Sir John George Woodroffe 15 December — 16 January , also known by his pseudonym Arthur Avalon , was a British Orientalist whose extensive and complex published works on the Tantras , and other Hindu traditions, stimulated a wide-ranging interest in Hindu philosophy and yoga. He was called to the Bar by the Inner Temple in , and in the following year was enrolled as an advocate of the Calcutta High Court. He served there for eighteen years, becoming Chief Justice in He died on 18 January in France. Alongside his judicial duties he studied Sanskrit and Hindu philosophy and was especially interested in Hindu Tantra. He translated some twenty original Sanskrit texts and, under his pseudonym Arthur Avalon , published and lectured prolifically on Indian philosophy and a wide range of Yoga and Tantra topics. Mahadevan wrote: "By editing the original Sanskrit texts, as also by publishing essays on the different aspects of Shaktism , he showed that the religion and worship had a profound philosophy behind it, and that there was nothing irrational or obscurantist about the technique of worship it recommends.
