About the Book

This text belonged to an obscure cult among the Indian Tantra practitioners. Arya Drãvida Vidya-Raja is one of the new Tantra texts of unique nature having its Dhãrani in order to save the practitioners from the evils ahead. This book throws more light in application of the sono-efficacy of mantra syllables in Dhãrani. The collection and explanation of the Dharanimantras in this volume constitute a valuable contribution to Tibetan studies.

 

Foreword

This is a Tibetan work dealing with what is called DRAMILAVIDYA, which was developed by an obscure cult of Indian Tantrikas, who believed that the correct utterance of certain Mantra-syllables in Dharani might remove poison from the body, and cure certain diseases. This work throws light on esoteric practices, which are derivatives of a system of quackery, prevalent in an undeveloped social system. The collection and explanation of the Dharaimantras in this volume constitute a valuable contribution to Tibetan studies, for which the author deserves the appreciation of the scholars.

 

Preface

Arya-Drãvida (Drãmila) Vidyã-rãja requires a few words to introduce as the text belonged to an obscure cult among the Indian Tantra practitioners. The Naga cult, tabooed with poison deal in the hoary olden days, had been controlled by the practitioners of the Garuividyã. The puraIic evidences of enmity between the Naga(s) and the Gãrua(s) delineate with episode. Its Buddhist relevance has been depicted in the Nagananda-nalakam ascribed to Shri-Harsa available in Sanskrit and its Tibetan rendering with the Bodhisattva ideal. The present text edited by Dr. Bhakti De and published by the Asiatic Society, Kolkata throws more light in application of the sono-efficacy of mantra syllables in Dhãrani. The episode element in background substantiates the appeasement of wrath in spreading venom by the serpent king by the request of Buddha who blessed them all. Thereafter the snakes have promised not to use their poisonous fangs unless they are disturbed in their peaceful living.

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
