Description
About the Book

Sakti and Sakta by Sir John Woodroffe is a study on Shakta Tantric beliefs and practices. The book is an essential and indispensable volume on Tantra. It was written at the turn of the 20th century, during the British colonial occupation of India, and so it is not what one might call an easy or leisurely read. The text assumes some familiarity with Hindu and/or Tantric religious terms, so it would be helpful to keep a copy of John Grimes' A Concise Dictionary of Indian Philosophy: "Sanskrit Terms Defined in English" or other references handy while you're reading it. Nonetheless, it is an exciting piece of work, and still one of the best works on Shakta Tantra to be found

About the Author

Sir John George Woodroffe, also known by his pseudonym Arthur Avalon, was a British Orientalist whose work helped to unleash in the West a deep and wide interest in Hindu philosophy and Yogic practices.

Born: December 15, 1865, United Kingdom
