Description

From the Jacket

The present work, though non-technical in nature, is comprehensive, and apart from dealing with the Tantric terms and concepts pertaining to various forms of religious system, also contains entries on extra-religious contents of Tantrism such as chemical and medical sciences, philosophical speculations especially on metaphysics and epistemology, yoga and physical exercises. Tantric deities are also dealt with- the hundreds of gods and goddesses who have no independent and real existence apart from the mind of the worshipper and the manner of worship. Tantric texts, with brief details of their contents and publication, are recorded. All the important entries contain textual references which will prove useful to scholars and researchers. The volume also contains a large and updated bibliography and a comprehensive introduction.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

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

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art.
