 Principles of Tantra (2 Vols.)  Sir John Woodroffe Principles of Tantra (2 Vols.)   $62.99  $47.24  Buy Now 
This book contains the Tantratattva of Shriyukta Shiva Chandra Vidyarnava Bhattacharyya Mahodaya. The work here translated is that on an Indian mind unaffected by western thought. Apart from its intrinsic merits, it has such value as being the record of the views of an English educated Hindu, who finds in the conclusions of recent western science a corroboration of his ancient eastern beliefs. Its author modestly says: "I have attempted to give the reader the result of a general survey... 
 The Serpent Power: Shat-Chakra-Nirupana and Paduka-Panchaka  Sir John Woodroffe (Arthur Avalon) The Serpent Power: Shat-Chakra-Nirupana and Paduka-Panchaka   $32.49  $24.37  Buy Now 
This work is a description and explanation in fuller detail of the Serpent Power (Kundali Shakti), and the Yoga effected through it, a subject occupying a pre-eminent place in the Tantra Shastra. It consists of a translation of two Sanskrit works published some years ago in the second volume of my series of Tantrik Texts, but hitherto untranslated. 
 Sakti and Sakta - Essays and Addresses  Sir John Woodroffe Sakti and Sakta - Essays and Addresses   $32.99  $24.74  Buy Now 
These lectures and other collected papers traverse new ground in the Literature of Indian Religion, for they are the first attempt to give an authenticated and understanding general account of the chief features of the Doctrine and Practice of Indian worshippers who are called Saktas, and who adore the Divine Power as Mahadevi, the Great Mother of the universe. The Sakta Tantra is a Sadhana Sastra of Monistic Vedanta. It is a profound and powerful system, and its doctrine of Sakti or Divine... 
 The Great Liberation  Sir John Woodroffe The Great Liberation   $31.49  $23.62  Buy Now 
This work is a valuable commentary on the Indian Tantras which constitute the Scripture of the Kaliyuga, and as such are a voluminous source of present and practical orthodox Hinduism. The Tantra Sastra is a development of the Karmakanda promulgated to meet the needs of that age. Yet of all the forms of Indian Sastra, the Tantra is that which is least known and understood, a circumstance in part due to the difficulties of its subject-matter and to the fact that the key to much of its... 
 The Garland of Letters  Sir John Woodroffe The Garland of Letters   $28.49  $21.37  Buy Now 
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. it is practically composed of two parts. After chapter 1, which deals with the "word", chapters 2-9 treat of the principles of the general doctrine of Sabda. Chapters 10-21 are elucidations of some subjects in the Tantra-Sastra which adopt the Mimamsa doctrine of Sabda with some modifications to meet its... 
 Hymns to the Goddess  Sir John Woodroffe (Arthur Avalon) Hymns to the Goddess   $11.49  $8.62   
Temporarily Out of Stock
A goddess is a female deity. Many cultures have goddesses. Most often these goddesses are part of a polytheistic system that includes several deities. Pantheons in various cultures can include both goddesses and gods, and in some cases also intersex deities.In both ancient and modern cultures, the symbolism of gendered deities is open to a wide variety of interpretations. The primacy of a monotheistic or near-monotheistic goddess is advocated by some modern matriarchists and pantheists as a... 
 Hymns to Kali  Sir John Woodroffe (Arthur Avalon) Hymns to Kali   $18.49  $13.87  Buy Now 
"Kali is a Hindu goddess with a long and complex history in Hinduism. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilation still has some influence, while more complex Tantric beliefs sometimes extend her role so far as to be the Ultimate Reality (Brahman) and Source of Being. She is also known and revered as Bhavatarini (meaning: redeemer of the universe Dakshineswar Kali Temple). Finally, the comparatively recent devotional movement largely...

When recall to the West Principles which both East and West held to before the batter's entry upon some paths of modern aberration. But who will listen to any message, indeed who can give it-if it we not given by a free, thinking, and respect-earning self.

 The World as Power  John Woodroffe The World as Power   $31.49  $23.62  Buy Now 
The present book is the first of a series which I hope to be able to complete, explaining succinctly some general philosophical principles of the Doctrine of Sakti or Power from the Sakta Vedantna standpoint. A correspondent once asked me - what was that? The answer is, that is it is that Doctrine which is to be found, expressly or implicity, in the Tantras of the Agama-Sastra of the Advaita Sakta and Saiva communities of worshippers. The two have points in common in (amongst others) their...
