Auspicious Wisdom

Quantity:

Rooting itself in Kashmir Shaivism, Srividya became a force in south India no later than the seventh century, and eventually supplanted the Trika as the dominant Tantric tradition in Kashmir. This is the first comprehensive study of the texts and traditions of this influential school of goddess-centered, Sakta Tantrism. Centering on the goddess's three manifestations--the beneficent deity Lalita Tripurasundari her mantra, and the visually striking sricakra--Srividya creates a systematic esoteric discipline that combines elements of the yogas of knowledge, of devotion, and of ritual. Utilizing canonical works, historical commentaries, and the interpretive insights of living practitioners, this book explores the theological and ritual theories that form the basis for Srividya practice and offers new methods for critical and comparative studies of esoteric Hinduism.

About the Author:

DOUGLAS RENFREW BROOKS is Assistant Professor of religion and Director of Asian Studies, University of Rochester. Brook's textual and historical investigations of Sakta tantrism are augmented by extensive field work and experience among contemporary practitioners.

TESTIMONIALS

Thanks again for the exceptionally honest business practices. I think a majority of retailers would have popped that book in the mail, no questions asked.... I'm truly grateful for your attention to detail and your spirit of putting the customer first. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Moments like that remind me how the divine manifests in the everyday transactions of life too.... I look forward to returning to Vedic Books again....
