This article by Usha Chatterji provides an excellent overall account of the cult of the Goddess, or the Great Goddess. The term Shakti literally means “power”; thus, according to Chatterji, the cult of the Goddess focuses on the image of God as feminine, or God as a productive and nourishing force. The various forms of the Great Goddess, or individual goddesses are also discussed in this article. The reader is also provided with a clear account of the historical development of the Great Goddess and the role She plays in Hindu worship.
