Books on Tantra Practice


Ecstasy through Tantra

In Ecstasy Through Tantra, Dr. Jonn Mumford celebrates the joyous and mystical depths of sexual love. People are more open about sex today, and so it is now possible to talk openly about going beyond mere joy, beyond the physical and emotional aspects of sexual union, to the ecstasy of union with Divine Power that is centered in every body and throughout the universe.
In the pages of this book you will learn that you do not need to go to the top of a mountain to commune with Divinity; Its temple is the body, Its sacrament the communion between lovers, and that communion involves all the awesome powers of the universe in the microcosm of the lovers.

You will learn mental and physical exercises aimed at developing that psycho-sexual power. Once you have mastered those techniques, you will find explicit instructions for using sexual activity to achieve your goals on earth (magic) and on the spiritual planes (bliss).

Ecstasy Through Tantra is filled with magnificent original illustrations as well as ones from ancient sources. There are many exclusive photos of ancient temples and erotic sculptures in India, as well as color photographs of couples demonstrating sexual positions for the arousal of kundalini in Tantric practice.

This groundbreaking book is your guide to the world of sacred sexuality.

The Book of Secrets: The Science of Meditation; a Contemporary Approach to 112 Meditations Described in the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra

The Book of Secrets: The Science of Meditation: a Contemporary Approach to 112 Meditations Described in the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra

FROM THE PUBLISHER

In this comprehensive and practical guide, the secrets of the ancient science of Tantra become available to a contemporary audience for the first time. Confined to small, hidden mystery schools for centuries, and often misunderstood and misinterpreted today. Tantra is not just a collection of techniques to enhance sexual experience. As Osho shows in these pages, it is a complete science of self-realizatoin, based on the cumulative wisdom of centuries of exploration into the meaning of life and consciousness. Tantra-the very word means "technique"-is a set of powerful, transformative tools that can be used to bring new meaning and joy to every aspect of our daily lives.




Tantra: Path of Ecstasy

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Tantra-often associated with Kundalini Yoga-is a fundamental dimension of Hinduism, emphasizing the cultivation of "divine power" (shakti) as a path to infinite bliss. Tantra has been widely misunderstood in the West, however, where its practices are often confused with eroticism and licentious morality. Tantra: The Path of Ecstacy dispels many common misconceptions, providing an accessible introduction to the history, philosophy, and practice of this extraordinary spiritual tradition.
The Tantric teachings are geared toward the attainment of enlightenment as well as spiritual power and are present not only in Hinduism but also Jainism and Vajrayana Buddhism. In this book, Georg Feuerstein offers readers a clear understanding of authentic Tantra, as well as appropriate guidance for spiritual practice and the attainment of higher consciousness.

Art of Tantra (World of Art)

FROM THE PUBLISHER
In this comprehensive study of Tantric art, Philip Rawson invites us to join a meditative and visual exploration of the self and the universe. Originating in India in 600 AD and increasingly linked with recent trends of Western art, Tantra is a metaphysical fusion of eroticism, mathematics, and magic, a diffuse worldview in which the cult of ecstasy reigns. It is through the astonishing collection of illustrations in the book--sixteenth century engravings of the process of Creative Generation, reliefs of Hindu goddesses made for worship, a Tibetan magician's costume made of human bone--that Rawson makes accessible the mystical and fundamentally undefinable world of Tantra. 169 illus., 25 in color.

"A book to have for beauty and interest, which may well be a guide to an understanding of life." -Arts Review



Tantra: The Cult of the Feminine

FROM THE PUBLISHER
Explaining that our universe is created by the union of the male and female principles that are manifested on the humane plane as love, Van Lysebeth shows the importance of re-establishing feminine values in our civilization.

SYNOPSIS
Known only for the virtues of its sexual practice, ancient Tantric ideology is a universal and wide-reaching ideology virtually ignored in the West. In Tantra: The Cult of the Feminine, one of Europe's foremost Tantric authors and teachers, André Van Lysebeth, gives readers a balanced, well-informed, modern examination of the secret teachings and symbolism of Tantra.
Espousing no dogma, Tantra involves a search for reality that contradicts neither science nor religion. For Tantra, all of the myriad energy forms in the universe — gravity, nuclear cohesion, electromagnetism — exist throughout the cosmos. "Scientifically speaking, the universe is a gigantic continuum ranging from sub-atomic to astronomical dimensions. Tantrists have perceived this unity for over thirty-five centuries," points out Van Lysebeth in his introduction.

Originally published in 1992 and now being released in paperback for the first time, Tantra has become the classic text on the subject, the source for serious students. Eight full-color illustrations and 36 line drawings complement a comprehensive and contemporary explanation of Tantra, complete with meditations. Van Lysebeth has done a remarkable job of bringing ancient theories into the modern world.



Double Mirror: A Skeptical Journey into Buddhist Tantra


ANNOTATION
Drawing from his personal experience as a practitioner of Buddhist tantra, the author examines the effects of Buddhist practice on personality, autonomy, perception, and health. He discusses what the Buddhist path has to offer Americans and evaluates Buddhism as both a cult and a valid system of personal transformation. Candidly explores such topics as guru devotion.

FROM THE PUBLISHER

In The Double Mirror, the author's personal history - as a student of the late Tibetan master Chogyam Trungpa, known for his unconventional lifestyle and "crazy wisdom" teaching style - is the framework for an incisive and eloquent examination of a profound spiritual journey. Writing both from a critical perspective and from his direct experience of Vajrayana practice, the author looks at Buddhist tantric teachings and practices and their expression in Vajradhatu, Trungpa's organization. While discussing how the institution may sometimes function like a "cult," Butterfield nonetheless experiences Buddhist tantra as an authentic system of profound spiritual transformation. The Double Mirror explores the effects of Buddhist practice on personality, autonomy, perception, and health, and discusses what Buddhism has to offer Americans.
