Description

This book is mostly based on a careful study of authentic contemporary books on magic like Mantra Mahodadhi and Mantra Maharnav. The author tries to give a historical background to the subjects.

The religious practices enshrined with beliefs and superstitions also form a part of it. Though the book has been written with special reference to Rajasthan, it covers a much larger sphere and context.
