Germany: Theion Publishing, 2019. Limited to 756 copies only. A FINE CLOTH COPY, Smythe-sewn, archival, bound in scarlet cloth, embossed, with special custom end papers. Seven original full page drawings by Erica Frevel, and additional illustrations. The transgressive cultus of the wild, blood-thirsty and demon-slaying Matrikas (“little Mothers”) are among the most fascinating, but least treated areas, of South Asian spirituality and magic. Exploring the rich history of the Matrika Cult as well as the tantric background in which it has survived, the new work, FEROCIOUS, takes the reader deep into initiatic terrain. The goddesses are examined as a group followed by chapters for each individual Matrika, elaborating Her unique origins, iconography and mantras. An appendix offers a full treatise on an eighth Matrika sometimes worshipped with the other seven. 272 pages. Royal octavo. (Item ID: T-FE)
