Synopsis

Tantra—oftenassociated 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 licentiousmorality. Tantra:The Path of Ecstasydispels many common misconceptions, providing an accessible introduction to thehistory, philosophy, and practice of this extraordinary spiritual tradition.

TheTantric teachings are geared toward the attainment of enlightenment as well asspiritual power and are present not only in Hinduism but also Jainism andVajrayana Buddhism. In this book, Georg Feuerstein offers readers a clearunderstanding of authentic Tantra, as well as appropriate guidance forspiritual practice and the attainment of higher consciousness.
