The Yoni Tantra This is an English translation of an important Kaula work related to the worship of the yoni of the goddess.

This translation of the eight chapters of this tantra is an invaluable guide to inner tantrik worship.

Laid out in book form as printable and editable Adobe Acrobat PDF file. Introduction and translation by Michael Magee. $5 inclusive.
