Yantra The Tantric Symbol Of Cosmic Unity
Yantra The Tantric Symbol Of Cosmic Unity
Description
'A lovely book, a worthy introduction to a noble subject'
- Arts Review.

The yantra is the Tantric tool of ritual and meditation, the power diagram which allows man to make the spiritual journey of return to the primordial centre, and ultimately to perceive the unity of self and cosmos. This pioneering comprehensive study reveals step by step the dynamics of this process, by elucidating the complex symbolic construction of the yantra with its multiple layers of metaphysical meaning. Madhu Khanna illuminates the correspondence between geometrical forms and concepts, and explores every aspect of the yantra: its associated mantras, rituals and meditation techniques; its application to temple architecture and sculpture; its traditional use in 'black' and 'white' magic and as a talisman.

About the Author:

Madhu Khanna is a scholar of Eastern and Western philosophy, and co-author with Ajit Mookerjee of the Tantric Way, also published by Thames and Hudson.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
