Mill Street: it’s at the tāntrik crossroads

As a practising tāntrik ( see www.shivashakti.com) I find myself most fortunate to live in Mill Street, Oxford – the mill mentioned in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales a long time ago.

At the end  of my road is a crossroads, and the Osney cemetery is ideal for tāntrik practices and close to a river.  It’s also haunted by owls, bats, badgers  and bhūtas (the spirits) and pretas (phantoms).   I’ve heard that brahma rakshas occupy the dying oaks round here. Even more ideal, is that the crossroads has a bridge to civilisation across the railway, as you pass by Stephen Clarke’s Cherwell College. A magnificent edufice (sic).

Crossroads, cemeteries and being close to a river are the hallmarks of the highly respected Indian goddess (devī) Kālī.   You are always welcome here! Read more about the goddess Kālī here.
