Reciting the Goddess is the first book-length study of Nepal's goddess Svasthani and the popular Svasthanivratakatha textual tradition. Drawing on archival and ethnographic research, it examines the making of Hinduism in Nepal, a history that is largely neglected in master narratives of Hinduism on the Indian subcontinent.
