    Abstract:
    This question, what may be the dangers of practising Tantra was asked on Quora. Tantra is very misunderstood both in the First World and in India itself. This 900 words' plus populist post argues against jumping into Tantra in any form; be it academic or praxis oriented. The first photo is of Ma Dhumavati, the second, of Sri Ramakrishna and the third is of Sri Ramanujacharya. The post is a cautionary one, asking interested people to first introspect for their morbid or sensual interest in Tantra.
    Notes:
    I am translating works on Tantra and have reviewed in the past and will continue to review works in this niche field.
