Description
From the Jacket

Srividya is discipline where abounds considerable mystery esotericism and occultism. There is among common people quite some ignorance concerning its philosophy and practice. There is also a host of doubts and uncertainties among practitioners themselves. The presence of different tradition in Srividya is a further source of confusion. The textual background to Srividya has almost become obscure and obsolete it has become more a matter of individual lineages of practices. In the circumstances there is a need for an authentic and comprehensive account of all three aspects of Srividya viz. the Yantra the mantra and the Tantra. This book is an attempt to provide one.

Along with all textual details concerning the philosophy and practice the philosophy and practice of Srividya relevant iconographic details with illustrations have also been given.

Introduction

Srividya is a discipline where abounds considerable mystery esotericism and occultism. There is among common people quite some ignorance concerning its philosophy and practice. There is also a host of doubts and uncertainties among practitioners themselves. The presence of different tradition in Srividya is a further source of confusion. The textual background to Srividya has almost become obscure and obsolete it has become more a matter of individual lineages of practices. In the circumstances there is need for an authentic and comprehensive account of all three aspects of Srividya viz. The Yantra the Mantra and The Tantra here is an attempt to provide one.

Along with all textual details concerning the philosophy and practice of Srividya I have also given here relevant iconographic details. Included in this volume is a mathematical treatment of Sri Cakra as a Yantra. I am indebted to the late Shri R.S. Narasimhan for having prepared this account which is at once relevant and unique. It is given as an appendix and as a separate monograph.

The photographs appearing on pages 123 to 128 are from Srinagar where on a huge rock Srichakra has appeared naturally in an elaborate design. This is under worship and the photographs were sent to me by me friend the well known Kashmiri artist Mr. Santosh I acknowledge his love and courtesy.

I am grateful to my friends the Guptas in the Indian books Centre who have undertaken to bring our this book in a revised edition. The production has been excellent and the Guptas merit all praise for it.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
