Description

Tantra is a major development in the evolution of Indian spiritual thought in as much as it represents a determined attempt at reconciling the apparent points of conflict among dthe different schools of philosophy that came up after the age of Epics. Tantra seeks to synthesize the monism of the Advaita with the dualism of the Samkhya, enrich jnana with the rasa of Bhakti, join Nature to her Lord in the person of the human individual, harmonise the claims of the Spirit with the rights of Matter.

The Kularnava an an important text in one of the traditions of Tantra with a pronouncedly practical bent of thoguht. It calls upon man to wake up to the rare privilege that has been given to him, e.g. human birth in which the being conscious of himself and is offered a choice: a choice between stagnation and rapid progression towards his Godhead.
