Maya Swati Devi’s introduction
From my two great passions, Tantrism and Indian Dance, a book is born, a wholehearted tale written in a poetic form as a dialogue that started within me and expanded infinitely.
Dance and Tantrism are two paths I have been following since an early age and they have guided every step and choice in my life. Tantrism is a ‘female path’ and this book is my tribute to the Great Goddess.
My goal is to tell my own personal and real experience of the tantric path and of dance in a magical and spiritual land, from when I first set foot in India.
This book is not autobiographical but narrative and reflects the evolutionary path that brought me close to the Supreme Śakti, who manifested herself in her various forms.
It has been an inner journey that has led me to interact with many ancient souls, friends, masters, researchers, or simple companions of life. Fundamental to me was the research based on my body experience, which started very early on, through dance and yoga. Over the years learning from great spiritual masters the purest dancers in India, has enabled me to become a “dancing Yoginī”.
