Tantric Hedonism of Mahanadi Valley (Uddiyana Pitha)

Jitamitra Prasad Singh Deo (Author)
Synopsis Man has the quality to plunge, dive and strike to the inner moods through Tantric Yoga for self-realization. Tantra is a parallel cultivation of the Vedic wisdom through which India reached its topmost zenith. Based on the dual conception of creation, with the participation of “Siva” and “Sakti”, the germinator and the nurturer respectively, tantra is a highly complex system of philosophical thought. The Vedic rsis discovered the yoga of sexual transformation to raise the kundalini which symbolizes woman as a medium of sacrifice and the copulation as an act of sacrifice. In the present book, the yogic development in the Mahanadi Valley which evolved erotic mysticism has been dealt with. Based on intensive research in the field area and studying a range of archaeological findings and comparing them with historical details, the work examines the evolution of Tantric Cults, particularly the Lajja Gauri Cult in the valley, and interprets in depth the composite yogic-tantric figures and symbols that are said to depict all hatha yogic features. With numerous pictures, maps and other illustrations, it emphasizes on the art and architectural expressions of tantric belief in the region. Furthermore, the concept of sex to super-consciousness has been described with details of intuitive knowledge. The detailed description of the erogenous zones of female during different moon days and the sixty-four sexual poses (bandhas) comprised in the appendix are highly informative. The volume will be extremely useful to scholars of Indian religion, philosophy and art and informative to others keen on knowing about tantra.
