Description

“We worship the Three-eyed Lord who is fragrant and who nourishes all beings.”

“As the ripened cucumber is freed from its bondage to the creeper, may He liberate us from Death for the sake of Immortality.”

Deep within the mysterious caves of the Himalayas, saturated by the cosmic radiations of the sacred Mount Kailas and Lake Manasarovar, manifests a radically unique current of Esoteric Hinduism: A Tantric Physics.

First explored in Tantric Physics Vol. I: Cave of the Numinous, the new release from Anathema Publishing, Tantric Physics II: Sacred Body, Sacred Space continues to express the haunting inner realizations of initiatic perceptions. Embracing both the Right-Hand and Left-Hand Paths, the text reveals a unique vision of a Tantric Physics utilizing all branches of Vaidika sciences: Yoga, Ayurveda, Jyotish, Vedanta, and Tantra.

Far from a dry academic text, Tantric Physics II: Sacred Body, Sacred Space reveals an intensely personal initiatic vision of the human body, Shivaite and Vaishnava gnostic streams, and the mysterious path of the Aghori leading unto the Womb of the Dark Goddess in all Her intoxicating manifestations.

Included within the upcoming publication is the reprint of the long sold-out Tantric Physics I: Cave of the Numinous, which presents critical preparatory materials for the shadowy pathways in the smashan of Tantric Physics.

“I will meet you in the smashan under the waning moon, the smell of burning flesh reminds us of MahaMaya, did they hear Your voice at Golgotha?

 “We welcome the demons who consume our samskaras, clearing the path to your Embrace, Sri Gopisvara Mahadeva…” ~Sri Gopisvara Mahadeva-Gita
