The Veiling Brilliance
by Devadatta Kali

CLICK HERE TO ORDER from Red Wheel/Weiser. $18.95

The Veiling Brilliance tells the tale of three men– a king, a merchant, and a seer– but at its core is a revelation about the central tenets of goddess worship within an ancient religion. A humiliated king, Suratha, and a down-on-his-luck merchant, Samadhi, find themselves at the ashram of the seer Medhas. There, they receive the support and teaching they need to return successfully to the world at large, but each in a manner based on his own individual need. This fascinating novel of attainment and redemption allows readers a rare glimpse into the world of traditional Hindu goddess worship, not from a pedantic, evangelical, or proselytizing approach, but through the gentle, almost incidental teaching form f fiction. Follow the three main characters as they bond with each other and grow together in a quest for enlightenment which will allow the two students to emerge back into the world, healed and ready for the vicissitudes of secular life.

Based on the ancient Hindu scripture, the Devimahatmya, The Veiling Brilliance includes wisdom found in many other Hindu classics such as the Rigveda Samhita, the Upanishads, the Bhagavadgita, the Yogasutra of Patanjali, and traditional tantric works. In fact, the title refers directly to that essence of Shakti, and Hindu worship of the goddess– although hidden or veiled from the eyes of those caught up in everyday life, the brilliance of her wisdom cannot be kept from those who seek it out.

The Yogasutra of Patanjali is described as an owner’s manual for the human mind and how the mind can be used in the quest for Truth and The Managing Mind presents this most important text on Yoga and meditation in clear and straightforward English.

Devadatta Kali’s commentary endeavors to draw out the meaning of Patanjali’s text in a coherent and modern form that will serve the real life needs of the spiritual practitioner. He has also includes the original Sanskrit text for those who seek a more in-depth understanding of the hidden dimension of the Yogasutra, giving a word-by-word analysis with multiple possibilities for the meaning of the text. In addition, Devadatta Kali provides his own original interpretations of the meaning of several of the sutras. He sheds new light on their classical interpretation, which have often missed the point by overlooking the language of metaphor.

Devadatta Kali (David Nelson) began his long association with Hinduism in 1966 through the Vedanta Society of Southern California.

The Devimahatmya and Its Meaning
A new translation, with commentary, of the sacred Hindu scripture and its eight Angas
Devadatta Kali

About 16 centuries ago, an unknown Indian author or authors gathered together the diverse threads of already ancient traditions and wove them into a verbal tapestry that today is still the central text for worshippers of the Hindu Devi, the Divine Mother. This spiritual classic, the Devimahatmya, addresses the perennial questions of the nature of the universe, humankind, and divinity. How are they related, how do we live in a world torn between good and evil, and how do we find lasting satisfaction and inner peace?

These questions and their answers form the substance of the Devimahatmya. Its narrative of a dispossessed king, a merchant betrayed by the family he loves, and a seer whose teaching leads beyond existential suffering sets the stage for a trilogy of myths concerning the all-powerful Divine Mother, Durga, and the fierce battles she wages against throngs of demonic foes. In these allegories, her adversaries represent our all-too-human impulses toward power, possessions, and pleasure. The battlefields symbolize the field of human consciousness on which our lives' dramas play out in joy and sorrow, in wisdom and folly.

The Devimahatmya speaks to us across the ages of the experiences and beliefs of our ancient ancestors. We sense their enchantment at nature's bounty and their terror before its destructive fury, their recognition of the good and evil in the human heart, and their understanding that everything in our experience is the expression of a greater reality, personified as the Divine Mother.
