Mahanirvana Tantra

ByArthur Avalon

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
These texts describe the esoteric teachings of Tantra, a belief system which originated in India. Tantra has become a synonym in the West for unbridled sexuality; however sexuality is only one facet of this elaborate spiritual practice. The Tantra of the Great Liberation: Translated by Arthur Avalon. This is the best known of the Tantric scriptures. It was translated by Sir John Woodruffe (under the pseudonym 'Arthur Avalon'), one of the few Indologists to gain direct access to this rare, obscure and secretive branch of Hinduism. Framed as a conversation between the god Shiva and goddess Shaki, this text describes the esoteric principles of the chakras, or subtle energy structure of the human body, ceremonies, yogic practices and mantras for meditation, and a summary of the Hindu laws (dharma) regarding sexual behavior. This is an inspired work and one which delves deeply into the subject.
