This book examines the life of Anandamayi Ma, one of the most renowned Hindu holy women of modern times. Lisa Hallstrom paints a vivid portrait of this extraordinary woman, her ideas, and her continuing influence. In the process, the author sheds new light on important themes of Hindureligious life, including the centrality of the guru, the influence of living saints, and the apparent paradox of the worship of the divine feminine and the status of Hindu women.
Lisa Lassell Hallstrom is an Assistant Professor of Religion at Mount Holyoke College.
