In recent years, the west has shown a wide and enthusiastic interest in tantra and its application to everyday life. Though its roots are in Hinduism, tantra's goals are the universal ones of self-knowledge and liberated joy. So its methods and effects transcend geography and era. Basing its approach on a historical and explanatory survey, This book deals in a detailed way with astronomy, astrology, alchemy,and cosmology in tantrism. In addition, there is discussion of the different viewpoints of 'left-hand' and 'right-hand' tantrikas and their respective attitudes towards human sexuality and its place in ritual. The drawings and illustration serve further to explain and instruct, thus providing a unique opportunity for close contact with one of the world's oldest practical methods of achieving an expanded and creative awareness of oneself. Ajit Mookerjee (1915-90) spent many years studying and living according to tantric principles, and his deep knowledge of the West enabled him to provide in the The Tantric Way a practical and effective guide to tantra's methods and attitudes. His other books include Kundalini, Ritual Art of India and Kali. Madhu Khanna is a scholar of eastern and western philosophies.
