Details

Tantraloka means light on Tantra – the magnum opus of Abhinavagupta (950-1050 A.D.). Literally Tantra means thread and happens to have been used in one of the earliest usage in the Rgveda (X.53.6) itself in such a deep sense as understanding binding the entire reality together in a single fold of comprehension so beneficial as to transform the human nature of all its baser kind of tendency into the most idealistic form which is known as the divine. This Volume consists of three Chapters, namely, 1,2, and 3. Volume 2 This volume has three chapers 4,5,6 and 7. Volume 3 This volume has two chapters, namely, 8 and 9. Volume 4 This Volume has four Chapters, namely, 10, 11, 12 and 13. Volume 6 This volume contains 12 chapters. Volume 7 This volume contains two Chapters. Volume 8 This Volume contains eight Chapters, namely 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37 as well as translation of 13 minor works of Abhinavagupta as appendices. Volume 9 This volume contains Glossary of technical words of Tantric terminology and Important Kashmir Savism Texts with English translation, which would be helpful for general readers and researchers as well as sincere practitioners
