The Tantra of Śrī Chakra by S K Ramachandra Rao

The tantric texts which are influenced by the Atharvana Veda speak of ten vidyas or cultic goddesses whose worship is recommended for health and happiness in this world and for liberation from rebirth. The ten vidyas are classified into three groups, maha-vidyas or extraordinary vidyas, vidyas or ordinary vidyas and siddha-vidyas or adept vidyas which are very arduous. The first among the ordinary vidyas is Shodasi vidya or Sri-vidya. The Sri-chakra is the representation of the Sri-vidya. It is the chief instrument through which the mother goddess is propitiated. This book explains in great detail the symbolism behind the Sri-chakra, the rituals involved in the worship of Sri-chakra and the textual background going back to the Vedas. The source materials have also been given.
