When I felt that my sojourn in Delhi was over and was returning home, Shri Rama Avatar Gupta, the Chairman of M/s. Pustak Mahal gave me his solemn assurance that he would remain in contact and keep on giving assignments for writing books. Before I was able to complete the previous assignments, I got his call and he assigned me another work of my choice: a book on Mantra, Tantra and Yantra. I have been working on these devotional ways and related things for decades. I collected my notes and diaries and the resultant work is before you: Mantra, Tantra and Yantra.
Shiva is the integral power of Brahma and Shiva is the manifest form of Brahma. Both Shiva and Shiva are one and inseparable. There is no distinction between them other than the fact that one is the male and the other is female. To worship one is to worship the other. Most people worship both but some worship Shiva and other Shiva. The worship of both is the same. This is the theory behind creation. Power is inherent in the object and the object contains power. Throughout the cosmos, whatever is male in nature is Shiva and whatever is female, is Bhagwati Uma. The praise of one is the praise of the other.
This book, Mantra, Tantra and Yantra, presents these three different ways of worshipping of the manifest form of Shiva and Shiva. Shiva and Shiva pervade all and are projected through each living and non-living entity. The whole Brahmand contains sounds like Mantras and functions as Tantra or Yantra. In other words, the total universe is based on Mantra, Tantra and Yantra; In other words, the total universe is based on Mantra, Tantra and yahtra; and inseparable from them. It is beauty behind worshipping; the aesthetic sense; scientific function and general and spiritual philosophy behind them. As we are unable to grasp the mystery behind the creation, in the same way we are unable to understand these three ways: Mantra; Tantra and Yantra. That may be our weakness but these three represent the value and power of sound; System and Machines. Our body, like the universe and other bodies has divine sound akin to life; it is itself a mysterious machine and works on a designed system. All the different systems of the body are one system; as all the systems of the cosmos are one system.
Separate worshipping or combined worshipping, whatever the case may be, they are worshipped in all the three ways: Mantra; Tantra and Yantra; and all three ways are actually one thing; oneway, and inseparable. The worshipping though the three ways mentioned above are to show one’s respect and gratitude to the Creator; for inner growth; for acquisition of immense power; for Union with the Soul, Self or Revelation of Truth; for celestial pleasure and finally, for Moksha, Salvation.
The book Mantra, Tantra, Yantra is complete and gives comprehensive details of both the theoretical and practical aspects, and will provide insight into each aspect of these three differently named but similar or one worshipping. It will definitely prove helpful to general readers; researchers; learned devotees; practitioners, Pandits; Sadhus; Yagis and Trantriks; and for that young generation who knows nothing about them and has no inkling of the emormous power they generate and give. It is a handbook for revelation and inner growth for all.
