Publisher's Synopsis

Inherent in this body of knowledge is an understanding of the cycles of creation and destruction which, in conjunction with astronomical phases, determine the lifespan of the species. Since 1939, humankind has been in the twilight of the Kali Yuga.

Excerpt

"Shaivism, the religion of the ancient Dravidians, was always the religion of the people. Its metaphysical, cosmological and ritual conceptions were preserved by communities of wandering ascetics living on the fringe of the offical society, whom the Aryans scornfully called Yati (wanderers), Vratya (untouchables), or Ajivika (beggars)."
