Book Description

April 1, 2001
Annapurna is the Goddess who grants nourishment on every level. Anna meaning food and grains, and purna meaning full, complete, perfect - She is the Divine Mother who is full, complete in food and grains.

She is the Goddess who inspires us to nourish others, to give our best. We worship Her for the attainment of perfection in wisdom and renunciation. Her wisdom teaches us that spirituality is about giving. The renunciation she teaches us allows us to be in equanimity in every circumstance of life. As we are freed from attachment to selfish considerations, we experience the greatest joy.

This volume contains the thousand names of Annapurna and the famous Annapurna Stotram by Sankaracarya. Also included are a hundred and eight names and Her meditations. The text is presented in the original Samskrita and a Romanized phonetic transliteration, along with the sagacious and inspiring translation by Swami Satyananda.

About the Author

Swami Satyananda Saraswati performed the disciplines of a wandering ascetic for more than twenty years in India, chanting naked in the snow, meditating in hot springs, sitting for days at a time beside a sacred fire, walking the length and breadth of India, encountering snakes, miracle sadhus, rainmakers, healers, terrorists, palm readers, great saints and ultimately the Divine Mother.
