Tantra in Practice (Hardcover) by David Gordon White. D.G. White, author of the excellent yogic study and adventure story, "The Alchemical Body," here presents an edited compilation of articles about authentic Tantra traditions taken from the length & breadth of Indian-influenced Asia. Countries & cultures include: India (obviously), China, Tibet. Nepal and Japan, with articles on Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, Islamic and Shinto tantric traditions. Topics vary from architecture to ethnography to poetry. The quality of the contributions is uniformly very good--well-written and well-organized--and most chapters include a translation, in whole or part, of an important or obscure tantra. Reading this volume will go a long way toward removing our conditioned ignorance, delusion and gullibility about "sacred sex" and "sacred orgasms," the phallacy of worshipping the linga/yoni of your current hot-sex partner as a god/dess, and the like. (From one of the Reviews at

Kalachakra Tantra: Rite of Initiation (Paperback) by Dalai Lama , His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The Kalachakra--Wheel of Time--tantra is the most detailed and encompassing system of theory and practice within Tibetan Buddhism. It has been popularized in recent times by The Dalai Lama, who publicly gives the Kalachakra initiation every year all around the world. This book is an excellent resource and can be highly recommended to those preparing to take a Kalachakra initiation, such as the upcoming one in Toronto, April-May 2004. HH the Dalai Lama gives one or two Kalachakra initiations every year, so this book should be very valuable in future as well. The book is comprised of two parts: an introduction by Jeffrey Hopkins (first 150 pages) and the commentary/teaching of the Dalai Lama throughout the actual initation (the rest of the book), plus a few texts on 6-session guruyoga and a sadhana at the end. (Reviewer: Nessander)

The Tantric Cookbook of Nini Tantrini is an unusually powerful transmission of collective uses for Kundalini's Shakti-Shiva energy. Magical format, beautiful word art and poetry render each page its own book, the better to explain the tantric recipes for personal evolution and the planet's orbital revolution. Nini, prepared by all Tibetan lineages, traveled to Tibet and the Himalayas four times, where she collected sacred lakes and mountains. At each of these pivot points for geomancy, Nini had contact with "Sky Dancers" who transmitted this book. It is purposely nonlinear and holographic in its scope, to better serve your mental expansion. The great Kalagni is a great light that comes at the end of an aeon. It is a controlled role (roll,) for the magnetic poles and the body's magnetic fields entwine in the ultimate tantric act - a controlled pole shift. Learn how to own and rehone our collective conscious dream - this Earth; by purchasing the limited editon. Most pages printed on white paper, the better to illustrate form and its illusions. A few brightly colored pages highlight expedient information in changing times. There's a holographic foil cover - fragile to sunlight's solar flares, and meant to scratch - phenomena! Color inside cover, 342 pages, 7 by 10 inches, packed with rare beautiful information.

Kundalini Tantra by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. This is a totally revised Edition of Kundalini Tantra brought out by Yoga Publications Trust which has been formed as a separate entity exclusively for Publishing the Books brought out by Bihar School Of Yoga. Kundalini Yoga is a part of the tantric tradition. Even though you may have already been introduced to yoga, it is necessary to know something about tantra also. Since ancient times, the wise have realised that mind can be expanded and that experiences do not necessarily depend on the object. This means that if somebody is playing music, I can hear it, and if somebody has painted a picture, I can see it, but I can also see if there is no picture, and I can also hear if there is no music. This is also a quality of man's personality which has been ignored in the last 150 to 200 years. This Book presents a systematic and pragmatic approach to the awakening of kudalini, which arouses greater intelligence from it's sleep and you can give birth to a new range of creativity.

Introduction to Tantra : The Transformation of Desire by Lama Yeshe, Jonathan Landaw, Philip Glass. This book explains this complicated system very well in approximately 168 pages. For people looking for more in-depth explanations and lots of history, try "Secret of the Vajra World" by Reginald Ray. However, I would still get Lama Yeshe's book as a roadmap or excellent short summary presented in a different style. Lastly, Lama Yeshe has a gift for words. While the many of the concepts of tantra are presented in other reputable works, there is something about Lama Yeshe's presentation that carries a combination of depth and simplicity that sinks in deeply and touches the heart. (Reviewer: Patrick D. Goonan.)

Tantra: Path of Ecstasy by Georg Phd Feuerstein. Feuerstein has attempted a daunting task, defining Tantric Yoga drawn from Hindu and not Tibetan Buddhist sources. To do this, he has assembled a wide-ranging compendium of Hindu, Tantric and Shaivite texts almost impossible to find in one place elsewhere. To plunge into this book is to find yourself rushing down the sacred River Ganges through the heart of India. Like a sophisticated travelogue, it brings into sharp focus the rich tapestry of the Indian ecstatic life and the exotic practices of Tantric Yoga that take place, metaphorically, on the banks of this Queen of rivers. Written with literate modesty and erudition, this book is an invaluable resource. Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. (From Publishers Weekly)

Buddhist Tantra: Teachings and Practices for Touching Enlightenment With the Body [UNABRIDGED] (Audio CD). In 12 in-depth sessions distilled from his years as a practitioner, meditation teacher, and scholar, Ray takes us into the secret heart of the Vajra World to explore: the tantric view of human nature and reality, detailed teachings on the major dimensions of Vajrayana practice, preparation for initiates, the role of the "tantric mentor," and much more. Includes descriptions of specific visualizations, liturgies, inner yogas of the tantric way, as well as the "essence teachings" of Mahamudra Dzogchen.

Secrets of Western Tantra: The Sexuality of the Middle Path by Christopher S. Hyatt. Here is a book which provides a direct, honest, pragmatic, no-holds-barred approach to the most powerful methods for personal growth and spiritual attainment. Sex is one of the most powerful forces on the planet and, until it is transformed, the people and the planet will remain asleep. You will find mixed reviews about this work at

Tantra: The Indian Cult of Ecstasy (Art & Imagination). How does time function? What is ecstasy? What is illusion? How does the kundalini work? These questions and more are answered in the amazing work. In the first half, the author gives a clear and concise explanation of tantrik cosmology, explaining exactly how tantra perceives, men, women and indeed, perception itself. This is followed by a lengthy treatment of the tantrik path of spiritual illumination/transformation which dissolves the world of illusion; the second half of the book features page after page of beautiful tantrik painting & sculpture from India, Nepal and China. I cannot recommend this book too highly. (From one of the Reviews at
