By means of exploring ten critical areas of life, represented by the ten Mahavidyas (ten aspects of the Divine, beautifully represented by goddesses from the tantric tradition), Kavitha gives us valuable insights as to how we can harness the power of our awareness as we explore, face, and overcome various challenges that come before us (represented by the shadow side of each Mahavidya).
Kavitha writes in a creative, clear, and engaging style as she provides a plethora of wisdom in a delightful manner. She helps us accelerate our spiritual, mental, and emotional growth and enjoy life more fully in the process.
Knowing the negatives that are weighing us down is the key to addressing and resolving them. In her new book ‘Shakti Rising’, Kavitha M. Chinnaiyan, MD captures the rich essence of Mahavidyas, the divine feminine, to clearly identify the shadows that hold us down, and brilliantly delivers approaches to target them and turn those shadows into the light of Mahavidyas.
Shakti Rising invokes soul search to find one’s true ‘Self’. Once that is accomplished, author Kavitha talks about different issues that weigh us down in life, the shadows of Mahavidyas. Kavitha explains the shadow and light of all ten Mahavidyas. She charts the journey towards turning around shadows(the negatives that weigh us down) to harness the light(energy) of the each Mahavidya, leading us to the direct path to liberation. In the direct path, Kavitha states – “we go directly to the source of our being”.
Each shadow(negative) is explained with real life situations which we all can relate to. Enriching the narration with her own personal experiences, Kavitha demonstrates how she turned them around. She details specific exercises to begin the journey to resolution of the issues. Exercises are clearly illustrated and are simple enough to incorporate in busy day schedule.
Through Shakti Rising Kavitha brings the wealth of deep knowledge from the Yoga Shastra, Kundalini Vidya and Tantras into applicable terms that can be put to immediate use. Fairly new on the spiritual path, I was able to relate with the Mahavidyas whose shadow have been weighing me down and begin the exercises for resolving them.
With her up lifting writing style and a delivery resonating passion, Kavitha lights up the path to self resolution and spirituality. I highly recommend Shakti Rising as an essential guide to both new and not so new to the spiritual path.
What inspires me further is to know that Kavitha is not only a superb scholar on this subject, but that she is actually LIVING her own version of the mythology. To be sharing these techniques and principles for self-realization is a gift to spiritual seekers from all walks of life. The scales are finally being balanced as we properly pay homage to the Divine Feminine within our Self, and as we let Her fertile ecstasy come to the surface for full expression.
Many thanks, Kavitha, for all the personal and professional work you put into this cutting-edge book.
