The volume is an exhaustive study on the worship and rituals associated with the Hindu goddess Taravidya. It presents the original texts of the Taratantra along with the Roman transliteration of the verses and their English translation. It details aspects of the Tara cult including the forms of Tara, mantras associated with Tara worship, Taradhyanas, Tarakavacham and Taradiksha and gives a detailed account of the methods in which Tara is worshipped. With illustrations of the goddesses, it throws light on some of the origin myths associated with the Kali, dashamahavidyas and other goddesses who are recognised as part of the Tara cult. There are also short life histories of those associated with the preaching and practice of the Tara cult.
