The Mother Goddess Kamakhya

Late Dr. B. Shastri


Kamakhya temple at Guwahati is one of the important centres of pilgrimage for the Hindus. Pilgrims from all over the country, and even from neighbouring Nepal, visit the temple on auspicious days, especially during Navaratra and on other auspicious occasions related with the worship of Goddess. This temple is also considered by the followers of the Shakti cult as one of the most important seats of the cult. ISHANI had approached late Biswanarayan Shastri, an eminent Sanskrit scholar of Assam, to write about the temple, which he kindly did. It could not be published during his lifetime due to resource crunch faced by ISHANI. We have, however, preserved it carefully and are glad to publish it in this issue of ISHANI. We also offer our
humble tribute to his memory on this occasion.
