From Goddess To Mortal: The True Life Story of A Former Royal Kumari Author:Scott Berry/Rashmila Shakya
Scott Berry is a very well-known name to me. I came across his book A
Stranger in Tibet when I was working on the life and works of Ekai
Kawaguchi in Tokyo in 1997-1998. I was very impressed by his narrative
style and his ability to combine humanism with the wisdom of culture.
Berry has precisely done that in this book From Goddess to Mortal. In this
book, he has very effectively presented the personal narrative of an ex-Kumari.
Reading this book is like traveling into the realms of very loving,
genuine and thrilling experience of a living goddess. This book is a bridge
that links the world of innocence with the world of experience. It also
shows a unique and rare combination of innocence and power as reflected
through the narratives of Rashmila Shakya as told to Scott Berry.
Prof. Abhi Subedi is a playwright and researcher. He is the author of
