It is lesser known fact that the tantra flourished in southern India in the state of Kerala. Like that of Kashmir and Bengal.

Kerela tantrism is also specialised and is called as kerala mantrikam or kerala mantravaadam.

What are main features of this ?

Are there any lineages or scripture related to this ?

    Amazingly all the Tantra places seem cursed now - Kashmir, Kerala & WB! Mar 24, 2018 at 15:40
  • @Rakesh Kerala mantravaadam or mantrik usually worship Devils. They use their powers to help the villagers or whoever goes to them in exchange of money. I don't know Mantrikam (person who does rituals through mantra) still exists. But they don't worship gods or deities. They have their own Puja style as per their scriptures. I don't know tantra has devil worshipping Scriptures. But if you are asking about godly scriptures then mantravaadam is not the case.

  • @Salvation no it's not true.yes they have own process but whole mantrikam is not based on what you say. Its wide subject Mar 25, 2018 at 2:29
  • @Rakesh I don't know if mantrikam is related to god, but if you go there and ask anyone about mantrikam, then they will only think about these things. If you are talking about Tantra related to gods, then I don't have much knowledge about it.

    @Mr.Sigma. exactly. It seems all places where tantra used to reign like Bengal,Kashmir and Kerala (even Assam to an extant) are cursed now. Which really makes me wonder about tantric paths as a whole. Even tibet followed tantric paths almost similar to Hinduism.
