The word ‘mother’ is not just said with the lips, it is also said with the heart. The mother was our first link to a strange and unfamiliar world, and a constant source of tender care and compassion. No wonder that blessed word evokes such a sense of comfort and love in the heart of the listener. But where did the mother get her angelis qualities, and what is this mysterious concept known as motherhood? Is it simply a label bestowed on a woman who nurtures and raises children? Or is there more to this notion than meets the eye? Divine Motherhood is an enlightening and fascinating exploration into the multi-faceted, multi-dimensional concept of the divinity of motherhood.

Under Paramahamsa Prajnanananda’s loving direction, we quickly discover that to see the Mother in the outer world is not enough, we must also find the Mother within.
