Description
Preface

The Religious practices prevalent in the modern Hindu society are influenced greatly by the puranas the agamas and the tantras. However the literature in the modern languages whether in English or in the Indian vernaculars on the agamas and the tantras is rather scanty. This monograph on the tantras is an earnest attempt to give in a nutshell the essential teachings of the same for the English knowing seekers. We have confined ourselves mainly to the works related to the cults of the Devi or the Sakti (God as the Divine Mother).

We sincerely hope that like our other booklets on similar subjects this monograph also will be welcomed as a useful publication.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
