The Yoginihrdaya, a Hindu tantric text dating back to the tenth or eleventh century CE, discloses to initiates the secret of the Heart of the Yogini, or the supreme Reality: the divine plane where the Goddess Tripurasundari, or Consciousness itself manifests her power and glory, through her yantra, mantra, and worship.

Padoux demonstrates that the Yoginihrdaya is not a philosophical treatise aimed at expounding particular metaphysical tenets. Rather it aims to show a way towards liberation, or, more precisely, to a tantric form of liberation in this life- jivanmukti , which grants both liberation from the fetters of the world and domination over it.

The Hindu Tantric World : An Overview

This accessible volume on Tantra written by a widely esteemed doyen of the field of Tantric studies offers a concise, readable overview of a complex and difficult subject—difficult in no little part because the term Tantra itself has for a contemporary readership been called on to cover far too many divergent religious practices and textual sources. The impossibility of proposing a satisfactory and comprehensive definition of Tantra has plagued nearly every scholarly attempt to offer an understanding of the rich, diverse collection of phenomena called Tantra. Padoux does not attempt to remedy this, but rather with an endearing humility limns the complexity of the subject and acknowledges the limitations implicit in any sort of broadly conceived approach, as this book must necessarily be.
