The Sakta Tantra is a Sadhana Shastra of Monistic (Advaitavada) Vedanta. It is to me a profound & powerful system, and its doctrine of Sakti or Divine Power is one of the greatest evolved, through spiritual intuition, by the human mind which, according to its teachings, is a manifestation of the Divine Consciousness itself (Siva). The green and silver of the prairie is splashed here and there with patches of orange flower, which the blazing sun jewels with its points of light. The near distance shows the water of a mountain tarn and two clumps of trees - the grove of worship of the ancient Kolarian peoples. Here a sparse remnant adore to-day, as did their ancestors thousands of years ago. Of Brahminism or other Aryan faith, there is no sign. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
