Worship of God in the Form of Mother Kali
- PAL video tape
This video shows an authentic Kali worship by a priest from the Dakshineswar Kali Temple, in Calcutta, India. It includes rare footage starting in Calcutta and moving to California. We see extraordinary scenes of India, as well as devotional offerings of music, dancing, and chanting. Ancient living rituals, including an enchanting night time mystic fire ceremony, all authentically performed by the main worshiper (pujari). We view close-up shots of the worship which show details not easily seen even by the attendees at the worship.
Through explanatory narration, viewers gain a fresh awareness of deeper meanings in rituals and spiritual practices. These deeper meanings are found in many diverse religions and cultures throughout the world. A framework is set which facilitates harmonious empathy between the followers of different religious paths.
