Listed as Part 1, however, no other parts were published. Scholarly work on the history, ritual practices, and worship of the great goddess Kamakhya (oftentimes referred to as Mahamaya), one of whose main symbols is the female sex organ (yoni). There is also an extensive treatment of the rites and myths of Durga. Includes a lengthy introduction discussing the various manuscripts of the Kalika Purana, plus the different aspects of right hand worship and left handed Tantric practices (vama marg), and a breakdown of the ritual process. This excellent work is rarely offered for sale. This is only the second copy I have come across (first in hardcover) in the last 15 years.
