Description

A voluminous, intelligible and illuminating work in English on the various schools of Saiva and Sakta Tantras.

Tantra, perhaps more than any other, is the least understood and often erroneously practiced discipline. Rarely has there been an authentic and comprehensive study of the subject, especially in English. This book is an attempt to fulfil this standing need.

The volume is divided into two parts. Part one consist of four chapters dealing with the basic concepts of the Philosophy of Tantras. Part two comprises five chapters - each chapter analyses the practical side of the Tantras. This part may be called Tantras in Practice.

Tantras take cognizance of the fact that spirit of the age changes because of inexorable law of motion and social dynamics, that is why considering the existing conditions of the present age, something has been hinted at the Fourth Chapter of Part two called Tantras: Spirit of the Age.

In Chapter V of Part two, two lengthy dissertations on different phases of Yoga and six bodily centers (Sat Cakras) and piercing through Cakras have been appended. Readers interested in Yoga, Kundalini Sakti, arousing of Kundalini might draw some ideas and secrets of practicing them.
