Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In the Hindu tradition, God has both male and female characteristics. This fine investigation presents six contemporary women saints of India who are considered to be the exemplification of the feminine aspect of the divine, living incarnations of the ``Divina Mother'' or ``the Goddess.'' Johnsen, a longtime student of religion and spirituality, not only interviewed these women but also lived and walked among them in the United States and in India. The result of her studies is an engrossing and charming book that illustrates the great strength of character and spiritual wisdom these women possess. (A list is provided so that one can get in touch with their centers in this country.) Useful to informed lay readers and scholars generally, this book is highly recommended for religion collections in both public and academic libraries.-Marilyn E. Schafer, Canadian Memorial Chiropractic Coll., Toronto
