Pages: 56

Preface
The Religious practices prevalent in the modern Hindu society are influenced greatly by the puranas the agamas and the tantras. However the literature in the modern languages whether in English or in the Indian vernaculars on the agamas and the tantras is rather scanty. This monograph on the tantras is an earnest attempt to give in a nutshell the essential teachings of the same for the English knowing seekers. We have confined ourselves mainly to the works related to the cults of the Devi or the Sakti (God as the Divine Mother).
We sincerely hope that like our other booklets on similar subjects this monograph also will be welcomed as a useful publication.
