This is a Tantrika work. The subjects dealt with
in this work are swiftly fading away in most parts
of the country. But in the region of Kerala, Mantra
Sastra and Agada Tantra (Toxicology) are still in
vogue where many people are interested in learning
and practising the traditional lines of these arts.
Tantric remedial principles and medicine are not
contrary to each other but according to Aric view
points they are concomitant. l A Tantra comprises five
subjects the creation, the destruction, the worship
of the Gods, the attainment of all objects and
magical rites- The author of this work describes
all these subjects except the first. This work on such
varied Tantrika topics was written some years ago
(15th or 16th Century A, DO with a view to revive
these fainting ancient arts by one scholar Nar5ya$a
who is considered to be one of the top-ranking men
well versed in these subjects in Kerala.
