The Tantric Way
The Tantric Way
Description
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.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
