Tantric Texts Series 1-22 Complete PDF works of Sir John Woodroffe

Tantric Texts is the impressive, near-complete 22 volume collection of tantric root texts compiled, edited and commented by Arthur Avalon (Sir John Woodroffe) from 1915 to 1953. The works have only been printed once in their complete form, by Agamanusandhana Samiti, Calcutta, and they are practically impossible to find in print. There is however a 4.000-page compilation with translations of the Sanskrit material available from Amazon. Find it here: https://amzn.to/2OgbgZT

Please consider that the works below are huge files, some larger than 120MB. Interesting for English readers are only the long introductions and comments on key tantric concepts, most of the works are printed in Sanskrit.

4 thoughts on “Tantric Texts Series 1-22 Complete PDF works of Sir John Woodroffe”

  1. Thank you for these books. Outside of the English I cannot read a word of these important truths from the past. I wish I could. What’s important to me is the connection you have shared with us into the past. We today seldom even think of those who have traveled this way before us.
    We have for the most part become a shallow people
    For myself I feel history. And I am remembering these words.
    “If we don’t learn from history- we are doomed to repeat it”
    May these books help awaken us to turn off our video games and redirect our minds to learning reality.

  2. Hi friends of holybooks.First of all thank you for your books.
    I have downloaded 3 books of the tantric series,but I haven’t been able to download the book 15 of this series.
    Could you tell me what books of this series are totally in english?.
    Thank you very much.
    Best wishes.
