Definition[ edit ] Ancient and medieval era[ edit ] The earliest definitions and expositions on Tantra come from the ancient texts of Panini, Patanjali and the literature of the language-focussed, ritual-oriented Mimamsa school of Hindu philosophy.
He uses the same example of svatantra as a composite word of "sva" self and tantra, then stating "svatantra" means "one who is self-dependent, one who is his own master, the principal thing for whom is himself", thereby interpreting the definition of tantra. When an action or a thing, once complete, becomes beneficial in several matters to one person, or to many people, that is known as Tantra.

There is a wide gap between what Tantra means to its followers, and what Tantra has been represented or perceived as since colonial era writers began commenting on Tantra.

Clockwise from upper left: These are neither compulsory nor universal in Tantrism. It is a system, adds Brown, that gives each follower the freedom to mix Tantric elements with non-Tantric aspects, to challenge and transgress any and all norms, experiment with "the mundane to reach the supramundane".All gods obey Indra, but all gods also obey Varuna, Vishnu, Rudra and others when the situation arises.
Further, Indra also accepts and follows the instructions of Savitr (solar deity). Indra, like all Vedic deities, is a part of henotheistic theology of ancient India. Indra is initially unconvinced, and Pike tells Murphy not to waste his breath.
Murphy asks Indra, as she prepares to cut Pike's throat, whether she wants revenge, or her people to live. She replies "both", and states that she will have her revenge on Pike, but acknowledges Murphy's points and lets Pike live.
