Excerpt from The Living Goddess by Linda Johnsen

“…There are ten goddesses in the esoteric yogic tradition. Of these, the three most widely worshipped are the fierce mighty Kali, the ever-wise Tara, and the lovely, gracious Lalita.
While Saraswati, Lakshmi, Kali, and Durga are enormously popular goddesses whose images can be found from one end of India to the other, Lalita is an esoteric goddess, worshiped quietly by the Shakta yogis, by monks of the Hindu monasteries, such as those established by Shankaracharya, and by the lay initiates privately in their homes.

The arrows are our five senses and the bow with which they’re dispatched is our mind. When our senses are offered to the Goddess and our thoughts are directed to the divine, our lives becomesweet and fragrant…”
