Description: ‘The Vinasikhatantra’ is a succinct but unique religious text in Sanskrit. At present it seems to be the only surviving text of the ‘Left Current’ in Saiva Tantrism. The form of Siva adored is the little known manifestation called Tumburu who is surrounded by four saktis called Jaya, Vijaya, Jayanti, and Aparajita. The text also discusses the mandala and the mantras of these deities. The book contains text of the ‘Vinasikhatantra,’ a translation, an index of half-slokas (odd Padas), and an index of important Sanskrit words.
