Grace and Mercy In Her Wild Hair
  Selected Poems to the Mother Goddess


by Ramprasad Sen
Translated by Leonard Nathan and Clinton Seely

Kali is the great Hindu godess of creation and destruction. She is always popular, but seldom deeply understood in the West.

Coming to us from an India one hundred years in the past, these poems from Ramprasad Sen express the vitality, earthy sensuality and ferocity of the Shakta-sect of Kali worship. The poems in this book were called heretical by the Indian brahmins when they were first written. Today they are considered classical by scholars and lovers of the lush Indian spiritual tradition.
