Danny Lowe - Dattatreya
A note from the author:
This talk is about the Hindu Deity and yogi figure, Dattatreya. I wanted to talk about him because he's an interesting and little known figure (at least in the West), who I find fascinating and well deserving of our attention. Also because I felt that talking about Dattatreya would provide many useful jumping off points for discussing some aspects of the tantric traditions, Indian religion and my own practice, which might provide some insight into what it means to be thinking about and practising Tantra in the UK in the 21st Century. Before moving onto him, I thought it might be useful to talk a little about why how these talks came about - basically, this series of talks have arisen out of the meetings of the London Tantra discussion group, which is a loose informal group that arisen from a mutual interest in Tantra - this interest usually but not exclusively sparked off by some involvement or contact with the old AMOOKOS network.
