This book is, as the sub-title states, a collection of studies in, or essays upon, particular subjects in the Mantra-Sastra, a term, which is commonly applied to the Tantra-Sastra.

After chapter 1, which deals with the "word", chapters treat of the principles of the general doctrine of Sabda.

Chapters are elucidations of some subjects in the Tantra-Sastra which adopt the Mimamsa doctrine of Sabda with some modifications to meet its doctrine of Sakti. Chapters 12, 28 and 29 deal with the Mantras "Om" and the Gayatri. An understanding of such terms as Sakti, Nada, Bindu, the causal Saktis of the Pranava, Bijamantras and so forth, is essential for those who would understand the Sastra in which they appear hitherto knowledge of these matters has been confined where it exists at all to the Gurus and Sadhakas.

This does not mean that my information has been gathered from oral sources only. On the contrary, the substance of it may be found in the Tantras.

These are however generally unknown. The definitions must be sought for in many Sastras. When found they must be explained by the aid of general Sastric knowledge and of Upasakas who possess the tradition. One is indebted to him for his study of Tantra Sastra and the scholarly works he produced in English.

In line with the other classics the Author in the present Book has in great detail explained the significance of the Letters in the context of the Tantra knowledge. Thus it becomes a must for the student of Tantra Vidya. Perhaps he was the first to bring out in English a number of Books on the subject for the benefit of English Reader.

He has done immense service to the practitioners of Tantra and has Authored more than a dozen Books. Type your information below:. All orders will be processed as soon as possible.
