Description

Foreword

Sakti worship effects a reconciliation of the paths of work, love and reason. It is in agreement with the findings of modern science. While followers of different creeds quarrel among themselves, the Sakta has no quarrel with any of them. Sankara Bhagavatpada in ancient times and Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa in modern times have demonstrated through their lives and teachings that such a reconciliation is not only possible but also necessary. They have proved that all paths pursued with devotion to truth lead to the same goal, that Mantras are efficacious, that Devatas and higher powers exist and that step by step the divine Mother leads the Sadhaka to higher and higher levels of consciousness till he reaches perfection and becomes one with the Supreme Reality.

Sri Sankaracharya's Soundaryalahari, Lalita Trisati Bhashyam, Prapancha Sara and numerous Stotras give us a deep insight into the secrets of Sakti worship. The Tripura Sundari Ashtakam, short and sweet in a mellifluous metre, mountains, as if in a nutshell, the entire philosophy of Sakti worship. This is able brought out in this little book by Sri S. Kameswar of Bombay, as a result of his deep study and meditation. The full significance of the name Tripura Sundari is explained in his introduction. Each Sloka is given in the original Sanskrit followed by a running translation in beautiful verse and explanatory notes on important points. The author has given several interesting anecdotes gathered from folklore, about places of Sakti worship and persons reputed as recipients of the mother's grace.

The implications of Kundalini Yoga, Guru Tattwa, Siddhis and allied topics are discussed in their context and the conclusions are supported by scriptural texts and writings of learned scholars and saints. With regard to Siddhis for example, the author quotes Swami Vivekananda: "These powers, however, are obstructions to the attainment of the highest Goal the knowledge of the pure Self and freedom. These are, as it were, to be met on the way and if the Yogi rejects them, he attains the highest. If he is tempted to acquire these, his further progress in barred."

The author has attempted to explain in simple language the profundities of Sri Vidya and the Divine Mother has blessed his effort with success.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
