Publisher's Summary

Tantra Illuminated takes the listener on a fascinating journey to the very heart of original Tantra: its key teachings, foundational lineages, and transformative practices. Since the West's discovery of Tantra 100 years ago, there has been considerable fascination, speculation, and more than a little misinformation about this spiritual movement. Now, for the first time in the English language, Tantra Illuminated presents an accessible introduction to this sacred tradition that began 1,500 years ago in the far north of India. Using translations from primary Sanskrit sources and offering a profound look at spiritual practice, this book reveals Tantra's rich history and powerful teachings.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Good fortune I stumbled on this book. Oh I wish I had been given this as an insight when I was a boy and watched all these rituals in temples in Tamilnadu. I was so ready to merge to my favourite God. Without knowing the significance of the rituals they became meaningless superstition to me. Tantra can easily revive in India if the teaching in this book were given to young children there. I see so many with passion and faith there. Most will loose their innocence in due time.

From personal perspective I am relieved to know that karmic patterns are can be lost by changing ones entire being. I highly recommend it.

more genuine than other tantra books I've read

although this book dosnt entirely match up with the understanding of traditional tantra that I study with Shri Kali, it clears up a lot of the confusion that new age neo tantra has created in day to day understanding.
