Geometric forms used for centuries as tools for meditation, Tantric yantras were lost to the modern world until Johari's research revealed them. His illustrations of yantras are reproduced in full color. This book is the perfect next step for those wishing to know more about the esoteric aspects of Tantra. Detailed explanations of Mantras, Yantras and ritual are included here. Many full color plates show the various Hindu goddesses and their relational aspects to the inner life. Precise construction methods for the Yantras and full color plates are also included. Harish Johari is an excellent artist and his detailed drawings and paintings embelish the often difficult to find, rich information this book provides.

This book is a classic in its field.
