Tantrism along with Tantric literature, holds a very important place among ancient Indian literature, philosophy and culture.

This work is a sincere attempt to reveal to the layman, Tantrasastra and its exhaustive literature. Written in a simple and lucid style, this book makes a good read for both casual and serious readers of Indian sciences, mythology and philosophy.
