Publisher's Summary

A new edition of this perennial classic. "The best introductory work on Tibetan Buddhist tantra available today." - Janet Gyatso, Harvard University.

What is tantra? Who is qualified to practice it? How should it be practiced? What are the results? According to Buddhism, every human being has the potential to achieve profound and lasting happiness. And according to the tantric teachings of Buddhism, this remarkable transformation can be realized very quickly if we utilize all aspects of our human energy - especially the energy of our desires. Introduction to Tantra is the best available clarification of a subject that is often misunderstood. Tantra recognizes that the powerful energy aroused by our desire is an indispensable resource for the spiritual path. It is precisely because our lives are so inseparably linked with desire that we must make use of desire's tremendous energy not just for pleasure, but to transform our lives. Lama Yeshe presents tantra as a practice leading to joy and self-discovery, with a vision of reality that is simple, clear, and relevant to 21st-century life.

    "best intro to tantra I've heard"

    I wish i had discovered this understanding of buddhism a long time ago. I made the mistake early on of thinking that earlier buddhism (hinayana) was more authoritative and superior. I have since learned that i have almost no interest in early buddhism, and greatly prefer mahayana and tantric conceptions. this book will also be useful for people studying hindu tantra.

    "Clarifies misconceptions of what Tantra really is about"

    Wonderfully enlightening introduction to the practice of Tantra. Straightforward and easy to understand without being abstract, while maintaining Tantra's divine qualities of mysticism.
