Publisher's Summary

"Within my body are all the sacred places of the world," the Buddhist saint Saraha once said, "and the most profound pilgrimage that I can ever make is within my own body."
For 15 centuries the realized masters of the tantric path used the crucible of their own lives to develop a powerful and accelerated means to enlightenment. Today these teachings remain alive within the usually hidden inner courtyard of the Vajrayana vehicle of Tibetan Buddhism, a tradition that requires the courage to engage your body, your human desires, and your most challenging life obstacles as the basic fuel for insight. Now, with Buddhist Tantra, esteemed teacher Reggie Ray introduces you to these precious teachings and invites you to explore the path to naked and unprecedented experience. The popular or exoteric teachings of Buddhism are known to many, yet its esoteric teachings remain relatively unknown in the West. If you have been seeking a gateway to this potent tradition, Buddhist Tantra is an unsurpassed opportunity to enter into the temple of its deepest truths.
Entering the Vajra World Through the Vehicle of Your Body
The word tantra means "to weave through", a metaphor that points to the vibrant fabric of intelligent and living energies that make up the essence of every cell of your body, every fleeting thought you have, and every particle of the universe. Entering this undefiled and ever-renewing vajra world is the promise of the tantric path.

So many precious gems of wisdom in this book.

This book was instrumental in deepening my practice in breathing, holding space and understanding our spiritual experiences.There is great wisdom in his interpretation of great ancient teachings and how they apply to our chaotic, hectic Western lives. Every time I listen to a chapter I hear different points. I would strongly recommend adding this to your collection.

Not My Cup of Tea

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I think that this book is just not my cup of tea. I was looking for inspiration and just heard rules


Would you recommend Buddhist Tantra to your friends? Why or why not?

No I wouldn't. It is like most religions whether it is a religion or not. If you don't do things the way you "should", you are doing it wrong and it won't "work".


What aspect of Reginald A. Ray’s performance would you have changed?

I felt like Reginald was a little too sterile in his delivery.


Do you think Buddhist Tantra needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. It's just not for me.
