"There is a significant difference between the two Tantric paths, that of the right hand and that of the left hand (which both are under Shiva's aegis). In the former, the adept always experiences 'someone above him', even at the highest level of realization. In the latter, 'he becomes the ultimate Sovereign' (chakravartin = worldruler)."
Knight Kadosh Kadosh or Knight is Freemasonry the name of a degree of high Masonic degrees of the former and Accepted Scottish Rite . 30th grade in the scale of grades of this rite, the term "Kadosh" is derived from the Hebrew word "קדוש" which means holy or consecrated. The title of Knight Kadosh is often abbreviated in masonic documents or decorations in the form of C∴ K∴ S∴ or C∴ K∴ H∴.
Tantra is a set of esoteric Indian traditions with roots in Hinduism and Buddhism. Tantra is often divided by its practitioners into two different paths: dakshinachara and vamachara, translated as Right-Hand Path and Left-Hand Path respectively.
Dakshinachara consists of traditional Hindu practices such as asceticism and meditation, while vamachara also includes ritual practices that conflict with mainstream Hinduism, such as sexual rituals, consumption of alcohol and other intoxicants, animal sacrifice, and flesh-eating.
The two paths are viewed by Tantrists as equally valid approaches to enlightenment. Vamachara, however, is often considered to be the faster and more dangerous of the two paths, and is not suitable for all practitioners. The usage of the terms Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path is still current in modern Indian and Buddhist Tantra.

The commonly revered deities seem to demand complete mental and physical submission; their counterpart which is often taught to be hated and avoided and fought usually encourages the liberty to live as you choose.
