“Absent Mother God of the West: A Kali Lover's Journey into Christianity and Judaism”
A presentation by Professor Neela Saxena
Saxena’s book, Absent Mother God of the West: A Kali Lover's Journey into Christianity and Judaism, discusses the missing Divine Feminine in Christianity and Judaism and chronicles the personal quest of an Indian woman who grew up with Kali. Written from a Hindu/Buddhist Tantric perspective, and as a travelogue, the book describes its author's encounters with the Black Madonna in Europe and Shekhinah in Jewish mysticism. It is also a scholarly account of how the Mother God was erased from the western consciousness leading to a spiritually patriarchal monotheism.
