Spiritual discipline or Yoga constitutes an inseparable partof the philosophy of every school, and especially the Tantricones, in which spiritual practices or s╚dhana kriy╚ dominate.This book opens with an account of the nature, origin anddevelopment of ’aiva-’akta Tantras, their classification underdifferent schools, the wealth of literature available belongingto these schools, etc., and sheds light on the principal metaphysicaltenets of ’aiva and ’╚kta Tantras. The book dealsalso with the concepts of divine Grace or aktip╚ta, guru andhis different kinds, the process of initiation (d¤k ╚) and itsvarieties, mantra s nature and place in s╚dhana kriy╚, etc.This book also attempts to remove the misconceptions widespreadin the academic world about the theory and practice ofTantra Yoga, which have been deliberately kept secret by thepractitioners to prevent their misuse by unscrupulous persons.Dr. Debabrata Sen Sharma is a well-known scholar of theAdvaita Shaiva thought of Kashmir.
