This poetry collection is a modern mystical journey; a conjuration of an opalescent world of tantric ritual and myth. Weaving together essays and sublime, haunting, poetic reflections, Nisha Ramaya unfolds for the reader the world of the Mahavidyas, a group of tantric goddesses who embody different aspects of the divine feminine. The poems are fierce meditations on diasporic identity, language, resistance, and the many shades of feeling from grief to bliss. A beautiful work of well-chosen words for explorations of dream, devotion and loss.
