Tripura Rahasya: Secrets of Shakti

The Tripura Rahasya—literally, the “secret of three cities”—is one of the most important source texts of tantra. Set as a dialogue between the sage Dattatreya and his student Parashurama, it asks (and answers) some of the most compelling questions of spiritual seekers: How can I make real progress on the spiritual path? If I have committed “sins” or mistakes, can I still aspire to enlightenment? How can I go beyond self-delusion in order to live an authentic life?

In this multimedia series, introduced by Swami Rama, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait distills the wisdom of this dialogue and recasts it for modern yogis, telling stories of how self-condemnation and revenge can lead to self-forgiveness, compassion, and wisdom born of experience. Follow this series to learn about one of tantra’s ultimate secrets—how to harness shakti to transform ourselves and the world outside us.
