The meanings of five makars which have been misinterpreted by the uninformed have been explained clearly with reference to the tantric texts. The chakra form of worship and its proper significance have been noted and explained by quoting different passages from the various texts of different authors on the subject. An attempt has been made to present an idea of the greatness of the deity whom the tantrics worship. The several preliminary steps to yoga practice leading to the penultimate state of samadhi, the physical processes adopted for the control of breath have also been discussed in the book.
