Among the traditional philosophies and schools of Hinduism the idea of the identity between macrocosm and microcosm is prominent in classical Advaita Vedanta as well as in the more colourful and popular Tantric systems. This study centers upon the development and expression of the idea in the more philosophical aspects of Tantric Hinduism; for it is here that we find the most significant thought, symbolism and rituals that have given rise to great works of art as in the examples of painting sculpture and architecture used as illustratins in the text.
