¶ Bhaskararaya (Bhaskararaya Makhin) (1690–1785) is widely considered an authority on all questions pertaining to the worship of the Mother Goddess in Hinduism. The worship of Shakti involves many hidden meanings of mantras and coded passages. It is said that these meanings were revealed to Bhaskararaya by the Goddess Herself. His works number more than 40 and range from Vedanta to poems of devotion and from Indian logic and Sanskrit grammar to the science of Tantra. The lineage of the succeeding Gurus is unbroken and is now present in Hyderabad of India.
