Quantity:

The mysteries of Tantra have engrossed countless meditators for centuries. Since the time of Buddha, these secrets have been passed down from accomplished master to disciple largely by word of mouth.

Now drawing from his own experience and the works of Je Tsongkhapa and other great Tibetan Yogis, Geshe Kelsang clearly sets out all the stages of the four classes of Tantra, giving a full explanation of generation and completion stages. Tantra is revealed as the gateway to a blissful new world.

The book represents a significant milestone in revealing these profound mysteries to the contemporary world.

Drawing on a broad range of Sanskrit and vernacular texts, including written and oral interpretations of contemporary Hindu practitioners, this text describes the unusual qualities of the ten Mahavidyas - Hindu tantric goddesses who are often associated with sexuality and violence.

Reviews:

"...an indepth study...the author has taken immence pains to collect an ocean of details... Being impressively comprehensive, the book is bound to engage any avid reader." - The Astrological Magazine

"Drawing on a broad range of Sanskrit and vernacular texts as well as extensive research in India, including written and oral interpretations of contemporary Hindu practitioners, this text describes the unusual qualities of each of the ten Mahavidyas - Hindu tantric goddesses. Many of the Mahavidyas are associated with sexuality and violence and embody habits, attributes, or identities usually considered repulsive or socially subversive and viewed as "antimodels" for women. The text traces the parallels between the underlying themes between the goddessess and considers how they can act as "awakeners" - symbols which help to project one's consciousness beyond the socially acceptable or predictable." - Editorial Review

"Ingram Written in an accessible, engaging style, author David Kinsley's new book documents a highly unusual group of ten Hindu tantric goddesses the Mahavidyas many of whom are strongly associated with sexuality and violence. The Mahavidyas embody undesirable attributes, yet they serve as symbols for projecting one's consciousness beyond the socially acceptable and predictable. 41 illus." - Editorial Review

TESTIMONIALS

I can not thank you enough for the service that you offer in making such titles as these, readily available for the enquiring mind. It can be difficult here in Europe to escape from the mindset of all encumbering materialism; I find that even our philosophy is tainted by the same; as such it is a pleasure to be able to read the thoughts developed in other climes, those inspired by your beautiful traditions in sanAtana dharma, that of Vedic thought and knowledge....
