Tantra

Author(s): Philip Rawson

Mythology & Spirituality

Tantra is a set of beliefs and practices that originates in India and combines eroticism, magic and metaphysics. This book provides a lucid account of a much-misunderstood ancient mystical tradition that has long aroused spiritual and artistic curiosity in the West. The first part of the book gives an in-depth introduction to Tantrik rites and beliefs, while the eight Themes sections summarize and develop key topics. The book is illustrated throughout with vivid imagery from unusual and out-of-the-way sources worldwide. This is an illuminating introduction to Tantra and the art that expresses many of its erotic, mythical and mystical beliefs.
