devīmāhātmya the origin of the goddess is described.

Devi: The Great Goddess is a website that offers additional information on the contemporary and historical worship of Devi. This web site has been developed in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name conducted at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery from March 29, 1999 through September 6, 1999. The web site looks at the six aspects of the Indian goddess Devi. The contents are presented in a very artistic manner and is a pleasure to read. It would appeal to both westerners and to Indians alike.
