This life is a gift from existence, to be lived and enjoyed. But with the seemingly impossible and conflicting demands of society, morality, and culture, people struggle with feelings of unfulfilled potential, frustration, and guilt rather than living full lives. The world of tantra has no division between higher and lower. The simple, ordinary things of life are transformed into great things when we enter into them totally - be it car fixing, floor cleaning, or lovemaking. Osho shows how, by living this vision, new heights of consciousness and freedom are realized. "The days of tantra are coming. Sooner or later tantra will explode for the first time in the masses, because for the first time the time is ripe - ripe to take sex naturally. One thing to be remembered always: If you are not very alert, you may go on believing that you are moving into tantra, and you may be simply rationalizing your sexuality - it may be nothing but sex rationalized in the terminology of tantra. If you move into sex with awareness, it can turn into tantra. If you move into tantra with unawareness, it can fall and become ordinary sex."

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. 1. Language: English.

In Tantric Transformation, we are introduced to the sacred and ancient tradition of tantra by a contemporary tantric master Osho. We are given a detailed map of tantra: inner man, inner woman; the meeting of man and woman; the transformation of energy through sex, love, and meditation. Based on the Royal Song of Saraha, we are not just introduced to an Asian sex tradition, but with Osho we enter the higher levels of transformation. Here, we find tantra as a door to freedom: freedom from all mind constructs and mind games; freedom from all structures; and freedom from the other. Love and meditation merge and provide a path to liberation. Tantric Transformation is a very alive, concrete audiobook for exploration of our own energy, of our own inner space. You don't just listen to Osho; you undefine yourself. (See The Tantra Experience by Osho - part of the same series.) 1. Language: English. Narrator: OSHO.

The Tantric text Vijnanabhairava is a true treasure of spiritual literature. It is one of the most interesting practical documents of Tantric instruction that is direct, practical, and sublime. It can help aspirants immensely in studying Tantra, Yoga, Magick, and enlightenment in general. It contains both a large number of practical methods for obtaining enlightened awareness, but also in its brief way contains a philosophical outlook that is refreshing and fascinating. It expresses the essence of Tantra in a way that no other text, ancient or modern, has ever achieved. It focuses on taking all potential experiences in life and turning them into vehicles for discovering the enlightened awareness that is always there in the background. To dwell with this audio for any time is to catch a taste of the divine in this moment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Rogers.
