About the Book

 

This book deals with all those components, which help understanding Sri Vidya and Sri Cakra better. The book consists of nine chapters, symbolically representing the nine enclosures, navavranas in the Sri Cakra. From a very basic introduction required to understand the concept of Mantra, Yantra and Tantra it gradually moves on to the subtleties by discussing allied aspects in the later chapters. After discussing the geometrical features of Sri Cakra and the details of nine enclosures there is a chapter on Sri Cakra and Sri Vidya, followed by one on Kundalini. It deals with the esoterics with an exclusive chapter on the meaning of the Mantra and another on the concept of Tripura Sundari. The next chapter is about puja where a simple puja sequence is given from among the many available with necessary cautions and precautions.

 

The appendix of this book carries the eleven compositions of Kamalamba Navavarana Krtis of Muttusvami Diksitar. The songs are given in Sanskrit text, transliterated with diacritical marks with word to word meaning and summary in English. Sriram Parasuram and Anooradha Sriram have rendered them in 2 CDs enclosed.
