  Forschungsdatenbank der Universität ZürichPhilosophische Fakultät > Asien-Orient-Institut > Indologie > Dr. Olga Serbaeva Saraogi Summary / Zusammenfassung Recent publications (appeared from 1980s) in Europe and America link various tantric traditionsand the experiences of special states of consciousness (ASC) such as voluntary possession,encounter with non-human beings and a whole range of particular psychological capacities varyingfrom predicting future to the ability of changing material world. The aim of the present research isto discover historical grounds for such link. The western transcreations of tantric texts (analyzed inchapter 1) are to be contrasted with the material found in Vidyapitha texts themselves (chapter 2)and particularly in the Jayadrathayamala, the text which indeed proposes various techniquessupposed to result in modified states of perception. I shall demonstrate that it was rather internalEuropean development of the concepts around altered states of consciousness than the textualstudy of the early shaiva tantras that permitted the named link. The final part of my research(chapter 3) shall establish relations between two historical sequences of related concepts called todefine Tantra on the one hand and altered states of consciousness on the other. It shall alsocontribute to some methodological questions such as problems of translation and transcreation, andwill propose new strategies of making the tantric concepts comprehensible for the western public.Weitere Informationen unter http://www.asienundeuropa.uzh.ch/aboutus/persons/postdoc/serbaeva.html Translating the Non-Evident: Altered States of Consciousness in Vidyapitha Tantras andin Western Transcreations of Tantrism Publications / Publikationen A Tentative Reconstruction of the Relative Chronology of the Shaiva Puranic and Shaiva TantricTexts on the Basis of the Yogini-related Passages.
