Rhythms of Life

Enacting the World with the Goddesses of Orissa

Frederique Apffel-Marglin

The essays focus on two sets of rituals; those in and around the temple of Jagannath in Puri mostly through the lens of the rituals of the Devadasis and the other, the festival of Raja Parba carried out at Bali Haracandi some 20 km south of Puri, celebrating the menses of the earth, the sea, the goddess and women.
