From the Back Cover:

The Devi Gita, literally the Song of the Goddess, is an Eastern spiritual classic that appeared around the fifteenth century c.e. C. Mackenzie Brown provides a reader-friendly English translation of this sacred text taken from his well-regarded previous book The Devi Gita: The Song of the Goddess, A Translation, Annotation, and Commentary. Here the translation is presented uninterrupted without the scholarly annotations of the original version and in its entirety for the pleasure of all readers who wish to encounter this treasure from the world's sacred literature. Often neglected, the Devi Gita deserves to be better known for its presentations of one of the great Hindu visions of the divine conceived in feminine terms. The work depicts the universe as created, pervaded, and protected by a supremely powerful, all-knowing, and wholly compassionate divine female. It also describes the various spiritual paths leading to realization of unity with the Goddess. The author of the Devi Gita intended for the work to supplant the famous teachings of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (the Song of the Lord ) from a goddess-inspired perspective.

About the Author:

C. Mackenzie Brown is Professor and Chair of Religion at Trinity University. He is the author of The Triumph of the Goddess: The Canonical Models and Theological Visions of the Devi-Bhagavata Purana , also published by SUNY Press.
