The Hevajra Tantra is a non-dual, Yogini tantra of the late Mantrayana
tradition of Buddhism which was composed in north-eastern India during the 8th
century A.D. This is an English translation of a principal root Tantra together
with a translation of a major commentary by a Maha Siddha which offers an
authentic insights into the radical bio-genetic and psychological views of the
Yogi tradition of Mantrayana Buddhism. These two translations therefore
highlight not only the sophisticated but controversial Buddhist tantric methods,
which constitute the very essence of the Tibetan tantric method, but also
provide an authoritative historical record of the testament to the unique and
uninhibited classic, c. 5th cent. A.D. to c. 13th cent. A.D. tantric period of
Indian religious history.
