Sakti: The Power of Tantra

Regular Price $14.95

A Scholarly Approach
Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD

The unfoldment of shakti, the power inherent in the core of our being, is the key to all worldly and spiritual success. All spiritual traditions, particularly tantra, aim at awakening this dormant power within us. Because it is so vital to our inner growth, without having an in-depth knowledge of the role of shakti, the study and practice of any spiritual tradition is like farming barren ground.

The subject matter of this work, while seemingly focused only on shakti, nevertheless opens doors to a vast range of tantric philosophy and practices. It clarifies how tantric philosophy and practice unify the concepts of yantra, mandala, mantra, chakra, kundalini, deities, and ritualistic and meditative practices. It also explains the relationship among the different branches of tantra and tackles the controversial issues concerning the right-handed and left-handed tantric practices.

"It is a serious and scholarly work concerning an important but little-understood aspect of the teachings of India. His book will make it easier for people to see tantra as a path to God, rather than seeing it trivialized, as it has been. Congratulations to Pandit Rajmani for making this worthwhile contribution available."
—Swami Kriyananda

"Panditji masterfully translates the secret language of the tantric scriptures to reveal their hidden meaning and make its wisdom more accessible to the sincere student."
—Sri Swami Satchidananda

"Shakti: The Power of Tantra is not only useful to scholars but to anyone who wants a deeper view of tantra and its unfoldment of the secrets of both psyche and cosmos. Such scholarship is badly needed and clears away many misconceptions about this important and beautiful system."
