From the Jacket

This is the first translation into English of Vamakesvarimatam, on of the most authoritative and oft-quoted manuals of Sri Vidya, and one, furthermore, with decidedly a Kaula slant.

This Tantra is said to consist of two parts- that published here consisting of five patalas-and a second part known as Yogini Hrdaya which has three Patalas. However it has been common practice for both parts to be treated separately and the Translator has followed this custom.

It has been claimed that this Tantra is the 65th independent Tantra referred to in the famous Saundaryalahari. Because of its emphasis on Antaryaga, or internal worship, the Vamakesvara is thought of very highly.

In common with many other Tantras, Vamakesvara is also hard to understand owing to its use of codings and language meant only for the initiates. The detailed understanding of these codings depend on Oral instruction, for initiates only, and Mr. Magee being one such, has very successfully decoded the hidden meaning and made them clear in his Translation.

Vamakesvara Tantra is noteworthy for its fine style and content. Therefore its English Translation has made it accessible to the English speaking community for the first time.
