The book Seeking Mah?dev?: Constructing the Identities of the Hindu Great
Goddess, edited by Tracy Pintchman, contains ten essays dealing with the different ways Hindus construe the distinct image of Mah?dev?. I will compare two of those essays here and determine their approach and what they add to the study of Goddess identity in Hinduism. The two essays are Usha Menon's ?Mah?dev? as Mother: The Oriya Vision of Reality? and Elaine Craddock's ?Reconstructing the Split Goddess as ?akti in a Tamil Village.? A better understanding of goddesses and Goddess worship can be reached by closely studying these essays. They provide two different modes and theories on who the Goddess is and what she means to her various devotees.
