Four Goddesses
Four Goddesses

In part 1 of this series of Sādhaka on 4 Expressions of the Divine Feminine, Laura Amazzone explores the goddess Sarasvati. She begins by discussing why all four goddesses she teaches about in this series can be seen as different expressions of śakti, the creative power that animates all of existence. All the gods and goddesses hold śakti. The goddesses, as Laura explores them, are expressions of the Absolute Consciousness.
