Dasamahavidya-Mimamsa is an authority based on the doctrines of NIGAMA-AGAMAS of Indian Philosophy.
In this book, the Tantric Scholar, Dr. Rakesh, has evaluated the origin of Dasamahavidya on a scientific basis with the help of numerous authoritative agama-granthas. He has very specifically brought to light this fact that the Dasamahavidya-upasana is a very tough and grace-loving process and deserves a deep study of each Duty and the secret of Its Yantra and symbols. He has boldly declared the fact that in this Kaliyuga, it is only the worship of Dasamahavidya that can be fruitful to its devotee. Out of Ten Goddesses Kali, Tara, Bhuvanesi, Sodasi, Matangi etc. Kali, Tara and Bhuvanesi are very powerful; however, Sri Vidya has been accepted as the source of the highest liberation.
The entire book, "Dasamahavidya-Mimamsa" has been divided into three parts: Dasamahavidya - Original, Dasamahavidya-Mimamsa, Dasamahavidya - Upasana.
This book is an authority and very useful for the readers of Tantra. It has ousted all misconceptions about Tantra Philosophy.
