Book Description Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Tantra, considered by many as a dangerous and secret path, invariably generates a tremendous amount of curiosity. In this, the first comprehensive book of its kind, Shri Dharmakirti gives us a rare glimpse into the fascinating nature of Tantra. A practitioner of the Mahayana Buddhist Tantra uses his intellect and moral discipline to attain Buddha-hood, the highest state of existence. How to achieve this state was first shown by the Buddha and, after him, by various incarnations of Indian and Tibetan gurus such as the Dalai Lama. The author gives us a detailed account of the moral, ethical and philosophical basis of Buddhist Tantra. He also shows how the Buddhist Tantric Path of the Highest Secret Mantra decisively addresses the three crucial problems that every genuine spiritual warrior must resolve¾ problems of death, sexuality and the true nature of reality. The author discusses various facets of the Buddhist Tantric Path: its history, its harnessing of sexual energy to access subtle levels of reality, the doctrine of Karma, the concept of profound emptiness that is the philosophical core of the Buddha Dharma, and the Wheel of Existence or the Bhava-Chakra. Narrated simply and enriched with visual representations of the authorís vision of Tantra, this is an invaluable guide for those seeking a meaningful spiritual path. Printed Pages: 198. Size: 13 Cms x 20 Cms. Bookseller Inventory # 014108
