The Tigress and the Yogi
The Sadhana Trilogy / Volume 1eBook - 2016 | 1 ed.
War and religious strife in the lands between the Himalayas and Ganga's river threaten gods and mortals alike. Amidst this chaos, the outcaste girl Mala meets a talking tigress and an old sage who shows her yoga's power. From that moment, Mala hungers for spiritual knowledge forbidden to the lowborn. Enslaved after her parents' murder, she escapes with the Great Goddess's help and finds safety and a strange love in the ashes of the cremation grounds, where an old nemesis finds her. He tortures her lover and steals their little daughter Kirsa, and Mala seeks revenge, mastering occult powers and transforming into the bloodthirsty outlaw Angulimala. When she discovers her stolen daughter has become the playmate of the boy Siddhartha, the Sakyan prince prophesied to become a buddha, she wants Kirsa back. But ruthless Angulimala must become the loving mother Mala once was. The old yogi she met long ago will teach her yoga's path to redemption. But that path has its own dangers. Will Mala have the courage to face them?
