Abhinava Gupta's magnum opus the "Tantraloka" is a great work in the ambience of tantragama treatise. This precept consists of right descriptions of almost all branches of saiva and sakta agama. The right will to translate the entire work into English (Direct from Samskrta) is arisen in the mind of Mr. Gautam Chatterjee. As the result, the translation work of the first chapter has been completed with illustrious footnotes. I pray to Lord Siva, who blesses with his Trisula of powers i.e. will, knowledge and action, may accomplish the translations of the entire work. I believe, all the scholars of the tantragama will appreciate this work with their blessings.
