This book takes readers on a fascinating journey to the very heart of Tantra: its key teachings, foundational lineages, and transformative practices. Since the West’s discovery of Tantra 100 years ago, there has been considerable fascination, speculation, and more than a little misinformation about this spiritual movement. Now, for the first time in the English language,
Tantra Illuminated presents an accessible introduction to this sacred tradition that began 1,500 years ago, in the far north of India. The book uses translations from primary Sanskrit sources, offers a profound look at spiritual practice, and reveals Tantra’s rich history and powerful teachings.
From the Inside Flap
“Academically sound yet stands out among the dry academic works by being very engaged with the theme of the book .A priceless compendium.”–Hindu Human Rights “I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in learning about authentic non-dual tantra or anyone wanting to deepen their yoga practice.”–Timothy Burgin, Yoga Basics “This book is simply groundbreaking. As a person who likes scholarly material and as a person who likes accessible material, this book is simply like no other. Mr. Wallis’s erudition, accuracy, and detail to the latest and most compelling research is matched by his completely approachable and accessibility to very precise and ancient technology that we call the ‘Tantra.'”–Mark Genco, M.A. Buddhist Studies, Comparative Religions, Naropa University
