This is book number 71 in the Asian Thought and Culture series.


Language of Images is the result of a long and sustained engagement with Tantric practitioners and philosophical and exegetical texts. Due to its synthetic approach of utilizing multiple ways to read cultural artifacts, this work stands alone in its attempt to unravel the esoteric domains of Tantric practice by means of addressing the culture of visualization.

He is currently working on the philosophical and psychological aspects of memory, disposition, recognition, imagination, and emotion.
