Kama-Kala-Vilasa is an ancient and authoritative work on Srividya. The Kamakala is the first display of activity in the Brahman Substance after Pralaya when the Devi holds absorbed in Herself all the Thirty-Six Tattvas of which the Universe in all its variety is composed. She remains for some time in this state holding within Herself all the Tattvas until rest is disturbed by the desire or will to create. The movement or stress of this Desire manifests as the Kamakala. Though the work will be appreciated most by initiates who have some background in tantric studies, it remains of great value because of its clear and succinct account, from the Hadi standpoint, of the initial development of Sakti and of the great Sri-Yantra.
