In a small medieval palace on Kathmandu's Durbar Square lives Nepal's famous Living Goddess - a child as young as three who is chosen from a caste of Buddhist goldsmiths to watch over the country and protect its people. To Nepalis she is the embodiment of Devi (the universal goddess) and for centuries their Hindu kings have sought her blessing to legitimize their rule. The Living Goddess is a compassionate and illuminating enquiry into this reclusive Himalayan country, deeply felt, emotionally engaged and written after twelve years of travel and research.
