Renowned author Borges in conversation with a series of Indian universes belonging to Tantra cosmology. Indian mysticism expresses the world’s will to become symbol, as the Argentinian writer’s imagination turns into words.
The founding of a world congress capable of representing all inhabitants of the globe is an impossible – indeed, a utopian – feat. Borges’ elegant, ironic writing moves deftly between the adventures of this incredible story recalled by the maps of Indian cosmos: interwoven concentric circles, keys to gain access to hidden dimensions of knowledge. Literary fiction and sophisticated Tantric cosmology overlap, opening up to unexplored horizons.
