Tantra – The path of Ecstasy

tantra.jpg

 I am currently reading Tantra – The path of ecstasy by Georg Feurstein. Georg is very well known as one of the best known researchers in Yoga and Indian spirituality. This book corrects many widespread misconceptions and shows Tantrism to be a complex and intriguing tradition that deserves deeper study.

The Tantric teachings are geared toward the enlightenment as well as spritual power and are present not only in Hinduism but also Jainism and Vajrayana Buddhism. Georg offers the readers a clear understanding of authentic Tantra, as well as appropriate guidance for spiritual practice and the attainment of higher consciousness. I will try blogging about the interesting portions of the book whenever possible, but if you get a chance to grab a copy of this book, its highly recommeded reading for all students of spirituality and yoga.
